This new version 8...... awesome looks and awesome design. At first it looks everything is gone. Then you start clicking around and everything is exactly where you would expect it. Even more 'room for the brain' without losing tools. Awesome! Thanks! 
The new version is excellent. Much simpler to navigate. 
Curio 8 looks beautiful - really excited to learn all the new features!

This software is reason enough to own a Mac...
As always, a no brainer. Curio is the most important Mac App to have.
It is excellent.
Fastest $49 I've ever spent.
For those who use Curio let me say this about that. George is amazing, smart and incredibly responsive to his customers and future customers. This version of Curio is quite amazing. He has thought everything through. What a great product and company! Thanks for all you do George!

It is great to learn that Curio 8 is official. You did a fantastic job putting together a wonder new release. Congratulations.
Thrilled to see it's public now! You've done an amazing job, George.
Excellent job George! Congratulations!
Curio 8 is excellent! Well worth the wait.
Now admittedly I have received a handful of flames where they vehemently reject the simplified interface, but, I'm happy that the vast majority seem to be pleased.

Next steps: I've got an 8.0.3 release appearing soon which nips a PDF bug and I'm finishing up a new Curio 8 overview video which I'll post ASAP.

Curio 8

At long last I'm extremely proud to announce Curio 8.

This is a huge update. A major rewrite of the user interface to modernize it and make Curio much easier to use. A major refactoring of the internals specifically targeting robustness and performance issues. A major clean-up of the Curio project file format to make it much more robust and open up lots of opportunities for future expansion. Plus, of course, lots and lots of new features and enhancements.

In short: it's a biggie.

You can check it out on our website. On that page you can scroll down to check out the list of major new features and even click-through to our incredibly detailed release notes if you want to read more.

On a related note, as I've posted before, ten years ago I had an idea for Curio and started work on it full time. It's been an absolutely amazing journey and I thank all of you -- our fine customers -- for making it a pleasure to wake up in the morning and get to work.

Here's to the next ten years of Curio. :-)
