Very nice! The one thing that has bothered me all the years since using a modern Amiga like system, a real amiga with major upgrades and even emulation that has stopped me from even bothering to get word processors and office tool to run well is the lack of modern printing. This is still a problem even today. Is something being done to pair a modern printing solution with a new release of Final Writer?

Tim has been working on Gutenprint for AROS, can't remember if he's doing a MorphOS version as well.

The 68K version was already able to produce output on morphos

Final Writer has had built in PostScript printing (in color) since the 1990's; what "modern printing solution" do you require?

Other than the obvious joke, what is an "office tool?"

Modern as in not emulating HP printers from days past. I havent been able to print from a new printer properly in ages. Its not an easy task to get working and should be made easier.

@danbeaver - I do like that office tool!

Does PostScript emulate old HP printers? PCL now goes up to version 6, but why bother when all [my] modern printers use PS?
