Hi all,

Scrivener for Windows is now available for pre-order, with a 10% discount. We are pushing the official 1.0 release back until next week, 7th November, and the discount will run until then. (If you have any other coupon codes, they will work on top of the 10% discount, too.)

The Windows pre-orders page is now up and running here:

http://www.literatureandlatte.com/scriv ... atform=win

I know, today was supposed to be the release date, but at the very last minute we just felt we had to take a few extra days to fix some of the issues raised in the latest beta - please see my blog post for more information here:

http://www.literatureandlatte.com/blog/?p=226

Thanks everyone for your support, and our sincere apologies for the extra few days' delay; hopefully the preorder will go some way to making up for that, and that you will all think it is worth it. (And remember, if you are worried about the current 7th November beta expiry date, we have a NaNoWriMo trial version that runs up until 7th December available here: http://www.literatureandlatte.com/nanowrimo.php )

Thanks and all the best,
Keith

I also just pre-ordered. It's a pleasure dealing with Literature and Latte, an ethical company that takes pride in creating a quality product. Can't beat a combination like that!

Holidays! I had to look that one up in the dictionary. Interesting concept. It does roll off the tongue nicely though.

Woot! Hrm. Pre-order release party on the 7th? Google+ hangout?

I have to say this was probably one of the smoothest betas I've ever participated in, although it might not seem like it to the people behind the scenes. It's really a credit to the program, the people who coded both versions, and everyone else how well L&L had their crap together with it.

Now you *have* to carry on to actually releasing it. Ha! :twisted:

Ditto!

Ever sine it was released in public beta I have been producing content with it.

I just preordered but I was wondering about upgrades. What will happen as the product is improved? At what point will I have to pay for a newer version?

Timetables haven't really been decided upon yet. The basic rule of thumb is that a licence covers you for the life of the major point number. So for all of 1.x you'll be good, but there will be a modest upgrade fee when it jumps to 2.x. Again, timing is something that is totally up in the air, so I can't say how long that will be.
