Quark 8's new extensions
Xtags is a text-import filter, working with picture-based data publishing, input code conversion, classified ads and more. In v8.3.2 it features a 10x speed bump when importing unanchored boxes and adds new rotation capabilities. It requires QuarkXPress 8.0 or later (and works with QuarkXPress 6 and 7 as well), and ships for approximately $355.
DataFormXT is a bi-directional database to QuarkXPress connector. Version 8.0.0.02 adds QuarkXPress 8 compatibility. It creates QuarkXPress documents from a database, can export documents and can update documents as the database changes. It is shipping now for $1200.
