SmartEdit version 6 has been released. This release contains fixes to all the issues raised by users of the beta version over the past week and is now available for download from the new SmartEdit website.
A full list of the version 6 changes is on the Change Log page.
As part of this release we’ve moved and redesigned the SmartEdit website. The move took place three hours ago and may not have propogated to your part of the world yet. If you’re still seeing the old website or encounter any security errors, give it a few hours and come back later.
You can download version 6 from the new Download page here.
I’ve written a couple of blog posts that should be read by anyone interested in the new version, and in the future plans for SmartEdit.
The SmartEdit for Word Version 6 post outlines the changes in detail, talks about the system requirement changes that may impact some users (no more support for Word 2007, and a minimum Windows version of Windows 7), and details changes to the SmartEdit for Word license.
The SmartEdit Future Development post outlines the plan for SmartEdit over the next few months and is a must read for anyone using the stand-alone version of SmartEdit — soon to be deprecated. Atomic Scribbler users may also find this post interesting.
Version 6 is a big improvement to the application. I’ve been finding it so much easier to use myself and I hope you do too.
