Have you guys thought about making a version that works on the Amazon Kindle? It would be great.

We'll keep this idea under consideration. Right now, the process to convert the publishing engine to create a file the Kindle can easily read is something that isn't happening at this time.

Do some Google searches and you'll find plenty of discussion about reading PDF files on a Kindle. One such forum posting I found claims that improved PDF support is forthcoming.
