QPS 7.4

Quark has announced Quark Publishing System 7.4, the second maintenance release of its industry leading collaborative workflow system. Based on Java, this release of QPS adds as support for Mac OS 10.5 Leopard, full text search and LDAP support. In addition, the new QPS Web Hub now runs with Apple's Safari browser as well as Firefox. QPS user names and passwords can now be managed through a company's active directory to consolidate user management. Full Text Search allows users to search document content within any assets that are stored in QPS. There is also the added ability for users to check in multiple assets at the same, and Russian and Polish interfaces are now available in QPS.

QPS 7.4 supports QuarkXPress 7 and QuarkCopyDesk 7, and QPS Web Hub, a Web tool that enables users to create, edit, and preview content online, as well as manage assignments, publications, and projects remotely. Server-side scripting is also available to support integration with other publishing systems and to automate processes.

Quark will demonstrate QPS, QuarkXPress, QuarkCopyDesk, and Quark DPS in booth #732 at NEXPO from April 12 to April 15 in Washington, DC.

    i 2nd that...

    why won't it just die... Why!?!?

    A lot of jobs are still requiring Quark knowledge as a prerequisite. And I don't want to learn a program that's slowly losing popularity and will likely become extinct. It would be so much easier if everyone just switched to InDesign.

    here to stay

    I've used InDesign and it didn't impress me. Way too slow even on a fast Mac. It also doesn't have the extensive range of plug-ins that are available for QuarkXPress. For me QuarkXPress is still king.

    "I don't want to learn a program that's slowly losing popularity and will likely become extinct. It would be so much easier if everyone just switched to InDesign."

    That's a horrible outlook. Adobe is the second worst software company in the world (after Microsoft). A single-vendor, single-product solution is exactly how Microsoft became a monopoly in the enterprise.

    More and more, adobe is gaining share in the Windows world so it's entirely possible that years from now they may drop the Mac product line altogether to focus on Windows. Quark will be a real lifesaver then.
