Quark Inc’s chief technology officer Tim Gill told attendees at the Seybold Publishing show in Boston yesterday that QuarkXpress 5 might ship this year. The new release, which will show up initially in a beta version this year, will include increased web support, and improved support for Adobe’s Portable Document Format said Gill, whose keynote at the show followed an aggressive pitch by Adobe Systems Inc, which previewed its InDesign Quark-killer professional publishing application during the keynote on Wednesday. Gill also demonstrated Quark’s long-promised QuarkDMS digital media system which tracks electronic media assets and runs on Sun Solaris and Windows NT, in conjunction with Oracle Corp and SQL databases, and TCP/IP communications. QuarkDMS has been developed in conjunction with Sun Microsystems Inc. The final product is due within the next four months. But Gill mostly appeared to avoid Adobe’s direct challenge, by demonstrating future new vertical market products including a package design product called Wrapture, and e- commerce catalog management and tracking applications codenamed Cypress and Mirim.
