BusyMac has released a minor maintenance update to BusyCal, their iCal-replacement calendar program with sharing capabilities. Version 1.3.1 adds an Overwrite Sync Services button that addresses syncing errors in Snow Leopard, fixes an unspecified bug in Week View that's triggered by dragging events, reinstates the appearance of recurring To Dos in the Alarms menu, and fixes an unspecified bug that could occur when syncing birthdays on a LAN. The update also addresses two crashing bugs, one of which occurred when deleting duplicate events and one that could occur on program launch if corrupt preferences were present. Finally, the latest version adds more Help documentation, makes improvements in various localizations, and includes other minor enhancements and bug fixes. Version 1.3.2 fixes a crashing bug introduced in 1.3.1, along with a Calendar Group conversion bug when upgrading from 1.3. ($49 new, free update, 6.2 MB)
Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the best-selling Take Control ebooks.
