Message Text: Roxio today announced Toast 7, the most significant upgrade ever to its Mac CD & DVD burning suite.

Toast 7 will be publicly available direct from Roxio starting August 31 and in stores in early September.

Headlining the latest version is a number of features that make previously impossible tasks a reality for Mac users. These features include multi-image High Definition slideshows with pan and zoom effects, transitions and background soundtracks, audio DVDs with over 50 hours of rich Dolby quality music and advanced navigation, and data spanning, which allows users to backup large files, folders and applications across multiple CDs and DVDs.

"Toast 7 delivers enhancements and features that I've always wanted along with some ingenious capabilities that I never even knew I needed," said Thomas Santee, Toast 7 beta tester. "Although it's packed with new features, Toast 7 has the same simple workflow and a design that I know so well."

Toast 7 also supports DivX 6. The integration of the latest compression technology allows users to turn DivX format files into DVD-Video discs. In addition, users are able to convert any video file to DivX and turn iMovie HD and FinalCut HD projects into true high-definition video discs to enjoy in the comfort of their living room on their DivX HD-enabled DVD player.
