Xara has been developing computer software since 1981, the early Microcomputer era. It has focused mostly on publishing related software products, starting f r o m Wordwise, a hugely popular Word Processor in the ’80s, to desktop publishing software (Impression) and graphics products in the ’90s for the Acorn RISC computer. Xara’s first Windows product, Xara Studio, was quickly snapped up and marketed by Corel in the late ’90s as CorelXara. The rights were acquired back f r o m Corel and it has since evolved into Xara X and the most recent Xara Xtreme. Xara has a particularly strong technology and innovation history. It pioneered many of the graphics technologies and techniques used by the industry today. It was the first to introduce vector anti-aliasing, the first with vector transparency and graduated transparency and the first with vector feathering. Many of its User Interface techniques have been adopted by the industry. The graphics engine that is at the core of Xara Xtreme still remains the world’s most powerful. In January, 2007, Xara Ltd was acquired by Magix AG f r o m Berlin, Germany. The company now operates as a wholly owned subsidiary.
