: Quark Tones Enterprise Offerings"> XPress is not the only Quark software getting an upgrade. A forthcoming version of DMS will add many new modules to take it from being a content management tool that spans many industries to being one specifically for publishing markets. For example, a new Editorial Client will facilitate the production of advertisements in newspapers. Another module will let publishing professionals see what rights they have for particular pieces of media, such as a photo, they import into a published work."Whats happening with Quark DMS is it is becoming a platform for enterprise publishing which includes internal corporate publishing, marketing, advertising [and] Web publishing," Turpin said. Turpin would not say when the DMS upgrade would be available. The Quark Dynamic Document Server, a new application that formerly had been referred to as the Quark Active Publishing Server and due late this year, brings the power of QuarkXPress to the server, Turpin said. It allows a publisher to create document templates, then provide employees or partners access to some aspects of the template while locking down other features. "You gain greater control over the representation of your documents, but you get more flexibility in creating them," Turpin said. At the same time, Quark is consolidating its development, moving much of its German development to India, although officials said they will keep some developers in Quarks Denver headquarters.
