Quark’s 8.02 updater for QuarkXPress does five things:
- It adds the color libraries for Pantone’s Goe Bridge coated collection of 2,058 colors.
- It fixes some bugs.
- It has an easier process for installation over a network.
- It lets you activate the free 60-day Test Drive version to a full version without requiring a reinstallation.
- It localises the interface for Danish, Norwegian, Czech, Portuguese (European), and Finnish.
The updater is available at http://8.quark.com/downloads/login.aspx.
Bugs that are fixed include problems with copy/paste of imported PSD, TIFF, and JPEG images, improper display of fonts in imported EPS files if QuarkXPress preferences are stored in the user Library folder, hyphenation and drop cap issues, text in anchored tables, and more.
A complete list of the bugs that have been fixed, as well as any remaining issues they know of, is available at http://8.quark.com/techinfo/known_issues.html. One thing to note: QuarkXPress 8.02 is not currently compatible with Quark Publishing System (QPS) 8.
