Do you guys have some sort of RSS feed so that we could be notified of updates automatically?

Also, could you talk about your plans for Prince 7.0? I've heard it might support Japanese vertical writing… Is there a timeframe that you are aiming at for release?

Thanks and keep up the good work!
We don't have an RSS feed for announcements, although it would make sense. We'll look into it. :)

For Prince 7.0 we're concentrating on OpenType font support and internationalization. There is a roadmap online, scroll down to see what we're planning. In short: kerning, ligatures, proper small-caps, support for Arabic, Urdu, Hebrew, Hindi, and possibly other Indic scripts.

We hadn't planned to support vertical text at this time, but that's mainly because we've had less demand for it than other features. It's something we could look into, and any feedback or suggestions would be appreciated.
