SCRIVENER FOR WINDOWS has a Hot Fix that squashes a bug in compiling empty tables of contents in e-books. This was the biggest headache I had with the program.

After many months of beta testing, Scrivener for Windows version appeared as a free update to my Windows laptop. Besides fixing the empty TOC problem, it also runs faster, imports my podcast listening lists (and other OPML files), imports/exports Mind maps in freemind .mm format, exports CSV files and does other things that help keep projects ticking to completion.

I am trying to run Scrivener with creative multimedia students as they manage functional Scrivener Projects. It's helpful to see Scrivener printing index cards, outliners, and that project presets extend all the way to the Compile dialog.

Students will save several hours in practical sessions because it is now impossible to delete Scrivener project files within the directory of an open Scrivener project. I also like the added ability to see submenus and to sort snapshots.

As e-books become more of my semesterised work process, it's good to see Scrivener handling CSS support throughout the editing process. And it's also nice to know that Windows 8 won't reject Scrivener since the program is Windows 8 compliant.

Over in the Scrivener forum, I read about continuing progress with Scrivener for Android. It would be an excellent addition to our Nexus library of applications.

Bernie Goldbach teaches Scrivener in the creative multimedia degree programme at the Limerick Institute of Technology.
