We have written about WriteRoom before and were impressed with its simple idea. Today WriteRoom 2.0 beta has been released and it brings with it a number of changes. The first change you might notice is that WriteRoom is no longer free. It is now shareware with the price tag of $14.95 while in beta with the idea that'll be more when it is fully functional (even though it is in beta. When did it become cool to charge for beta software?). Also new in 2 beta is support for rich text editing, live word count, the ability to save documents where ever you would like, and WriteRoom now stores documents in standard text/rich text format.
