Yep, the price is back to $49. However, check the link from time to time. I think that it is not the first time they sell TextMaker at a discount. So, they may do it in the future.

Yup. The sale is over for now. I will let you know when/if there is another sale.

Oh, by the way, I've heard that Softmaker is working on a complete rewrite of the Textmaker. Hopefully, Zaurus is included. I also hope that it will be even better.

yes keep me informed. I'm very much interested

This is the most frustrating thing I've ever seen. I put it in my cart, it shows up, then when I go to check out, my cart is empty. What's going on with this?

After you have paid, Softmaker will email you direct with the links and id for the software.

For the impatient be warned, it took about 12 hours in my case.

Here is what I have received today from TheKompany:

"As you probably know, we've been reselling the TextMaker
word processor on the Zaurus for a while now at a very low
price of just $24.95. Starting on April 15 we are going to
have to increase that price to $39.95. TextMaker is by far
the best word processor going on the Zaurus. You can check
it out, get a free demo and order from
http://www.thekompany.com/embedded/textmaker/"


I wonder if this is an indication that a new version of textmaker for zaurus is in the works.

It is. If you study the website carefully there is a hint that upgrading to Textmaker 2006 for Zaurus will be 34.00 Euro or, if you purchased the last version after 2005-07-01, 10 Euro.

See this page:
http://www.softmaker.com/english/tmq_en.htm

Quoting:
"Special price until TextMaker 2006 is released. You can then upgrade to TextMaker 2006 for Windows for only EUR 10 or US$ 10, respectively.

Customers who purchased TextMaker before July 1, 2005 can upgrade to TextMaker 2006 for only EUR 34.95 (Europe) or US$ 34.95 (outside Europe)."

I hope they do reliease a new version for the Zaurus. The 2006 version for Windows has full unicode support. It would be really nice to have that in Textmaker.

In Jan 2006 I searched Ebay for Textmaker and found the Linux version direct download from Textmaker themselves starting at $4.95. I ended up winning the auction for just $4.95, and when I requested the Zaurus .ipk version they obligingly sent me that.
It works fine of course, but I can only get it to instal/run from internal memory, not a SD card.

I bought textmaker for linux x86 and asked them if they would do a deal for the zaurus textmaker version and they said no :-(

Too bad. In my case they actually emailed links and codes for both the Desktop AND later the Zaurus version when I asked. Have forgotten who I asked.
speculatrix
if you could find out, I'd be very grateful! I actually wanted textmaker more for my Z than for x86 (where I can run OO for the occasions I want it), and was not too happy to discover I'd have to pay nearly full price for Z license :-/ especially when the Z version seems somewhat dated now.
deluxe
If it helps, I communicated with the Textmaker main office, and I emailed a woman there, but I can't recall nor find her name.

I don't see how that is a clue that a "TextMaker for Zaurus 2006" is coming out. These are prices for a TextMaker for Windows/Zaurus bundle, and you'll notice that they only mention upgrading the Windows version.

Given how little support they have given for TextMaker in the last few years and the relatively small user base the Zaurus has, I would be very surprised if they released a new version of TextMaker for the Zaurus. That said, I would almost certainly upgrade if they did do it.

They will do. I talked to them directly a week ago and they said they definitely will. But they didn't say when. From my experience with Softmaker I wouldn't expect it to happen before July or so, but probably still this year (otherwise it wouldn't make sense to call it Textmaker 2006).
