Corel releases WordPerfect Suite 8, the latest upgrade to its office productivity software.

Corel today at PC Expo released WordPerfect Suite 8, the latest upgrade to its office productivity software.

The newest addition to the suite is CorelCentral, a set of personal information utilities integrated with Netscape Communications' Communicator suite. Central will have email, an address book, a card file, discussion group threads, telephone and whiteboard conferencing, and a scheduler based on Starfish Software's Sidekick, which Corel integrated into version 7 of its suite.

The standard edition will include WordPerfect 8, QuattroPro 8, Presentations 8, CorelCentral, PhotoHouse 1.1, Netscape Navigator 3.0, the Envoy 7 viewer, 30-day Internet access, Bitstream Font Navigator 2, plus font, clip art, and photo libraries. Installation of CorelCentral will automatically upgrade the browser to Navigator 4.0.

Corel also inked a deal with Grolier to include the 1998 Grolier Multimedia Encyclopedia in Corel WordPerfect Suite 8 and Corel WordPerfect Suite 8 Professional editions.

The suite is priced at $395. Users of previous versions and competitive packages can upgrade for $179.
