Quark has released QuarkXPress 7.02, offering a selection of new features, including the ability to authorise machines from within the application.

The release also offers typographic support for new languages as well as resolution of some reported bugs. European users can download the update here.

The new License Transfer function lets users deactivate and activate the software without relying on external resources, so users can choose which Mac to have XPress active on without calling Quark tech support.

The new licence agreement also allows customers to run previous versions of QuarkXPress in parallel to QuarkXPress 7 on the same machine.

The QuarkXPress 7.02 update introduces hyphenation and spell-check capabilities for various languages (Polish, Greek, Croatian, Finnish, Portuguese European, Portuguese Brazilian, Russian, Turkish, Catalan, and Slovak) and hyphenation support for Hungarian.

“Quark is constantly seeking to improve our software,” said Jürgen Kurz, Quark senior vice president of Desktop Publishing Products. “We are committed to providing our customers with the utmost quality and up-to-date features.”

A fully functional 30-day evaluation version of QuarkXPress 7, including the new Universal release for Intel based Macs, is available for download.
