software OS4   software OS4 : Cinnamon Writer v. 0.80 is ready for download
   posted by Desler on 13-Mar-2012 10:03:32 (2882 reads)
It is a pleasure to announce that version 0.80 of Cinnamon Writer is available for download at desler.be or at OS4Depot.net

Get the new version here

Cinnamon Writer is a compact and efficient word processor developed especially with Amiga and Amiga-like systems in mind. CW have all of the basic functionality expected of a modern word processor. This includes changeable layout style, support of anti-aliased truetype fonts, infinite "intelligent" Undo/Redo history, user defined page setup and file compatibility with other word processors as Word and OpenOffice that can use RTF or DocX files.

Cool!
Is there a chance for another AROS-version?

In the works. Basically CW on AROS compiles and then hard-crashes upon startup without me being able to see where the crash is. I will try to compile again on the new AROS distribution ASAP. It is a clear goal for me to support AROS (and MorphOS)

Thanks! If you need a beta tester for AROS, let me know.

That's good news Desler.

Looking forward to trying it on my Icaros 1.4 machine.

Excellent, thanks for your work Desler! I'll give it a whirl when I get home.

I'm delighted that the interface is becoming more "Amiga-like" as it's something I found a little jarring in previous releases, being a heavy user of right-click menus and shortcuts myself... Keep up the good work!

Really nice work & progress.

A couple of comments though:
- I cannot type in greek (I suppose the codepages are not fully supported).
- I cannot copy from Cinnamon Writer & Paste to other app running (not the same clipboard?).

Looking forward to seeing an OpenOffice clone or even better

Thanks for the release and your hard work. I ll have to try it on my peg2. How good is the formating support of DOCX documents?

Thanks for working on this important project! As money speaks louder than words, I've donated 20 EUR.

@Cass
Clipboard support is certainly something that is high on the priority list, so are the problem with codepages.

@Realize
DocX support covers all functionality of CW. So whenever a new feature is added to CW the corresponding compatibility is added to the DocX import / export

@Trixie
Thank you for the donation. This project relies on two things: Peoples feedback and donations. While feedback gives me an idea of where to take the project and what people would like to have changed, donations allows me to run the homepage, allows me to invest in software to develop CW with and hopefully in the future enough to fund other developers writing code for CW or other projects in the future

@AROS and MorphOS users
Im very honored by your interest in this project. Porting is in progress. There are however some problems: I had problems bug hunting on AROS and I do not have access to a MorphOS machine, so please have patience

Do you plan to add Unicode support to CW in the near future ?

Currently I can't type Turkish (ISO-8859-9) letters in CW..

@Desler

Like the new right click menus, feels more natural to use now.

The new version seems a lot more stable. I tried loading various docx files, however CW crashed on one I tried with lots of tables and text boxes.

Looking forward to improved PDF export, would be nice to produce future versions of 'Get the most out of your Amiga' with CW.

Installed on my SAM440ep-M9-667Mhz, works nicely.
Thanks!

Very important application for Amigas.
I prefer native Amiga applications over 68k ones or ported apps etc...

@SinanG
I will look into codepages. Didn't know that this problem existed. Which characters proves to be problematic?

@KimmoK
Im so glad to hear. How is the speed? I know I need to make optimizations for the hypothetical laptop, but it would be nice if the program as it is now is usable on a machine specced like yours :)

Hi Desler,
I really like the program so far, although on my micro Cinnamom gives the grimreaper, when i use the 'smart' arrow-button selection of font size, otherwise thanks for a nice program

If you use "-g" flag for both compiling and linking and then run the app in a debug build of AROS hosted under Linux (or send your app to someone who has this version of AROS) then you can get a detailed backtrace like this after a crash:

Hey dont really know what that means? Can you elaborate? My question is does the page and text formating get screwed up when importing DOCx files? Is it as good as say Libre Office (ooo.org) Thanks

@Realize

I think he means that currently it works the other way, a document created in cinamon would open correctly in word or whatever, but a more complex document from word will likely not open right just yet.
