Of course, this version has all of the best features found in previous versions like the ability to preview images on screen and interactively build custom filters to correct file problems. It also adds many new features like a built in automatic color server mode for unattended automatic file processing, and our revolutionary ‘ACE’ database job handling and tracking architecture. We have listened to our customers and believe we are delivering the product they have been waiting for."
