Quark announced a new upgrade policy, effective 7/1/13, where they will only support upgrading from one previous version of QuarkXPress to the current version. QuarkXPress v10 is scheduled to ship in August, and once it ships only v9 will be eligible for a discounted upgrade. Those with QuarkXPress v8 licenses will be required to purchase a v10 license at full price if they wish to use the latest version.
