One of the most consistent type of changes made in the First Draft text editor is content-based. But since there are two types of content changes, it's important to know what they are and how they can affect your writing. So the following describes them in detail and suggests ways to benefit from them.
First Draft's Content Update
In First Draft, a content update is the result of multiple but minor changes to the way the software constructs and presents its generated content. As mentioned in the "Minor Code Fixes and Content Corrections/Additions" section of the Versioning Method page, this change entails small spelling, grammar, and/or punctuation fixes or additions.
In most cases, a content update is barely noticeable. But downloading and reinstalling First Draft after a content update is still recommended nonetheless. The result only facilitates the writing process even more by reducing time-consuming editing activities.
First Draft's Content Upgrade
A content upgrade indicates a significant amount of content has been added to the software. For that reason alone, downloading and reinstalling a fresh copy of First Draft is required for anyone who wants to experience a brand new set of expressions (phrases, transitions, parts of speech, etc.) while writing.
This type of change is mentioned in the "Minor Function Changes and/or Major Content Additions" section of the Versioning Method page, as well. The end-result allows First Draft to generate even more unique content -- often to the point in which it's hard to tell the difference between the software's output and a human writer's output.
Upgrade Now and Subscribe
At the moment, there are no cute names to describe either one of these changes. So for now, "content update" and "content upgrade" will have to suffice. In the event that there's a common theme among the changes, that will be made known as well. For example, if First Draft gets a significant SAT-based vocabulary boost, that information will accompany the upgrade's description.
With either change, you'll want to make sure your copy of First Draft implements them in all the writing that comes from it. So be sure to (1) download and install a new copy today since chances are it's different from the one you're using now, and (2) sign up for the First Draft newsletter. All content updates and content upgrades (as well as a few other things) are announced through the First Draft newsletter.
