ConceptDraw 5.5.1 released
CS Odessa today released a free update to its business diagramming and technical drawing application, ConceptDraw 5.5.1. The latest release features faster object rendering when resizing or moving, as well as improved export to EPS, PDF, and HTML formats. ConceptDraw 5.5.1 adds a library of shapes for diagramming in value stream notation and swim lane shapes. A value stream map depicts the flow of material via graphics from suppliers, through internal processes, and finally to customers. The update offers improved operational speed, text group export to EPS and PDF file formats, page naming in HTML export, and other minor enhancements. ConceptDraw 5.5.1 is available for $300, and upgrades for standard ($80) and professional ($100) versions are available to registered users of earlier versions. ConceptDraw 5.5.1 requires Mac OS X 10.1.5 or later.
