Send Article to a Friend

Now Up-to-Date & Contact 4.5.3 Improves Servers -- Now Software has released Now Up-to-Date & Contact 4.5.3, a bug-fix upgrade to the company's multi-user calendaring and contact software. The update focuses on fixing problems in the Now Up-to-Date server and Now Contact server programs that mediate the sharing of calendar and contact data; you can read the change list for the gory details. There are some changes to the two client applications as well, and since the update is free to anyone running Now Up-to-Date & Contact 4.x, it's worth the 15.2 MB download. [ACE]
