Bibble Labs specializes in workflow software with quick and efficient editing, and plenty of management options. Their solution, Bibble 5 Pro, is well loved by the community and was just recently updated for additional camera compatibility. It’s a minor update, but it’s the last one that’s coming down the pipeline.
The reason, as it turns out, is that Bibble was purchased by Corel. According to company president Jeff Stephens this actually occurred “earlier in 2011” but the deal has been kept quiet until now. He says that everyone from Bibble is now working at Corel on various new projects.
“I’m now running product development for Corel’s new photo workflow solution that is based on the core Bibble technology,” says Stephens in a post on the company’s support forums. “What’s even better is that I now have access to dedicated user interface and graphic designers… a full QA team dedicated to product testing, along with documentation and localization teams, marketing and sales teams, and a huge, international distribution system to help get our technology the notice it deserves.”
The official announcement and the reveal of the new Corel-branded software will be happening at CES this week.
