Today Quark released the 10.0.2 update to QuarkXPress 10, bringing increased speed and some new features. See below for Quark’s announcement:
DENVER, CO – December 17, 2013 – Quark announced today the availability of QuarkXPress® 10.0.2, a new update to version 10. The update is free to existing QuarkXPress 10 users through Quark Update and is also available to download.
QuarkXPress 10.0.2 addresses performance issues reported by users and is the first version of QuarkXPress 10 to beat QuarkXPress 9 in many performance categories.* In addition to major performance, quality and stability improvements, the update offers new functionality.
For Mac OS X Users: QuarkXPress 10.0.2 now supports Spotlight and Quick Look so documents can be searched and previewed.
For App Studio Users: QuarkXPress 10.0.2 adds a new enrichment – 360° Images – that allows images to rotate completely within an app. The update also optimizes upload speed to my.appstudio.net and uses scalable vector graphics (SVG) for boxes in order to decrease issue file sizes and dynamically adapt to display resolutions.
Ramesh Yella, QuarkXPress Product Manager, said, “The introduction of the new Xenon Graphics Engine in version 10 was a big step forward in terms of quality image rendering on Retina and non-Retina displays. There is a lot more to come from the new graphics engine and we are already starting to see multiple areas where not only the quality is ahead of previous versions but so is the performance.”
The 10.0.2 update is free to existing QuarkXPress 10 users through Quark Update and is available to download.
