ArtWorks 2.5 will include PDF exportBy Chris Williams. Published: 2nd Sep 2005, 13:47:46 | Permalink | Printable
To be ready before the end of 2005In a welcomed change of heart, ArtWorks 2 will now feature PDF export before the year is out. As part of version 2.5, the vector graphics package will be able to generate PDF documents without any intermediary steps or software, whilst preserving transparency and graduated fill objects. With support for CMYK colour, PDF files produced from Artworks should be suitable for professional printing.
Other potential features on Martin Wuerthner's to-do list include multi-page documents and alpha channel export. Earlier in August, Martin initially feared that PDF export in ArtWorks would be "very expensive to implement" and that sales of ArtWorks 2.4 would not economically justify the cost of development.
MW Software hopes to charge 30 quid for the 2.4 to 2.5 upgrade, although this is subject to change.

Prototype affordable Braille display in development
A low-cost computer-controlled Braille board has been prototyped by a RISC OS-using university student. Undergraduate Edward Rogers hopes to sell his completed units for as little as 200 quid each to schools and families to allow more blind children to continue learning Braille. And he said he wanted to launch his venture using RISC OS-powered kit before offering a package for other platforms.
