An update on WordPerfect's support of the ST version of their word
processor:
 
Seems the version due out this summer is an _interim_ release, mainly
a set of enhancements to the current version, along with some new
printer drivers (included _very_ enhanced Postscript/Ultrascript support)
 
A _new_ version of WP for the ST is currently being written. It will
not be a 5.x version, but it should bring ST WP up to _at least_ the
IBM 4.2 level...
 
It's nice to see the _only_ major software house to ever support the
ST continue to do so even in these trying times for ST owners. (and no,
I don't count Microsoft Write as a genuine effort to support the ST -
perhaps it was an effort to deep-six the ST, but it sure wasn't a
genuine effort to 'break-in' to the ST market...)
