Rendezvous with Now Up-to-Date & Contact 4.5.2 -- Many fans of Now Software's Now Up-to-Date & Contact stick with it because of its capability to host calendars and contact information on shared network servers. This feature gets a boost in version 4.5.2 with its support of Rendezvous (also known as Zero Configuration Networking) for more easily connecting devices on a network. The update also adds support for Apple's new Xserve G5, and includes stability enhancements. Now Up-to-Date & Contact 4.5.2 requires Mac OS X 10.2 or later, and is a 17.6 MB download. [JLC]
