Fantastical 2.0.2

Flexibits has issued Fantastical 2.0.2, a maintenance update for the recently released major upgrade to the popular calendar app (see “Fantastical 2 Aims to Replace Apple’s Calendar,” 27 March 2015). The update improves iCloud account setup when entering an incorrect password, speeds up loading of Exchange and local calendars, fixes a crash caused by adding a Google account, rejiggers the Today widget to display only upcoming events if there isn’t enough room for a complete schedule, fixes an issue when TextExpander is activated while typing into the input field, and improves account setup when connecting to CalendarServer and OS X Server. Fantastical 2 has a 14-day free trial, and currently costs $39.99 from either the Flexibits Store or the Mac App Store; the price will go up to $49.99 after an introductory discount period. ($39.99 new, free update from Flexibits and the Mac App Store, 12.1 MB, release notes)
