Quark announced that QuarkXpress 7 is now available to download as part of a public Beta program.
This would represent Quark corp’s last grasp at retaining the leading layout tool in the publishing industry.
If this release does not improve on InDesign CS2 and also retain Quark’s ultra-reliable output engine – say good-bye!
Please note, whilst it is useful to get a glimpse of where a tool as important as QuarkXpress 7 is heading – I would recommend AGAINST installing this software on a production machine. Beta means feature complete but still containing bugs.
