To answer the question about TexWriters future. It will hopefully  
become a commercial product. I am hoping to make it good enough that  
people wouldn't mind paying for it. That said I'm not trying to fool  
people to help me find bugs and then run with their money. I can  
understand the concern and I will make it more clear on the homepage  
that it's only free during the beta period.

Regarding the featureset. The 1.0 will include a minimum feature set.  
TexWriters core needs to be stable before I will add features to it.  
The outlineview showing the entire document is possible because of how  
I structure the data in the application and this needs to be proven  

And I don't think it will ever be able to compete with TexShop on  
features. I want to make a slick application for writing latex files  
and handling the boring things, like bibliographies in a way that  
gives the user a good experience. I want it to be focused on doing a  
few thing very well. It's my first thing and maybe it'll turn out to  
be a complete failure - who knows. There's a lot of work in it already  
and I will continue supporting it. So please bare with the lack of  
features right now.

Regarding the fact that i crashes on startup - that is just weird.  
I'll look into it...
