CS Odessa on Thursday announced the forthcoming release of ConceptDraw Project 4 for Mac OS X and Windows. It will cost US$199, and upgrades will be available for ConceptDraw Project 3 users.

ConceptDraw Project 4 is project management software. It enables users to plan and track multiple projects simultaneously, allocating and managing shared resources.

The new version has a totally reworked interface that makes it easier to navigate between project views using a tabs toolbar. New to version 4 is a "Resource Usage View" that lets you have an instant idea of resource loading and task allocation. The new release also has a revised text editor that's easier to use, along with a major rework to ConceptDraw Project 4's reports system.

System requirements will call for Mac OS X v10.4 or later, G3 or better, 128MB RAM, 20MB hard disk space.
