REQUEST: If anyone still has versions higher than 1.5 but lower than 2.6.4 of Blaze under possession, please share it with us! We are searching for the last version compatible with Classic Mac OS!

Blaze is a SimpleText replacement word processor that has added features like font scalability and a shortcuts menu. It even supports SimpleText formats, .rtf (Word) and HTML pages. Best of all, it will run on almost everything PowerPC from OS X 10.2 and higher.

It is officially discontinued since 2006. Version 2.6.4 is the last version, released 2006.

The second download is version 1.5 (for Mac OS 8-9), dated 2001. The opening screen in the installer for v. 1.5 implies that it installs v. 1.5.3 for Mac OS X. This is incorrect; it installs v. 1.5 for Classic Mac OS.

A registration code for v. 2.6.4 is:

e-mail: s.box@sbox
Code: 15d8e12a15116cc415d12a15116c

A registration code for v. 1.5 is:

Name: KIRI X
Code: 1169054654028444674

(Not to be confused with the Pac-Man clone of the same name.)

Compatibility
Architecture: PPC PPC (Carbonized)

v. 2.6.4 requires OS X 10.2 at least
v. 1.5 requires Mac OS 8 - 9

Looks like 2.01 was still Carbon Mac OS 8.6 compatible, according to this.

It'd be great to find that and other versions of this. For some reason, the developers at www.koingosw.com seemed to have requested the exclusion of their website from archive.org, which is utterly irritating, as now we can't crawl for their abandonware anymore.

Is v1.5 the latest version for OS 9?

I have added suitable registration details to the page and added v. 1.5

Blaze v2.6.4 requires registering with an email-name & a code, or else this expires in 15 days after installing.
