News, Quark, QuarkXPress 2015

Quark just released the El Capitan Update for QuarkXPress 2015.

Just run Auto Updater inside QuarkXPress or use the following link to download the El Capitan Update for QuarkXPress 2015:

And Quark is getting quicker when it comes to adding support for new versions of OS X:

  • When Apple released Mountain Lion, it Quark 19 days to release an officially supported version of QuarkXPress (which was QuarkXPress 9.3.1)
  • When Apple released Mavericks, it took Quark 17 days to release an officially supported version of QuarkXPress (which were QuarkXPress 9.5.4 and 10.0.1)
  • When Apple released Yosemite, it took Quark 20 days to release an officially supported version of QuarkXPress (which was QuarkXPress 10.5)
  • Now, with El Capitan, it took Quark just 9 days to release an officially supported version of QuarkXPress (which is QuarkXPress 2015)

Still, when upgrading your OS X to El Capitan please remember to create yourself a backdoor beforehand:

Users of QuarkXPress 10, 9, 8 and earlier:
Quark will not support any version prior to QuarkXPress 2015 on El Capitan.
Though not supported QuarkXPress 8 and 9 seem to “work” ok on El Capitan (with some flaws). QuarkXPress 10 crashes badly on El Capitan. The engineering team will look into the crash issues of QuarkXPress 10 on El Capitan to determine whether anything can be done about it, however we might not be able to, so this is not a promise. I will probably be able to comment on this in maybe 5-6 weeks from now.

  1. Matthias Guenther Says:

    As you know, QuarkXPress 10 is NOT supported under El Capitan and Quark also doesn’t plan to add support for this combination.

    If you need a supported version of QuarkXPress under El Capitan, then please use QuarkXPress 2015.

    ———————————————————————

    However some users absolutely needed QuarkXPress 10 to work under El Capitan (10.5.2 crashes almost immediately under El Capitan), e.g. for downsaving.

    Therefore Quark just released a special version of QuarkXPress 10, which is completely unsupported, however does not crash under El Capitan e.g. when moving the mouse cursor over a palette:

    IMPORTANT: AS THIS IS A JUST BRIEFLY TESTED VERSION OF QUARKXPRESS 10 AND IS NOT SUPPORTED BY QUARK, PLEASE TEST THOROUGHLY YOURSELF BEFORE USING FOR PRODUCTION!
