Looks like a good cause for celebration!" For one, to whom math has been like a second language (I'm very poor at it), I had no idea. But it is indeed a cause for celebration—if for no other reason, than I have managed to come up with something for such a sustained period of time. And the fact that is coincides with the release of Xara X1 is icing on the cake.
The animation above was created with Xara Modules Spectrum Effect. Xara makes this site possible so it would be nice if you just went to
the page and had a look see. Thanks.
Xara X¹ is Here!!!
A great place to start investigating the new version is the Xara X forum on TalkGraphics where the big chief from Xara kicks off the X¹ thread with a very detailed account of what's new.
For the main course, check out the new Xara site at xara.com/xarax (the whole site has a complete makeover to
celebrate the X¹ launch), where you can download the free 15 day trial of Xara X¹ plus there's a summary of ¹ what's new in Xara X. The demo movies are proving very popular and it's our intention to regularly release new ones - you can already find the
first of these in our updated feature tour - take a look at the great photo composition movie in the Photo Handling topic.
Edition 25 of The Xara Xone WebXealot Workbook brings you
further news on the release you've all been waiting for. You'll find Gary's angel on the new and improved features, a Rosetta Stone of the new vs the old buttons and icons, a preview of the new Xara Picture Editor that's included in X¹ and a look at some of the new print related features.
