Nisus Software Inc. has released a public beta version of Nisus Writer Express 2.5, a word processor for Mac OS X that will be released in its final version later this year for US$69. It’ll be a free upgrade for existing users.
New features in the public beta version include right to left character input (helpful for users who prefer to use languages like Arabic and Hebrew, for example). Bullets and numbering have been added to this version, as have many bug fixes and enhancements, according to the developer.
Also new in this release is support for LinkBank, an open source framework for Mac OS X that helps developers integrate content from other applications into their own.
System Requirements call for a G3 or better and Mac OS X v10.3 or later.
