In the middle of 2008 we released version 3.0 of GUI Design Studio. This was a major step forward for creating user interface mockups and prototypes with the introduction of the Windows Vista visual style option, Ribbon Bar elements, better Web application support and a bunch of other enhancements.
You may have noticed our new Website redesign and, while we’ve been planning a lot of new product developments, we’ve realised that we didn’t release nearly enough versions of GUI Design Studio in the year as we’d intended. we aim to fix that!
So we’re taking a different approach for 2009. Our new plan is to make a new release of GUI Design Studio roughly once every month so that you can benefit from all the latest updates sooner or upgrade whenever it’s convenient.
With this new, incremental development plan, you’ll be seeing regular small improvements with major new features thrown in, every once in a while, as they get completed.
I don’t want to reveal too much detail at this stage about the biggest new features we have planned (you’ll find out about them in due course) but, to give you a taster, here’s a few of the things we’ll be looking at:
Our goal has always been to ‘help you produce software that better meets users’ needs’. Keep sending us your suggestions and feedback to let us know what’s really important to you and help shape the tool for everyone.
We’ll certainly be keeping busy in 2009 and we wish you a very happy and productive year!
