QuarkXPress 5.0 Now Shipping -- Quark has begun shipping QuarkXPress 5.0, a long-simmering upgrade to the company's industry-leading page layout software. The new version includes a tables feature for working with tabular information, layers for managing separate design elements, plus improved AppleScript support and color enhancements. QuarkXPress 5.0 also features Web publishing and XML export tools for designers using the program to create files not traditionally associated with page layout. Although Quark has stated that a Mac OS X version is under development, QuarkXPress 5.0 runs only under Mac OS 9 or the Classic environment of Mac OS X. The program is priced at $900, with upgrades available at $300 for registered owners of QuarkXPress 4. [JLC]
