As the subject line says, im just wondering what the shipping dates are like for the boxed version. I have ordered the upgrade version from Amazon UK and an estimated dispatch date of the 15th March is listed on my order confirmation. Obviously, ive seen elsewhere dates such as 27th mentioned.

I am currently using (aside from my old trusty X4 ;)  ) the trial version which now has 20 days left on it.

Enjoying working my way through it and have just had a play with the mesh tool... superb improvements in that area guys! - WELL impressed. X5 really does feel like a far more polished product than X4.

Andy,

our internal target date is March 24 for North America and Western Europe, and we have actually started shipping some orders in North America at the every end of last week. For Latin America and Australia / New Zealand, we will start shipping from our warehouses on March 24, but it will take a little longer to find its way (shipping + customs can take a while).

As a side note regarding the box, I posted a little video showing it: http://community.coreldraw.com/blogs/gerard/archive/2010/03/19/preview-of-the-coreldraw-graphics-suite-x5-packaging.aspx

Andy, I cant agree more, its a very nice version. There are so many seemingly  nice little things. New brushes/nibs in both CorelDRAW and Photo-Paint is never bad for a fellow illustrator. Naming objects in Photo-Paint X5´s new Objects Docker might seem a little thing to go all crazy about, but I kind of do. Simply place the cursor on the objects name and write. Simple. Brilliant work by Corel Dev team. And those who say not much have been added to Photo-Paint seem to forget that all the new Colour Management stuff is there for both CorelDRAW & Photo-Paint. As a beta tester I got to try out the brushes in Photo-Paint, and used them on large scale illustrations (2,5 x 1 meter, 3,5x3 meters) that  I made for an exhibition at the Maritime historial museum in Stockholm, Sweden. Running until may 2011: http://vemarpirat.sjohistoriska.se/

Andy,
 
My understanding is that boxes ordered from Corel will ship on March 24th. I'm not sure the date for shipping from other sources though I would assume it would be no earlier than the 24th.

I think that the more you use X5 and try out the existing tools, you realize how much better some of them are. Obviously, there are the additions of the B-Spline tool (which has now replaced "Pen" as my tool of choice for the color layer of my drawings) extra brushes, the Document Palette (REALLY useful) and as you mention, the CM engine. Ive even found improvements over X4 in the exporting of PNG images.

Congrats on the illustrations for the exhibition :) - Were your's the colour images in the video on that site?

Thanks Foster, ah perhaps its the 24th I was thinking of. Im going to be cutting it very fine with the trial version I think :D - Not a problem, I still have X4 installed and working. Its feeling kinda left out since I put the X5 trial on here though ;)

Yes, thanks for checking it out :-)
The yellow and black-ish illustration was the poster that run in december in the underground/subway trains and ad stands on the streets, and ads in the papers and invitation cards.

Getting jittery now... I have 12 days left on the evaluation version and Amazon just put the shipping date back to the 24th (although I know it will likely be later than that)

After using X5, ive become spolied and dont want to go back to X4 even for a few days :D

Hi Gerard,

Many thanks for replying to the question. Video of the box looks superb. I love the idea of the hardbacked cover book.

I only have 6 days left on the trial version which may well end before the box version arrives from Amazon. Is there any way to extend the trial version by even a few days? (I think this was done for X4 when it was released) - Not a major issue if not as I still have my old faithful X4 installed ;)
