I have been quiet the last couple of weeks. I went to the Apple WWDC and as you know Apple announced the iPhone 4 and the release of iOS4 this coming week. I have been also catching up with all the work stuff I missed while at the conference. The conference was great, and I met a lot of great people. I also learned a lot about what is coming in 4 and more significantly about some of the things I’ve been doing incorrectly in Auteureist. Not horible things but inefficient things.
Having said that, and with 4 this week, it doesn’t make sense for me to rush 1.3 because it doesn’t take advantage of all the great 4 features. So I am going to hold off on 1.3 until I can fix some of the things I now know how to do better and to give me time to add in some 4 features to make life better for all of you getting either the 4 OS or phone. That’s the bad news. The good news is that Auteureist will be more polished, stable, responsive and powerful. Additionally, I want to add the ability to import FinalDraft documents, right now Auteureist only exports. iOS4 makes importing a lot easier. This will be available as part of Scriptwriting Mode.
So, the next release will be a BIG release. It, therefore, won’t be 1.3 but 2.0. And the iPad version will be out at the same time. When? I can’t say at this point. I have a lot of work to do.
I hope your patience will be rewarded.
