QuarkXPress 2016: All 2015 XTs should work

Discuss third-party XTensions® software for QuarkXPress 2015 and QuarkXPress 2016.
As the API hasn't changed between 2015 & 2016 versions, most XTension running in QuarkXPress 2015 should also work in QuarkXPress 2016.

QuarkXPress 2016: All 2015 XTs should work

Post by Matthias Guenther (Quark) » 03 Mar 2016, 05:18

Hi all,

as you know, we unveiled QuarkXPress 2016 on March 1 and envision it to be released in Q2/2016.

One great thing for everybody using an XTension is that we kept the XTensions interface the same. Meaning, your XTensions that run in QuarkXPress 2015 should run without any changes also in QuarkXPress 2016. Just copy them over.

Exceptions might be where an XTension offers the exact same functionality as the new features in QuarkXPress 2016, however I am not aware of such an XT so far.

And of course if an XTension developer implemented a hard check on major version number, then the XTension will not load. Most XTensions we know do not enforce such a hard check, so should just work.

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