Quark today announced QuarkXPress 7.02, the latest update to its flagship (Universal) desktop publishing application. The release provides new, up-to-date functionality, including license-transfer features and typographic support for new languages as well as resolution of the most important issues reported by customers since the product shipped, according to the company. The new License Transfer functionality allows customers to deactivate and activate the software without relying on external resources; in addition, the new license agreement allows customers to run previous versions of QuarkXPress in parallel to QuarkXPress 7 on the same machine.
