NoteBook 1.2 Adds HTML Export and More -- Circus Ponies Software has released NoteBook 1.2, a significant update to their note-taking, outlining, and snippet-keeping application for Mac OS X. (NoteBook and AquaMinds' NoteTaker share a common lineage; Matt Neuburg reviewed NoteTaker in "Take Note of NoteTaker" in TidBITS-677 and I've been using NoteBook for a while now.) New in NoteBook 1.2 is a 1-Step HTML Export feature that enables users to export a single page or an entire notebook to HTML, with a range of customization options. For those keeping sensitive data in NoteBook, a new security framework lets you password-protect your entire notebook and optionally encrypt specific pages. Other new features include enhanced sorting, more powerful searching, color choices for action items, fully illustrated online help, numerous bug fixes, Panther compatibility (though I'm working with Circus Ponies to track down a bug that causes NoteBook to crash on only the first launch on my Mac after a restart in Panther), and more. NoteBook 1.2 is free to registered customers; new copies cost $50. It's a 7.6 MB download and a 30-day trial version is available. [ACE]
