Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Since 1997, there have been 3 versions of Q++Studio, the latest one being the XE2/XV4 version.

 

XE2

Standard

Q++Studio XE2

 

This is the current standard version of Q++Studio corresponding to the Basics, Standard, Workstation, and Professional licensing levels.

 

The feature set from 20 years of development and user experience.

Native 32-bit Windows application.

Legacy support for Windows XP and 32-bit operating systems.

Native WoW 64-bit libraries for QuarkXPress 2015 and above.

Support for left-to-right Unicode.

Astronomical calculations library.

Holidays Synchronization module.

Fast access to data and scripts over slow local networks.

Reports on data used by Scripts and unused data.

Support for QuarkXPress versions 4-5-6-7-8-9 on Windows XP.

Support for QuarkXPress versions 8-9-10-2015-2016-2017 on Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10.

Support for Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10 on the client side.

Support for Windows 2012 Server on the server side.

 

A separate XV4 version of Q++Studio now exists to cover Client/Server and Enterprise level licenses and user requirements.

 

Unicode

The first Unicode version of Q++Studio, released in December 2007.

If Q++Studio was installed at your site between June 2008 and December 2013, then this is the version that you are running.

Support for Unicode (but not right-to-left scripts such as Arabic)

Uses a real client/server database which means that the number of concurrent users of the system is only limited by hardware and network speed.

Optimized for remote access via the internet (also means better performance on slow local networks).

Support for QuarkXPress versions 4-5-6-7-8-9 on Windows XP.

Support for QuarkXPress versions 8-9-10 on Windows 7 SP1.

Support for Windows XP and Windows 7 on the client side and Windows 2008 Server R2 on the server side.

Support for this version of Q++Studio ended on December 31, 2015.

ANSI

This is the legacy version of Q++Studio, released in January 1997.

If Q++Studio was installed at your site before June 2008, then this is the version that you are running.

Uses a file-based set of data tables which means that the number of concurrent users of the system should be 5 or fewer, and that it needs a fast LAN connection (no remote connection via the internet).

No support for Unicode.

Needs Windows XP SP3 (will not function with any later versions of Windows, such as Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, etc...).

The ANSI version of Q++Studio is still being updated with the bug fixes and new features that are applicable (ie. excluding Unicode, Arabic, remote access, ...).

Support for QuarkXPress versions 3 to 9 (QuarkXPress version 10 will only run on Windows 7 and 8 and therefore will not be accessible from the ANSI version of Q++Studio).

Support for the ANSI version of Q++Studio ended on December 31, 2014.
