Zevrix Solutions has announced the release of a new document packaging workflow automation tool for Adobe InDesign. Package Central automates InDesign packaging by processing files from hotfolders and offers font auto-activation, e-mail notifications, detailed processing logs, and more. The software runs on a dedicated machine and can monitor a list of "hot folders" that are linked to its workflow settings. All of Package Central's functions can be automated allowing it to run unattended and support has been included for submitting files from both Mac and PC computers. Package Central runs on Mac OS X 10.4.2 through 10.6 and can be purchased for $500.
Pre-orders for The Settlers 7 now being taken
Macgamestore.com is currently accepting pre-orders for UbiSoft's upcoming strategy game, The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom. The game allows players to create and manage their own kingdom of fortified towns and small villages. As players expand their kingdom they will have to make decisions on how to build transport systems, what to spend money on, how to optimize production chains, and more. The game also allows users to customize their own castle with a range of different styles, designs, and architectural details. Customers who per-order the game for $50 before it ships on March 23rd will also receive a free copy of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Hard Evidence.
