Apple Updates iWork for iOS and OS X

Among the changes:

  • Open Pages ’08 and ’06 documents

It’s well past time to banish the “document cannot be opened because it is too old” nightmare.

  • Enhanced support for OpenType font features like small caps, contextual fractions, alternative glyphs and more

There are “finally”s, and there are “finally”s — this is the latter. Pages, which is ostensibly Apple’s flagship word processor and page layout tool, now has similar typographic capabilities to the built-in default TextEdit. It remains impossible to add mirrored page numbers, though.
