New QuarkXPress Server 9 Supports Hosted Services

Apr 21, 2011

Quark is releasing QuarkXPress Server 9, the latest version of Quark's dynamic publishing server for systems integrators and application developers. QuarkXPress Server 9 features a web-based user and administrator interface that lets users access the server from any enabled computer for configuration and management. The release also includes complete compatibility with QuarkXPress 9, and allows third-party developers to offer hosted software as a service (SaaS) solutions such as Web-to-print offerings.

Key features of the Web-based user interface include a preferences menu that lets users configure the preferences for both QuarkXPress Server and QuarkXPress, a status monitor that shows users what each renderer is processing, a transaction log to track server requests, download logs, a document pool management tab, and a variety of new automation features that help designers automate publishing processes while controlling layout templates.
