Prior to this release, our customers incorporated flow diagrams into Axure RP using other tools, but now all of that can be accomplished in Axure RP and integrated with the wireframes.

Axure Software Solutions today announced the latest release of Axure RP Pro, a software tool for creating wireframes and defining requirements for web applications. As the leading alternative to traditional diagramming and presentation tools for application design, Axure RP continues to expand its feature set to appeal to application designers struggling to adapt Microsoft Visio and PowerPoint to their needs.

The addition of flow diagramming capabilities in this release allows users to model the diagrams commonly used in application design including page flows, scenarios, and business processes. Victor Hsu, president of Axure Software Solutions explains, “Prior to this release, our customers incorporated flow diagrams into Axure RP using other tools, but now all of that can be accomplished in Axure RP and integrated with the wireframes.”

Axure also continues to add features that make it faster and easier to create richer wireframes and prototypes that cannot be produced using general purpose diagramming tools. The key enhancements in Axure RP include the following:

  •     Flow Diagrams – Includes common flow shapes and connectors for diagramming page flows, scenarios, and business processes.
  •     Advanced Prototypes – Adds the ability to specify an action to perform when a page is loaded.
  •     Foreign Character Support – Provides support for prototyping non-English applications.
  •     Usability Enhancements – Improves the usability of existing features. For example, it is now even faster to create basic links.
  •     Performance Optimizations – Enhances the overall responsiveness of the application.

With this release, Axure provides a comprehensive solution for creating the diagrams used in application design including wireframes and flow diagrams. Application designers using traditional diagramming and presentation tools like Microsoft Visio and PowerPoint now have a complete alternative specifically designed for their needs.
