Quark has introduced Quark Publishing System 8, QuarkCopyDesk8 and QuarkXPress Server 8—new versions of its suite of enterprise software for businesses that base their page layout and publishing workflow around QuarkXPress 8. Quark Publishing System 8 will be available in the fourth calendar quarter of 2008.
Quark Publishing System 8 is designed for marketing departments, creative agencies, magazine and newspaper publishers who need to manage a publishing workflow. Leveraging QuarkXPress 8, the software enables companies to develop a network-based method of seeing work through from conception to output, with several stops along the way. QuarkCopyDesk 8 is text and picture editing software, while QuarkXPress Server 8 acts as the composition and rendering engine.
New features in Quark Publishing System 8 include an adapter for Alfresco Enterprise 2, an open-source content management system; user interface support for 13 languages, and hyphenation and spell-checking for more than 30 languages; improved asset management using QPS Connect Client, now supporting multi-page preview, multiple asset check-in, metadata tagging, custom grouping and full text search; QPS Web Hub support for East Asian languages; and support for native Adobe Illustrator file formats, so you don't have to switch between QuarkXPress and Illustrator for editing.
