Cinnamon Writer is a compact and efficient word processor developed especially
with Amiga and Amiga-like systems in mind. CW have all of the basic
functionality expected of a modern word processor. This includes changeable
layout style, support of anti-aliased truetype fonts, infinite "intelligent"
Undo/Redo history, user defined page setup and file compatibility with other
word processors as Word and OpenOffice that can use RTF or DocX files.

New in version 0.801:
- CW misread non-standard color codes for characters when loading a DocX file.
Bug fixed

- Due to a bug CW would crash if loading a DocX file containing lines with no
content. Bug fixed

- Extra feature: CW can now export cut or copied text as unformatted text to the
clipboard to be pasted in other programs. Import from the clipboard does not
work satisfactory yet and has not been enabled in this version

- Optimerization: CW have been optimized to run even faster. Im putting a lot of
effort into getting CW to run smoothly on even low specced Amigas

New in version 0.80:
CW now supports spell checking while you type: I have been able to port a small
and very efficient spell checker and integrate it into CW. As a result, you now
have the possibility to have your document checked for spelling mistakes while
you are working with it. You are able to work with as many different languages
within the same document as you wish. When a miss-spelled word is detected it is
highlighted and, if possible, suggestions for replacement are given. Please read
the supplied manual for usage.
English and German dictionaries are supplied as standard with CW 0.80 and
dictionaries of other languages will be made available from the download section
of Desler.be in the near future. If you have access to a comprehensive list of
words within your language of choice, please send me the list or a link to it at
projects()desler.be. I will build a dictionary file and make it available as
fast as possible. However, please make sure that the licensing of the file
allows distribution. 
If you are a software developer who would like to add spell-checking abilities
to your program, feel free to contact me for the source codes for CW
spell-checker. You are also welcome to use the CW dictionary files for your own
projects as long as you abide to the licenses that may follow a dictionary.
Please contact me at projects()desler.be.

Better integration with AOS: The focus of CW has so far to implement
functionality and not necessarily implement the typical Amiga feel that people
would expect from a project like this. As the feature list is now becoming more
and more comprehensive I will start integrating the small things that make the
program more “amiga” like and ease the daily use. Implemented in this version
are a comprehensive collection of short-cut keys and the introduction of a
right-click menu. This work will continue in future versions of CW

Known Issues / bugs:
The RTF file format is not being developed further. With the introduction of
DOCX support I have decided to out phase RTF support. It is simply too much work
to support different file formats and DOCX is the de facto standard within most
areas. CW also supports load/save of unformatted text

The first time the spell checker needs to spell check a word in a specific
language, it will have to load the corresponding dictionary. As a result there
will be a small lag until the file has been loaded. This lag is dependent on the
size of the dictionary and the speed of your harddrive / system. This is not a
bug. If you find the spell checking to be slowing down CW, you can turn it off.
CW is quite usable on my G4 () 800. But I do not know how it runs on lower
specced machines

Printer / PDF functionality of CW 0.80 has not been improved since the prior
version. Any inconsistencies therefore still exist. This will be improved in a
future version

A lot of work has been put into this version, however bugs may still persist. If
you find a bug and it is not described in "Known problems" in the manual, please
submit it to me at bugs()desler.be. You can also use the new bugtracker, which
you can find here
