DesignaKnit 8 Exists!
I spent part of Labor Day catching up on some knitting machine groups and found a lot of posts about DesignaKnit 8.
Per the general brochure, system requirements are:
Windows 98 SE or later.
Free USB port for optional cable links (does not apply to HandKnit).
Screen size at least 800 x 600 pixels.
Approx 500 Mb hard disk space (if install tutorials & manuals). 90 Mb without tutorials & manuals.
No word yet on availability, pricing, or how many lives we’ll get.
According to beta testers, DAK 8 will still work with XP and 32 bit systems as well as the more modern Windows 64 bit operating systems. Sadly, no Mac version. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for DAK 9.
If you have any news, feel free to add to the comments.
Softbyte has posted that registered UK owners of DAK 7 will get info in mid September on how to order the upgrade. Those of us in other countries are encouraged to contact our distributor.
