Ottawa, Canada-based Corel Corp’s 32-bit Corel Office suite for Windows95 will use technologies taken from SoftKey International Inc’s WordStar for Windows 2.0. Cambridge, Massachusetts-based SoftKey stresses that Corel has not bought the WordStar for Windows 2.0 word processing program, as seemed to be implied in a US press report, but has licensed core program functions including the frame technology. The full suite from Corel will provide a word processing application able to import CorelDraw graphics files. To augment this, Corel is planning to acquire groupware and personal information manager applications. Also included in the suite will be Business CorelDraw, a cut-down version of its graphics program and an expansion of CorelChart into a spreadsheet for the suite, which will be shipping on CD-ROM.
