Will there be a QuarkXpress 2016 this year ?

I'm just wondering... that's all... asking the question and all that.

I would hope there would be... so that Quark keeps moving forward and building on the successful launch of QXP2015.

Any info would be most welcome. Let the hype begin!! :)


Regards,
Anthony

Hi Anto,

I already gave a small statement regarding this in the Facebook group:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/quarkxp ... 161051500/

Thanks
Matthias
Feel there should be more chatting, more tips, more user interaction?

FaceBook insists I log in.

I know so many people like myself that have not and will not use FB.

Hi Mike,

since we have opened the new Facebook Group in July last year, we have seen hundreds of customers posting there, whereas the posts in the forums here have decreased.

I prefer forums myself, as it's easier to categorize and notify, however the interaction in the group shows me that most people seem to prefer Facebook. This morning alone there were 15 new posts in the Facebook Group. So maybe that's the new way how people want to interact?

Bottom-line what I wrote there: When we switched QuarkXPress from version numbers to a release scheme, we didn't mean to indicate that there will be yearly releases. Apple, Oracle, Adobe and especially Microsoft show that you can use a release date over several years. If I remember correctly the last MS Office used the same "year" for four or five years.

Thanks
Matthias

Hi Mathias--perhaps I am a dinosaur. Probably evident because I still work in print ;)

As for people using FB more than the forums? Maybe it is evidence in changes from both sides of the equation. Faster to post on FB, faster to get a response. It is certain more people will see a user's issue on FB from what I understand, whether they are users of a particular software or not.

Thank you for replicating your response here.

Hi Mike,

speaking personally: I never used Facebook. My sons do, my wife too. Then come Quarks Usergroup on Facebook, now its the only one i daily read (other Groups costs to many Time with to low Learning).

I also read this Forum, but Facebook (or Plus, but there are less Posts) is more like Chat.

Generally speaking, it's a learning source. If you're interested to learn you can browse the posts and comments. There are a lot of problems which were never posted in this forum.
Of course, there is no obligation, It is just an opportunity.
Every day is a good day to learn something new.

Well, I find the idea of my every breath on FB being monetized and the actual true lack of privacy (even the appearance of same) not in my best interest.

But hey, it's a two-way street. People who do not desire to utilize the forum don't get the benefit of my input nor help. ;^)
