Quadralay Corp. Releases WebWorks Publisher Version 4.0

Quadralay Corp. this week released the newest version of its WebWorks Publisher for Windows- and Unix-based platforms.

WebWorks Publisher Version 4.0 has many new features, including expanded support for emerging non-HTML online formats, enhanced ease-of-use features, a new intelligent project wizard, along with improved handling of file attributes and hypertext markers.

WebWorks Publisher was designed to be used in conjunction with Adobe's FrameMaker tool. The combination enables companies to create print, online and CD-ROM versions of complex, content-rich documents using only a single master document version.

Many of the emerging online document formats, including Netscape's NetHelp, Microsoft's HTML Help, Sun's JavaHelp and the W3C's XML are now supported by WebWorks Publisher 4.0. Furthermore, the use of project templates enables developers to have the precise control which is required to continually produce electronic versions with confidence.

Quadralay expects the final release to be available in mid-March, while a public beta of WebWorks Publisher 4.0 will be available from the company Web site. Retail price is expected to be $495 for Windows and Macintosh, and $725 for Unix platforms.
