Computer Systems Odessa has released Concept Draw 1.5 - its cross-platform application for creating business and technical drawings.

The program comes with over 70 libraries, which help when drawing all kinds of charts and diagrams. The application features drawing tools, text editing, HTML export facilities, and can program object behaviours.

New features in 1.5 include two tools (Smart and Direct Connection Mode) that let users set automatic connection modes in the program. This means objects can be added to charts and will automatically connect with the previously selected object there.
