I was keenly waiting for the Export to PDF but, perversely, the export directly to JPEG that Martin *has* added mostly satisfied me. I realised that I just wanted a widely-readable, compact output.

Now this is not the ideal, vector output that PDF represents but it suffices for my needs. In the future, of course, we may get PDF through another route (RiScript).

So, hands up those who would be keen for Martin to add some new and fancy graphic effects to AW instead. I think it might be time for some flashy front-end things instead of good solid "back end" engineering.

For those who have not looked closely at AW lately, it has evolved a lot in AW2 form. Martin has added a number of very useful facilities, like very flexible text block handling (not to mention transparency) and fixed a *lot* of bugs. It's not cheap but it's a very serious tool that produces high quality output.
