Corel "Quadrupling" Mac Team -- In an apparent effort to squash speculation it will not pursue development of WordPerfect for Macintosh (see TidBITS-313), Corel announced it is "nearly quadrupling" its Macintosh development staff and plans to release CorelDraw for Macintosh this June. However, Corel's release doesn't actually say it will pursue development of Mac WordPerfect, just that it's "committed to the Mac" and "more good things are on the way." WordPerfect users can only hope the intent is clear, even if the language is not. [GD]
Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the best-selling Take Control ebooks.
