PDF support means export only or is there also an import function?


Export only for the forseeable future.

I'm also ready to pay for a native OS4 version. Terminalhills, any ETA at all for it? Do you need beta testers?


Expect the OS4 version within a few months of the 68K version being finished.

I'd be willing to pay 50 for an OS4native version with .Doc support.



Sadly do not expect .doc support in this version. I would say there's a possibility in a future version though.

I am afraid the subscription model won't work on the Amiga platform unless the software is so good that you can use it daily and profesionally. Otherwise paying a regular subscription fee can hardly be justified.

IMHO a more viable model is paid updates, where the price of the update is kept at a reasonable level.



I personally wouldn't feel right about a subscription model in the Amiga community.

Out of curiosity: is the PDF support achieved using Haru, or Poppler?


haru as it's more integrated.

Is anyone interested in a current release without the updated spell checker while it's being worked on? I'm just gauging interest currently.

@Samurai

AOS3, AROS all platforms, AOS4 and MorphOS.

AROS will be the initial supported platform. However, I am hoping the AOS4 and MorphOS versions will follow quickly.

Thanks for the prompt reply. I'd love to check the 68k version, when it will be available though.

I am interested in trying a current release. Either 68K or OS4 would be fine. I have been using Final Writer 97 for many years, originally on my A2000HD, then later on my OS4 system.

current release
means what? A useable FW97 Version on par with the "old" FW97 68k Version - without spell checker?

If though, YES YES YES!!!! What will be the timeframe for release? sub 6 months or more than a year up to three years?
What will be the timeframe for OS4 Version? That is actually the one I am after. However I would also setup AROS just in order to try FW97....

"Budgetframe" for current AROS Version would be 40. For OS4 Version I would pay 120 - if you do a business licensing model I would pay a bit more.

Is this a rhetorical question? Of course! I'll be a guinea pig.

Some people might even buy it without a spell checker.

BTW.:
As far as I remember, the spell checker (and the part that does the hyphenation) where a 3rd party part. so they can't be ported from the existing source.

So a spell checker (for different languages) might be a project that will continue during the software maintenance and development in the years after the initial release of this software.

There is a lot to do and even a release with all the features from the old FinalWriter is only a first step.

Only the spell checker and thesaurus. The hyphenation is included.

@terminills

the amiga market is not flooded with new word processing applications ;) so yes I think people would buy it even without spell checker
