Deneba Software has released a free update to Canvas 7, the first update since the software's release in November 1999.

The update - version 7.0.1 - includes various new features and enhancements, including an improved HTML Export tool. This provides better compatibility with Netscape Navigator and various other older browsers.

A new Auto Update feature checks for the latest tools, enhancements and fixes. Now, when using a Painting tool the user can immediately begin painting, rather than having to design a bitmap area, select a brush and then paint. Another enhancement is the ability to select objects behind the transparent area of an object.

The update is available free for registered users of Canvas 7 from Deneba's Web site.
