CS Odessa, the developer of ConceptDraw MINDMAP, just announced that its entire ConceptDraw product line will soon incorporate a new technology called TMA – True Multiplatform Architecture. TMA is an internal development tool that will provide enhanced functionality for ConceptDraw programs. Here’s a quote from the company’s announcement:
"Using TMA technology in our software development process means that our applications will be capable of 100 percent of the operational system capabilities available on a particular operating system. The application user interface will now be native for the supported operating system our customer is using, applications will run faster than ever and be able to support all that unique OS-based features, such as Spotlight search on Mac OS X (first available on Tiger). New versions of our products will provide a radically different and improved user experience for our customers," said Oleg Bocharnikov, Head of Product Management Department for CS Odessa.
Another important TMA feature is the possibility to add support of other platforms with a minimum amount of development effort. CS Odessa now has the ability to develop applications that will support Linux and Windows Mobile, providing improved commercial grade applications that support diagramming, mind mapping and project management activities.
This sounds very promising. To summarize: The Mac versions of ConceptDraw products will be enabled with more OS X functionality, such as Spotlight searches. Maps created in ConceptDraw MINDMAP can be easily shared with ConceptDraw VI, CS Odessa’s business diagramming program. And ConceptDraw products may soon be developed for additional computing platforms, such as Linux and Windows Mobile – cool!
I wish I could provide a link for you to learn more, but CS Odessa’s website doesn’t really include a "news" page. I received this news release via e-mail.
