Extensis has released Universal Type Server 1.0.1. This free update includes key performance enhancements and additional font auto-activation plug-ins and is recommended by the company for all Universal Type Server users (Macintosh and Windows).

The new auto-activation plug-ins, included in the update, work with the Macintosh Client and support: Adobe Illustrator CS2, Adobe InDesign CS2, QuarkXPress 8.

The update also includes the latest versions of existing plug-ins for Adobe Illustrator CS3 and InDesign CS3 and QuarkXPress 7 that are optimized for Universal Type Server 1.0.1 (for Macintosh and Windows).

Plug-in based auto-activation ensures that only the exact fonts used in a document are activated. This eliminates font conflicts and silent substitutions that can lead to costly errors and downtime.
