Talers 1.0 - End of beta
Talers 1.0 is available 🎉
This is it. After more than a year of design, development, thinking about the financial model, and fixing bugs, the official version of Talers is here!
We hope you enjoy the software as it exists today, and that you will continue to love it as it evolves. We want to push the boundaries of what makes a good writing application, one that you want to use and feel good about.
This involves big ideas, but also small details. The details take a lot of time and often go unnoticed; but they are what make the difference.
What's new in version 1.0?
You can now export your project to PDF. A number of options are available to customize your PDF file. We will add new ones in the next versions, like footnotes.
Your custom styles will appear in the generated PDF.
We've also applied a set of graphical improvements throughout the software 💅
the spacing between text titles is slightly larger,
when a text file is opened, the scroll bar is displayed correctly for all browsers (it could be truncated at the top and bottom),
after the dashboard, it was the turn of the overview to go through a makeover. More elegant and ergonomic, it also displays the statistics of your project.
Finally, the interface language selection bug has been fixed. For the moment, Talers offers an interface in English and French. It was possible to change the interface language in the account options, but this could be ignored.

End of the free version
Until now, Talers was completely free to use. With the official release, some features will be disabled after writing or generating 30,000 characters or more. You can find more information on our pricing page.
Plans for the future
Version 1.1 will focus on the following:
Stability. Improve the stability of existing features. Allow the proofreader to handle very long texts by splitting the text into parts sent separately.
Ergonomics. Make Talers fully keyboard navigable. Improve the floating menu system to manage text style and switch to something simpler.
Collaboration. Give the possibility to share a project and work on it with others. This is one of the features we are looking forward to the most!
And many other surprises!
Happy writing ✨
