Enfocus ensures support for GWG 2022 specifications and newest operating systems with the release of PitStop 2022 update 1

Gent, Belgium [25 November 2021], Enfocus, the leader in PDF quality control, advanced PDF editing and workflow automation for the graphic arts industry announces the release of PitStop 2021 update 1.

This updates ensures that PitStop users can happily upgrade their mac to MacOS 13 (Ventura).

The 2022 update 1 release also provides support for the GWG 2022 specifications support. The last major GWG specification was released in 2015. Since then, separate efforts took place for specific market segments such as Sign & Display, Digital Print and Packaging, but there was no real consolidation into the base specification. This made it more difficult to use the specification and more difficult for the Ghent Workgroup to evolve it. The GWG 2022 specification changes that by introducing new innovations on a new, streamlined, specification format. More information about the GWG specifications can be found on their website:

"We are proud to support the GWG 2022 specifications. As a founding member of the GWG, we want to keep up-to-date with the most recent specifications, and now with the new checks for GWG 2022 specifications, PitStop is fully compliant."

Steven Nuyt, Head of Product, Enfocus
