YEAHH!!!! Can't wait! Nisus is one of the few software that I actually have legally installed in my computer (i.e. not pirated). And, as a loyal follower of the mighty Nisus, I will definitely buy the upgrade when it comes out.We have been silent over the last year or so. Our last update to Pro was a little over a year ago. However, that doesn't mean we haven't been working. On the contrary, we have been working very hard. Unlike other companies (looking at you, Microsoft), we don't like to announce anything until we know we can deliver. We know this upsets people at times but we would rather not say anything until we can back up what we promise.
So having said all of that, I can say a few things about what we have been working on. I have to be careful what I say here, as I am being watched and if I reveal too much will receive a beating and a stern talking to. I fear the talk!
Anyway, this update, which will be called Nisus Writer Pro 2, is a big one. We have worked hard on a couple of huge features: track changes and a suite of drawing tools (shapes, lines, floating text boxes). Those features alone took a great deal of time. There are other features, but those two are the ones I can talk about for the moment. We will announce the other features when we release, which should be in the next few weeks. Hopefully sooner.
The other issue I would like to mention is that Nisus Writer Pro 2 will be a paid upgrade. The price will be $49 to download the upgrade, and a CD version will be available for an extra $10 plus shipping. The full version is $79. There will also be a family pack and academic pricing.
So that's the update for now. More after we finalize everything and are ready to release.
Thanks for including Track Changes!
