Quark has introduced a maintenance update for its QuarkXPress
publishing software. Version 10.0.2 primarily focuses on performance and stability improvements. The release is claimed to represent the first v10.0 build to beat QuarkXPress 9 in many performance categories, though the company admits that panning/scrolling speed is one exception that will be resolved early in 2014.
Aside from the under-the-hood enhancements, Mac users can also take advantage of Spotlight and Quick Look support for integration with OS X search functionality. When used in conjunction with AppStudio, the update also adds 360-degree image rotation and support for scalable vector graphics (SVG) for boxes.
QuarkXPress 10.0.2 is immediately available as a free download
for existing v10 users.
