This week at the Seybold show in San Francisco, Corel Corp. announced CorelDRAW 10 Graphics Suite for Windows, scheduled to ship in the fourth quarter. But the company also has plans to release a Mac OS X version with feature parity between the two platforms.
CorelDRAW 10 Graphics Suite for Mac will include all of the components offered on the Windows side, including a new program called RAVE, a vector-based animation program that can output to a variety of formats, including Flash.
According to Corel, the Mac version is all Carbonized and ready to go; the company's just waiting for Apple to ship the full release of OS X, which is expected in early 2001.
In case you're wondering whether you missed anything, there has never been a CorelDRAW 9 for the Mac platform. Corel says it was intending to release an interim version (between versions 8 and 10) for OS X this summer until Apple pushed back the release of OS X.
In addition to RAVE, CorelDRAW 10 Graphics Suite includes, of course, CorelDRAW 10 and Photo-Paint 10. Here's a quick look at some of the new features of each expected in the retail release.

The Mac OS X version of CorelDRAW 10 Graphics suite is expected to ship shortly after the full release of Mac OS X. Pricing was not available at press time, but the current version of the suite for Windows sells for $429. For more information, visit http://www.corel.com.
