Current version

GOWrite 2 2.3.44 is available now. The 2.3 versions add new features and offers improvements to publication work. Version offers all GOWrite 1.4 features and includes also lots of new features.
Sometimes development versions are available, see download page for current status. Development version contains features and bug fixes not present in stable version, but it has not been completely tested, and may fail in unexpected ways.
If you find any problems in either version, please let me know.

Version in your own language?

GOWrite is localized for few languages. If your language is missing, you could create it! Creating new localization is not so difficult, everything needed is included in normal GOWrite installation. Also improving partial translation is easy.

GOWrite 2 Requirements

In order to work reasonably, GOwrite 2 2.3 requires at least following:

Registration

GOWrite 2 is freeware. If you want to support GOWrite work, feel free send me some go-related material, preferably something you have made yourself.
If you create materal using GOWrite, please send me a copy (or link) if possible. This way I know how GOWrite is actually used.

If you have any problems or any other license needs, please see GOWrite contacts.

Distributing GOWrite

If you want to combine GOWrite 2 with something else (for example to include it into CD), please let me know. Knowing the version in CD helps me if people having the CD ask for help.
