RIJSWIJK, The Netherlands ­ 27 March 2007 — Markzware, preflighting, and data conversion software leader, releases today, as a preview of Markzware’s patented world preflighting standard, the public beta of FlightCheck v6 with QuarkXPress 7.

Markzware’s CEO, Patrick Marchese states, "Many print and publishing workflows use and depend on FlightCheck as their comprehensive preflight solution for quality control. The FlightCheck 6 beta for the Macintosh has been issued to key accounts for testing since last November. We have found their comments very helpful. This public beta signifies that Markzware is very close to a release. We expect to ship in early to mid-April and welcome any comments and suggestions."

Markzware is delivering a widely available FlightCheck beta to allow customers an early chance to preview and test another great Markzware release.
