Suitcase 10 Delivered -- Extensis has released Suitcase 10, adding a number of features to the long-standing font management tool. The new version adds the capability to create application sets, which can automatically activate fonts when launching many popular programs; a QuarkXPress XTension also opens any font used in a QuarkXPress document (including fonts embedded in graphics). Suitcase 10 also supports Multiple Master fonts, includes the utility FontBook for previewing typefaces, adds a module for working with font sets from the Control Strip, tracks corrupt fonts, and handles font conflicts. Suitcase 10 requires a PowerPC-based machine running Mac OS 8.6 through 9.1, and costs $100. Upgrades from previous versions or competing font management programs are available for $50. Owners of Suitcase 10 will receive a free copy of the Mac OS X version when it ships later this year. Suitcase 10 is an 8.2 MB download. [JLC]
