Quark released QuarkXPress 7.1, an upgrade to its desktop design software. The latest upgrade offers performance enhancements that make the design software more responsive.
Quark made performance improvements in several key areas, including text selection, clipped images and flattening features. Each feature has received a performance boost, resulting in faster production times. In addition, the Universal Binary upgrade provides performance improvements throughout the application, and the company states that in some areas QuarkXPress 7.1 is up to five times faster on Intel-based Macs than PowerPC.
QuarkXpress 7.1 costs $749 for a new purchase, but is free as an upgrade for Quark 7.01 users. Previous QuarkXPress users can get the upgrade for $199.
