Happy 2016! We are excited to start the year off with a new software update. This release continues to expand our content automation offering with a focus on usability, performance, and quality.

The February release includes new features and enhancements building on our last release in October 2015. Many of these features and enhancements are an example of our continued responsiveness to customers as we add value to the overall content automation solution.

Below is a summary of the new features and enhancements; we hope you enjoy the many benefits it delivers.


Quark XML Author

Usability enhancements
  • Improved table editing performance – working with structured tables is easier with improved performance for inserting or removing rows and columns, aligning text, making selections, adjusting columns, cut/copy/paste and other table operations
  • Faster keystroke response – end users will notice a marked performance improvement in the rendering of typed characters in the authoring canvas, with performance approaching the native MS Word experience but with the added benefit of componentized content
  • Increased speed when opening or saving documents – documents made from multiple server-based components now open and save in seconds, a 1500% improvement in some cases
Infrastructure upgrades
  • .NET upgrade – the dependency for .NET 3.5.1 has been removed, enabling the latest features and fixes; this requires any 3.5 level custom EIs to be recompiled with .NET Framework 4.5.1
