this is an e-mail answer from Softmaker when asked for a port for Zaurus.
It seems that it's nothing to come, yet.

Well, I'll wait biggrin.gif


At this point, we can't promise updated software for Qtopia 1.x at all

We are doing active development for several OEM customers with devices running

Qtopia 2.x and Qtopia 4.x (ROAD's handyPC, www.one2onemate.com and other
unannounced devices) and we expected to easily backport to Qtopia 1.x.

Alas, when we tried that, we had huge problems (for example, SoftMaker Office
is now running in 2 byte Unicode, and the old GCC 2.95 cannot be forced to do
2 byte Unicode; we also had problems with the language support of GCC 2.95 and

in many additional areas).

So, to make a long story short, at this point TextMaker and PlanMaker 2006 for

Zaurus are on hold.

Sorry to have to bring you bad news.
