See the readability help page for full details.
A new rule for finding passive sentences (use of passive voice) has been added to the problem finder. Note: due to the complexities of the English language and the rather fluid definition of passive voice only a subset of instances may be found via this rule.
Since the full screen mode hogs the available space and can block the task bar a clock has been added to the header.
Just like for warm-ups you can now specify a time and/or word count in full screen mode to track your writing progress.
This is a type of note that has special features, you can select a section of the text and then use the special menu item (accessible via the chapter right click menu or the new object menu) to create the note. When you then view the note, the associated text will be selected in the chapter.
The old, chapter only inline find was too restrictive and not useful for finding all references to a word or name. A new global find has been added to allow searching across (nearly) all of the text in your project. Note: the inline chapter find has been removed.
