Oh, I'm intrigued. And also a little worried. I love Scr. and would hate to see it change too much. Or have a whole lot more features. It pushes my little iBook to its limit as it is.

Forgive a nervous, but loyal, Scr. user. It's by far the major program I use for my whole life! (nothing grandiose about that statement).

It's not going to be radically different, don't worry. It's more of a refinement release. I'm fixing all the things I was never happy with - cluttered preferences pane, cluttered Compile Draft, clumsy Find Highlight/Find Annotation panels and suchlike. The corkboard is more flexible and there is the option of a page layout mode for scriptwriters, but mainly it is just a big refinement rather than a big change.
Best,
Keith

I'm sort of regretting talking about the future update as I get asked this question every day now. :) The time frame, as always, is that it will be ready when it is right and I am happy with it. There's a long way to go yet, so we're talking Autumn at the very earliest, possibly Winter or later.
Best,
Keith

Snort feels the same about a specific answer she gave once. The question was a bit different though.

Will you take this man....

Her dad may have been right. She never should have answered that one.

Keith, I would like a connection between my Scrivener and all my other gadgets at home (TV, refrigirator, etc.) that would make it possible for everything in my houste to start beeping when it becomes obvious that I haven't written enough that day. Possible? And as you're into that, could you make it possible for Scrivener to shut down every other electronic device at home (phone, desktop computer, door bell etc.) automatically between say 22:00 and 00:00? (Scrivener should decide which hours are most write-worthy based on the temperature, the humidity, the position of the sun etc.) I hope I'm not being a burden.

Anyway even without these (which I'm sure would make Scrivener a much more powerfull tool) I want to thank you again for having developed this wonderfull program. It's truely a masterpiece.
