Now Up-to-Date & Contact 5.0 Released -- Now Software has released Now Up-to-Date & Contact 5.0, the latest version of the company's long-standing multi-user calendar and contact management software. New features include a Schedule View for seeing multiple people's schedules simultaneously, a single interface to manage multiple calendar and contact servers, the capability to subscribe to iCal calendars, vCard and iCalendar support, a redesigned interface for a more modern look and improved ease-of-use, and customizable toolbars. The update also provides compatibility with Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, and Now Software plans a free update for later in the year to add support for Tiger-specific features like Dashboard, Spotlight, and most importantly, SyncServices, enabling Now Up-to-Date & Contact to share data with any other SyncServices-aware application or device. (Roughly speaking, SyncServices is the system-level version of iSync that promises to provide more generalized synchronization capabilities.) And last, but certainly not least, Now Up-to-Date & Contact 5.0 will feature a new Take Control user manual written by Joe Kissell; it should be available in the relatively near future. The upgrade to Now Up-to-Date & Contact 5.0 from version 4.x costs $50, and there's a 30-day free trial version available as a 13.9 MB download. [ACE]
