I don't think it's ready for end user testing. Doesn't work with Safari
at all, kind of works with Firefox 2.x but it's not intuitive and looks
terrible. Sorry for my harsh words but in its current state I wouldn't
show it to anybody.

I’m sorry I have to say I agree. Doesn’t work reliably on any browser and you really need to get a good designer (if possible someone who also has some good usability ideas). It’s not production ready, that’s for sure.

Best regards

Dear Friends,
In continuation of our Agile daily builds, today we have put 2 more
Usability fixes to Firedraw (www.firedraw.org):

1. While creating New File (using Right click menu or New File link),
a pop-up is provided to put in new file name.
2. For drawing connectors, now all possible connect points are
highlighted when Connector icon is clicked.

Also, some minor changes like adding different cursor types for
actions are also incorporated.
Requesting your kind feedback on Firedraw.

Thanking You,
Your's Truly,
