Important Information about Stanza for Windows

This is the first beta release of Stanza for Windows. There are a number of features that are not yet implemented and there are some areas where Stanza is rough around the edges. Please be patient and understanding with us as we work to improve our Windows support.

Specifically, the following known issues exist:

    * Copying to the clipboard does not yet work.
    * Exporting to an Audio Book is not supported.
    * Only one layout (vertical) is currently available.

The development of Stanza for iPod seems to be far ahead of the desktop version. However, if this is a "rough beta version", then I really expect a lot from the finished version!
