Access OpenType Font Features

OpenType fonts (.otf) often have special features, such as swashes and alternate characters, that are accessible in any app that uses the OS X font panel, including Pages and TextEdit. To access them, type and select your text, press Command-T to open the font panel, and then choose Typography from the Actions pop-up menu. That shows the Typography panel, where you can toggle available options for the font and characters you've selected.

I have iBoos Author 1.0 installed on a Mac running 10.7.3. I am trying to deliver an .ibook file to iTunes but error says I need Author 1.1 but I have not been able to upgrade to i.1 because when I try to download 1.1 I'm kicked back to i.o and the "Install" button is greyed out and changed to "Installed" Wazzup?
