CS Odessa's ConceptDraw 7 is available now, the latest version of the vector drawing and diagramming application.

The release is a Universal Binary and sports a revised user interface as well as performance gains in contrast to the previous version.

The souped-up UI offers customizable toolbars and well designed inspectors that should help make the preparation of business graphics effortless for users without advanced drawing skills.

ConceptDraw 7 offers a huge shape and object library, boasts better printing abilities than before, and adds colour manipulation and a larger colour palette.

Available as a cross-platform application for eight years now, the developers are also introducing a new licensing system within this release - users can now install ConceptDraw on both one Mac and one Windows machine.

A free trial version of the $299 application is available from the manufacturer's website.
