Avenir becomes StoryMill

Writing software specialist Mariner has announced that its defunct novel creation program, Avenir, will return to the company's product lineup under a new name and version, as StoryMill 3.0. The program combines a word processor, a database and a timeline feature, allowing authors to keep track of all the information needed to properly structure and write a novel. It will for instance tag, track and filter a variety of characters, scenes and locations, ensuring that details are consistent and non-contradictory. For novice writers, the program helps steer through multi-level writing techniques.

StoryMill is expected to go on sale in January of 2008, at a cost of $50. English, French and German versions will accompany the launch, but more are expected to follow soon thereafter. Mac OS X 10.4 or higher will be required.
