Editing iCal Events in Snow Leopard

Snow Leopard makes looking at event details in iCal easier. In the Leopard version of iCal, you had to double-click an event to reveal only some information in a pop-up box; you then needed to click the Edit button (or press Command-E) to edit an item's information. In Snow Leopard, choose Edit > Show Inspector (or press Command-Option-I) to bring up a floating inspector that provides an editable view of any items selected in your calendar.

SOHO Organizer 9.2.8

Send Article to a Friend

Since Adam Engst’s review of SOHO Organizer (see “SOHO Organizer Syncs Contacts with iCloud in Snow Leopard,” 25 June 2012), Chronos has updated its contact and calendar management suite twice, addressing several bugs identified in the course of writing that review. With the version 9.2.7 update, SOHO Organizer improved support for connecting to CalDAV and CardDAV accounts from different iCloud servers and recovering damaged or unreadable CalDAV and CardDAV databases on startup. It also improved performance of the Attachments block with large quantities of email, and ensured that accounts are taken online after a network becomes available again. Plus, this maintenance release fixed an auto-refresh problem with calendar subscriptions in iCloud, improved syncing of contacts that included unexpected styles of field labels, and fixed problems with published/subscribed iCloud calendars that generated errors or didn’t refresh.

While version 9.2.7 aimed to remove all references to MobileMe within the app (due to its shuttering), SOHO Organizer 9.2.8 was released a few days later to fix a problem where an obsolete MobileMe panel was still appearing in the Accounts preference pane. ($99.99 new, free update, 77.77 MB, release notes)
