Canto released an update for Cumulus at Macworld today. Cumulus 5.5 is an asset management system designed to assemble loose files from a database. The update ships with improved OS X compatibility and an enhanced Pix Asset Converter. According to Canto:
Canto, the global leader in Digital Asset Management solutions, today announced the immediate availability of Cumulus 5.5.2, its award-winning, cross platform line of Digital Asset Management solutions for enterprises, workgroups and single users.
Cumulus 5.5.2 is a service update to previous versions. In addition to bug fixes and improved user handling it includes enhancements in compatibility with Mac OS X Classic Mode and enhanced OPI.
Cumulus 5.5.2 will be offered with an Update Installer so that the update process from earlier 5.5.x versions will be easy. For example, all settings for the Information Window will be converted from 5.x to 5.5.2, so updating no longer requires users to reset that information.
Cumulus 5.5.2 also offers an enhanced Pix Asset Converter which enables digital images cataloged in Cumulus to be converted into JPEG, TIFF and BMP formats, as well as conversion into RGB, CMYK and Greyscale color spaces with the simple click of a button. Changes in size per pixel, percentage and resolution are also possible.
You can find more information about the Cumulus update at the Canto booth 1749 or at the Canto Web site.
