Fantastical 2.2

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Flexibits has released Fantastical 2.2 [1] (dubbed “the massively big, massively awesome update”) with a plethora of additions to the calendar app, starting with the addition of native Exchange support. Previously, Exchange support was dependent upon Apple’s built-in calendar support, but with Fantastical’s native implementation, the app now supports responding to invitations, meeting room scheduling and lookup, Global Address List lookup, and more (see this blog post [2] for the full list of Exchange additions). Additionally, Fantastical 2.2 brings a new invitee availability view that works with compatible services such as Exchange and Google (but not iCloud).

The update also adds the capability to print calendars and reminder lists in a variety of different views, adds support for iCloud shared calendar notifications, displays Google Hangout links with Google Apps accounts, ensures that Push for Google accounts shows changes immediately, adds a preference to start month view on the current week, improves search speed in calendars with large numbers of recurring events, highlights selected date in week and month views, and adds multiple selection (enabling you to move and delete multiple items at once). ($49.99 new from Flexibits and the Mac App Store [3], free update, 13.2 MB, release notes, 10.10+)
