GUI Design Studio 2.4 Released

November 29th, 2007

We’re pleased to announce that GUI Design Studio version 2.4 has now been released and is available for immediate download. If you’ve already tried a previous version or subscribed to our newsletter then check your email for download instructions, otherwise please request a trial.

GUI Design Studio version 2.4 is now Vista compatible with changes that include:

  • Documentation Generation
    • Now you can add rich, formatted descriptions to all of your design elements.
    • Element Notes

    • Generate specification documentation that describes your entire project or just a section of it. Formats include RTF and PDF:

      PDF Documentation Generation

      And hyperlinked HTML:

      HTML Documentation Generation

    • Create update documentation that includes only the designs that have changed since the last documentation was generated, saving time and resources.
    • Built-in spell checker available for UK and US English (with Spanish available on request).
    • Documentation translation files available for many languages.
  • Popup Annotations
    • Element descriptions appear in a popup tool-tip window within the design editor and, optionally, during prototype simulation.
    • Annotation Popups

    • This helps to convey your design intentions more quickly and easily for faster feedback and clarification of business rules.
  • Improved File Performance
    • Design documents now open and save faster with greatly improved performance across a local area network (LAN) drive.
    • Loading heavily interlinked designs (such as Web Applications) used to be a bit slow. Not any more! All designs now load quickly and, in some cases, over 100 times faster than in previous versions, making you more productive.
  • Other Enhancements
    • Transparency is now supported in GIF and PNG image files for greater design flexibility and better support for custom elements.
    • Transparent Image Support

    • Changes made to a component design are now instantly visible in other designs (in most cases) without having to manually refresh.
    • Plus lots of other tweaks and bug fixes.

As always, we’d love to hear your comments and suggestions so grab yourself a copy of the new version and let us know what you think!
