You probably had the 0.9 version. The 1.0 version is the first non-free version, and has been released this very month :)) .

The only problem with vertical script is that it's nearly impossible in simple text editors to mix it with horizontal script. Even big word processors like Word don't really handle vertical scripts together with horizontal scripts. There are editors for vertical scripts, or editors that can have both directions, but never for the same file. Christophe. Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
