QuarkXPress 5.0 Coming in the Next Few Weeks

Upgrade promotion offers $150 discount By Dave Nagel
QuarkXPress 5.0 will be released within the next few weeks. The information came out in a technical e-mail from the company today. Quark had not previously announced an actual ship date for the full version of QuarkXPress 5. The page layout program went into beta back in September.

The technical e-mail also announced an upgrade discount for version 5.0. Those who purchase QuarkXPress 4.1 between now and the end of the year will automatically qualify for a $150 discount on the upgrade price to QuarkXPress 5.0. The full upgrade price will be $299; the discounted upgrade will be $149. The upgrade to 5.0 has to be purchased before April 30, 2002. Those purchasing 4.1 through a third-party reseller will have to keep their dated receipts in order to take advantage of the offer.


The new version will add several features for both print and Web production. There's a new Layers feature, as well as new table making capabilities. QuarkXPress tables can contain picture and text boxes. Other new print features, according to Quark, include more efficient print user interface, enhanced PDF support, contextual menus and better color management. For the Web, the new version also supports the import and export of HTML and XML.

QuarkXPress 5.0 will support Macintosh and Windows. For more information, visit http://www.quark.com.
