When is CorelDRAW X6 (or next version) coming out?

Don't they usually release new versions in Feb?

Hopefully the next version has better 3D features like Adobe Illustrator CS5's.

  • The versions are marketed only after thoroughly tested. From what we know is that nobody in this Forum know nothing about the date of its release. But, just wait, I believe it still require a few months ahead ...

  • The last four versions have started shipping in February of even numbered years. Of course the next one could change the cycle, we just won't know until Corel is ready for us to know.

    that's what I thought... i was wondering what happened to the "usual" FEB release...  so much for that.  Hopefully X6 (or whatever its name will be) will be a major release, and not just a lipstick release.  Glad they "FINALLY" fixed dimensioning in X5...so hopefully it won't get broke in X6.

    A short answer: nobody know the date of the next release. A better explain: if somebody know the date still didn't say anything. Corel never launched one version every year, always was at least two years. And not all version were launched on February, some versions were launched on January or March.

    Hi.

    That's weird. I heard they were pushing for Valentine's Day.

    Valentine's Day in 2011 is on Monday, the 14th of February.

    Facebook could be wrong. Smile

    The ONLY real answer is a message on the official Corel site or a message from a member of Corel corp., such as Gerard's blog. All other information is not valid, no matter when or where was published. Remember the lauch of CorelDRAW X3, X4 and X5, and all fake information about the launch, the date, the image....

    Hi.

    I think it would be really cool if SP3 for X5 came out after X6 is released. This would send a huge POW! shockwave through the community and help to solidify trust and value of Corel products.

    SP3 is X6 that's the way it works. That has as much chance as a mac version... in Australia it is called 'Buckley's Chance'.

    What we need is an online bookmaker to take bets on the release day.

    No, a service pack is not a new version, and an update is not an upgrade. At least, what I want for X6 is not a service pack of X5, or "more of the same". X6 must be a big step forward (and not as one former president of Uruguay said: we were facing a deep abyss, but now we have taken a big step forward ") Big Smile

    HI.

    This is the idea that needs to be obliterated.

    Support for X5 should continue far after X6 is released and releasing an SP3 for X5 would make a huge statement to this point.

    Ariel,
     
    Corel DID release annual versions in the old days. They were all tied to be the same date as the International Design Contest in late May.
