Demicron releases WireFusion 3.1 and updated add-ons

Demicron releases a new version of WireFusion with extended support for Java, improved performance and improved web3D quality

January 13, 2003 - Today the Swedish software developer Demicron announced WireFusionTM 3.1, a new version of its acclaimed Web graphics tool.

Demicron, a leading developer of easy-to-use, high-quality Java software solutions, is now shipping WireFusion 3.1, the newest version of the company's Web graphics tool. Also released are updated WireFusion add-ons, WF-3D, WF-SlideShow, WF-Video and WF-MP3. WireFusion is a drag-and-drop visual-programming tool developed for creating advanced and interactive product presentations for the Web in small and platform independent Java applets.

WireFusion 3.1 has extended support for Java and it is now possible to include native Java AWT components into WireFusion presentations. A new and more intelligent graphics engine ensures better overall performance, especially when creating large presentations.

The updated WF-3D add-on (version 1.1), the web3D solution for WireFusion, has improved quality using real-time edge anti-aliasing. 3D presentations also have improved performance, utilizing the new graphics engine in WireFusion. New camera rotation modes make it easier for users to navigate 3D models on the web and gives an improved user experience. Additionally, Demicron is lowering the price for the WF-3D add-on to $299 US.

An updated version of WF-SlideShow (version 1.1) is also released, which is a slide show add-on for WireFusion. The new version can now replace static slides with interactive and animated WireFusion presentations.

- "Since we released WireFusion 3 and the add-on concept, in August last year, we have really noticed a difference in our sales," says Stefano de Carolis, Demicron's CEO. "More and more professional users are converting from our competitors' tools to WireFusion and our web3D solution, while private individuals seem to prefer our slide show software".
