Dublin, CA - February 28, 2011
Evolphin Software announced today the immediate availability of Zoom 2.8, the first major upgrade since its launch in July, 2010. Incorporating direct feedback from Evolphin user community, Zoom 2.8 provides major improvement in usability, performance, tighter integration with popular tools, enhanced Adobe Creative Suite plug-ins for InDesign and Flash, large previews and a new MacOS X Finder plug-in . The new features make for a more intuitive user interface for artists and designers upgrading from Adobe Version Cue or completely new to version control.
Digital assets are valuable files that need to be stored securely. During their creative process, graphic designers routinely create multiple revisions of the same file. Asset Versioning gives the users, the ability to go back and forth between these versions.
"We would like to thank our user community for the overwhelming response to the first version of Zoom. As a company we listen carefully to what our end-users have to say, this upgrade is a culmination of direct feedback from our users, creative artists, designers, flash developers. They will be extremely pleased with enhancements like smart defaults that minimize clicks in order to execute versioning operations. In addition, tighter integration with tools like Adobe InDesign and Adobe Flash Professional ensure you can streamline your production workflow beyond file formats such as Photoshop and Illustrator which Zoom already supported. Zoom 2.8 raises the bar on what makes for an artist centric version control system." said Rahul Bhargava, President and CEO of Evolphin Software.
