Version 4 features rearranged menus... particularly when it comes to USAGE
(fonts, pictures), though they function pretty much the same. Also the
MODIFY, RUNAROUND, FRAME commands can all be accessed through one window.

One major feature which I do like is you can now do gradients directly in
Quark 4. And before... well you could do them in Photoshop and them import
them. But It is a smooth interface and creates very nice effects.

Quark 4 also offers bezier curves, but frankly they handle better in
Illustrator. So I still work in Illustrator and them import them as EPS

Don't care much for the printing interface, though it has gotten better
since the patches have come out.
