Merlin Project 4.3

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

ProjectWizards has released version 4.3 of Merlin Project [1], bringing full support for macOS 10.13 High Sierra to the project management software. The update also adds Japanese and Simplified Chinese localizations, resolves an issue where user-defined number or duration fields were not cumulated, corrects a problem that prevented a document with sub-projects that was reverted back to a previous state from working properly, and resolves a bug with some mappings of columns in CSV documents to Merlin Project fields.

The full professional edition of Merlin Project costs $289 (upgrades from version 3 are free and $159 from version 2). If that’s overkill for an occasional project, check out Merlin Project Express, which is optimized for home and semi-professional users and received the same changes as the full edition. It’s available on a subscription basis through the Mac App Store [2] and the Setapp subscription service [3] — both of which provide a free one-month trial. ($289 new, free update, 25.3 MB, release notes [4], 10.10.5+)
