Some time ago Timothy "Terminills" Deters has announced that he had acquired the rights to text processing software "Final Writer". Meanwhile a programmer seems to start developing further the programm, as the screenshot released by Deters shows:

According to the file name, currenty the programm still runs under the 68k-port of AROS. Ports to AmigaOS 4 and MorphOS have been already announced. According to Deters in discussion, all interested users should expect "more of an evolution than a revolution" concerning the further development of Final Writer. Before a new release, the following improvements are absolutely necessary:
  1. Turboprint support for prints in 24 Bit
  2. RTG-support, currently Final Writer has problems with screens with more than 256 colours
  3. Bug fixes
  4. Working support for the locale.library
Additionally Deters is looking for support concerning the OpenDocument-format, although it is not clear if already in the first version this feature will be implemented. (cg) (Translation: dr)
