Just got email from the company Aviary announcing the release of Raven. Raven is a vector editor that complements the other tools that they have: Peacock, visual laboratory; Phoenix, image editor; and Toucan, color swatches.
This website and software is almost great. It is very powerful web based software. That is, you don't download and install, you just click and the software comes up. Truly web 2.0 stuff!
The basic version of everythign is free to use. There is a bit of bait and switch. For example, when you look at the tutorials, those un the basic category are free. You can also look at the first couple of stems in the intermediate or advanced tutorials, but then you get a popul that stops you and requires the subscription to see the rest of the steps.
I don't like this bait and switch approach.
