Send Article to a Friend

BusyMac has released an update to its calendaring app, BusyCal 1.6.2, and while the list of fixes is small, they could prove important to many users. This new release corrects a bug that caused conflicts when syncing with Google Calendar, as well as another that prevented meetings from getting updated in iCloud. Additionally, it corrects an incompatibility with alarms that have no sound on Lion iCal Server. Localization changes round out the update. ($49.99 new, free update, 6.7 MB, release notes)
