Quark releases QuarkXPress 6.1 Update

On Wednesday, Quark released QuarkXPress 6.1 Update, a ~75MB download. Among the changes listed as being included in the update are: Support for Mac OS X v10.3 Panther - Um...Yea. It seemed to work in Panther just fine. But we all know how buggy, or quarky, Quark is. So I am sure they smoothed out some jagged edges. It seems to run as it did before. Improved integration with Microsoft Excel - It sure is. I can confirm this. It is much nicer bringing in tabular data and working with it in Quark. Ability to select a picture then open and edit it in a preferred image editing application - This is a great feature, and something that I won't use. The way InDesign works with Illustrator and Photoshop documents is a thing of beauty, and cannot be matched. But this is better then nothing. New font mapping utility to create and manage rules to govern automatic font substitution - Anything is better the Courier New right? I don't know about you, but if I see that a font didn't load I go turn the font on. Updating went just fine. I did NOT need the installer CD, I read you did. And thank god I did not have to retype that 48 digit install code. I am running Quark License Administrator (QLA), and had no problems with the quark licenses talking to the QLA server. Quark is really turning around. They are shivering in their britches because InDesign is gaining momentum. I have actually, for the first time ever, had good to excellent tech support from Quark when I have had to call them with QLA related questions.
