On August 30th, Roxio released a new version of Toast, their popular Macintosh CD and DVD burning software. After launching the application the first time, Toast 7 Titanium make not look much different from Toast 6. True, between versions, not much has changed from the interface. However, several major features have been added “under the hood.”
Two of the most useful new features include support for the DivX video codec and the ability to browse your iLife libraries (iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie, iDVD).Other notable features include:
- The ability to burn large files across multiple discs.
- Compress and copy DVD movies.
- Add over 50 hours of music to an audio DVD – with on-screen TV menus, shuffle play, and rich Dolby Digital sound.
- Turn DivX files into DVDs.
- Create stunning multi-image HD slideshows with collages, motion effects, titles and background soundtracks.
The new slogan for Toast 7 Titanium is “Easier, Better, Possible.”
Roxio is taking a cue from Apple’s playbook and trying to make difficult tasks easier for the user.
