Current improvements.

Localization: FinalWriter no longer has the languages hard coded in so it's merely a matter of creating catalog files for each language. :)

Clipart: We now support Datatypes.

Fonts: Updated to support Truetype fonts

SpellChecker: Support for OpenOffice,Aspell,hunspell dictionaries(W.I.P.)

File formats: Updated RTF to the final spec, PDF support.

And of course as always I have every intention of supporting all Amiga like OSes.

Great work, as mentioned a native OS4 version we/I would easily pay for. Of course classic version just as valuable(duel licensing/discount) What is slowing down progress by the way, maybe we need a dedicated crowd funding to speed things up?

Just a rough idea of how much code has changed...

A late comer to the thread but I would like to echo some of the previous comments about updating it for 68k machines first. The 68k machines are still very capable and still have a solid user base, I would for sure love an updated word processor for my A1200 - currently using Wordworth 5 I obtained from eBay some time ago. I think given that there has been no up to date word processor released for the classic Amiga for over a decade now, it would be warmly received by the Amiga community. I understand the constraints of catering for all 68k machines, so I think people would understand if the minimum requirement was a 68020 or above.

I would also like to have the software to have some up-to-date features including (obviously) compatibility with the latest version of Microsoft Word files, PDF file handling etc. Not essential but a nice touch would be some modern printer drivers.

Now for the software iteself... I think a floppy version would be nice, or at the very least a downloadable .lha archive. Given these features are implemented and presented professionally I cannot see any reason why any decent Amiga user would not wish to part with 50 for a solid product as a physical release on floppy with a manual, or 35 for a download.

Edit: I see you have already added PDF support and TrueType fonts! Excellent work!

Spud.
