Sydney-based Pongrass Publishing Systems announced recent Australian installations of the Web browser-based version 6 of its news editor and U.S. and Australian sites upgrading to Pongrass Classified Pagination version 7.
Two Victoria papers, The Advertiser, in Bendigo, and Wimmera Mail Times, in Horsham, installed V6 of the browser-based news editor with Adobe InDesign-based editorial pagination, replacing Cybergraphic systems. The Advertiser also implemented the Pongrass Juggler ad-tracking system.
The news editor integrats with the V6 database, requires no local software and can be used in the newsroom or remotely via Internet access, with user preferences stored on the server. Images, captions and notes can be attached to a story, with background uploading available. With the necessary log-in, text and image elements can be assigned directly to a page, with previewing of alread-assigned elements and ads possible.
Taking advantage of new PDF support in Pongrass classified pagination software and upgrading to Version 7 were The Monitor, McAllen, Texas, The Glenn Innes (New South Wales) Examiner, Western Advocate, Bathurst New South Wales, Goondiwindi (New South Wales) Argus, Katherine (Northern Territory) Times and Stock Journal, Adelaide, South Australia.
