Nisus Software has released Nisus Writer Express 3.4, a major upgrade to its “light” (compared to Nisus Writer Pro) word processor for Mac OS X. The new version of the software includes literally hundreds of improvements and bug fixes, anchored by support for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion’s new full-screen mode. Highlights include better handling of images, a large number of new preferences and settings, new text editing and analysis features, and many improved user interface components. Other areas of improvement include file format handling, styles, spelling and autocorrection, image manipulation, lists, tables, find and replace, footnotes and endnotes, and a large number of performance improvements and bug fixes.
