QuarkXPress 8.5 adds DOCX support, automatic updater

updated 01:30 pm EST, Tue November 16, 2010

PANTONE color libraries get updates

Quark is distributing QuarkXPress 8.5, an update to the company's professional-level publishing suite. The focus of the upgrade is on support for DOCX, the XML-based format enabled by recent versions of Microsoft Word. QuarkXPress users can both import and export DOCX files.

The software now also includes an automatic updater, which will check for new downloads and grab them as they become available. Quark has lastly upgraded the suite's PANTONE color libraries to include four new PANTONE+ options: CMYK, Color Bridge, Pastels & Neons (Coated & Uncoated) and Premium Metallics Chips (Coated). QuarkXPress is $799 new, or $299 as an upgrade.

Quark notes that purchases from now until November 30th are eligible for one of two free bundles. The Magic Software Bundle includes Markzware's MarkzTools and ID2Q, along with 1,000 OpenType fonts. A Magic Maintenance Bundle instead offers a year of free upgrades, telephone support and access to the OpenType material.
