I recommend switching to the up-to-date typora package. Linux users can start a trial and keep using it for free according to the FAQ: https://support.typora.io/purchase/#can-i-use-typora-for-free

This package contains the last version of typora that was free.

DO NOT FLAG AS OUT-OF-DATE. It will not be updated since typora is not free anymore on more recent versions.

For an up-to-date package, see typora.

@Chaosmos and @AvidSeeker: No worries, I'll keep this package around, just in case. At least as long as it doesn't take any effort to maintain - which it shouldn't.

Not that it really matters, but as far as I know Typora never really was FOSS. If anyone is looking for a FOSS alternative, maybe give ghostwriter a try: https://ghostwriter.kde.org. The main difference to Typora is that it uses a split preview and doesn't support diagrams yet iirc, but other than that it's quite similar.

For those advocating the removal of this version, they can later disable the "free trial" option just like they jumped from FOSS to a paid model. In fact, since they have already disabled the earlier free versions on another OS, I wouldn't be surprised if they left the "free trial" option here to make the other packages look unnecessary, so they can disable it once there are no other packages left. That is why it is important, among other reasons, that this package remains.

Typora11.18 was the last good version before more bloat was added. It was simple enough. Certainly without the annoying activation prompts. Keep in mind that typora-free is the best package for portability (e.g: public computers), where no activation code is required.

I have nothing against supporting developers, but markdown is so essential that it must have its own FOSS program.

I didn't really need this pack, just found out that the link is out of date so just remind you. I also think this package cloud be removed, after all, the new version of typora is still free to try for linux, and there is nothing wrong with paying to support this software.

Please change URL to: https://download.typora.io/linux/typora_0.11.18_amd64.deb

@aichingm Not the best solution but the deb file was archive on web.archive.org: http://web.archive.org/web/20211127121316/https://typora.io/linux/typora_0.11.18_amd64.deb

The source seams to be down, typora.io does not list download links for pre 1.0.0 versions anymore.

Thanks @Zdrobot, I added gtk3 to the dependencies.

I'm getting this error trying to run typora after installing typora-free: typora: error while loading shared libraries: libatk-bridge-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Update: I have installed at-spi2-atk, but then I got another error: typora: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-3.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Since extra/at-spi2-atk is installed by gtk3, I then removed at-spi2-atk (just to make sure) and installed gtk3, which solved the problem. Please add gtk3 to the list of dependencies for typora.
