WordRider 0.75

This release fixes a few bugs. Thanks to Agnus, who sent me info yesterday, I was able to identify and locate a serious bug - useless format tags in the output document. It caused the output files to be bigger than they should be... ;-)
Another correction fixes problems with the viewing of the left border(dots indicating a new paragraph) in the text area on JRE 1.5.0_05. More about fixes.
Finally I added a support for new themes in the Substance Look&Feel v2.0(screenshots). It already has more than 15 color themes!
If you are a member of the Sun Developer Network (SDN), you can vote for a bug which I discovered in the latest Java 1.5.0_05 - "JTextPane - Selection for empty lines is not visible". It helps them fix the bug sooner.

Enjoy WordRider 0.75

Hibtext is more stable than Hibview

As Renato Costa informed me, Hibtext viewer(an older version of Hibview) is more stable on V200 or under the AMS 2.08(or newer). I tested and it worked fine.
You can download it from the Hibview's homepage - look for a news item from 18/05/2003.

Upcoming WordRider 0.7

These days I work hard on the new version, which I plan to release in April in May.
What can you look forward to in this version?
Many users will welcome the image importer (inserting bitmaps and converting into 89i) or special dialog for many user settings. From the other functionatilities I can mention - speed up of reading files, allowing only one instance of WordRider, support of new Look&Feels. I also optimized about 30% of the source code and included many little enhancements(based on users' requests).
Be among the first to check these new features out before the final release - be a beta tester! Send an email with a subject "SIGN BETA" and I will contact you as soon as the new beta version will be available for testing.
WordRider is always open for your suggestions in this forum.

Great news! WordRider was reviewed by and it was called like "MS Word for calculator" ;-).

I still look for native speakers - translators to languages such as German, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, Russian... So if you would like to help users in your country, don't hesitate to contact me.
