Major Corel product lines, including Corel WordPerfect Office X3 and CorelDRAW Graphics Suite X3, will be updated immediately following the release of Windows Vista
Corel Corporation today announced that it will release Windows Vista versions of each of its major products.
"Corel is pleased to announce our commitment to Windows Vista by offering a full array of products for this new operating system.

"This commitment to deliver outstanding applications for Windows Vista makes Corel software the ideal choice for customers and partners who are planning the move to this new operating system."
Selected Corel products, including the new Corel Snapfire, Corel Snapfire Plus, and Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo XI are currently available as Windows Vista-ready applications, based on the latest pre-release versions of Windows Vista. If required, these products will be updated upon the release of Windows Vista to ensure customers receive the optimal experience on the new operating system.
