OmniGraffle 4.2 is now available

by Joel on July 18, 2007

A long release process, finally done.

This marks the end of development on OmniGraffle 4, provided nothing unexpected occurs with the release of Mac OS X 10.5 (fingers crossed).

The upshot of this is that we're all now working on OmniGraffle 5. And speaking of Leopard, expect to see a public beta of Graffle 5 after the release of Mac OS X 10.5, as it will be required.

A couple of caveats concerning OmniGraffle 4.2 for those who haven't been running the beta releases:

  • OmniGraffle 4.2 requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later to run
  • OmniGraffle 4.2 is actually named “OmniGraffle 4” or “OmniGraffle Professional 4” and then localized to hide the number 4 in the Finder. This is done so users of Graffle 2 and Graffle 3 can download and install version 4 without overwriting their existing version of the application

Only change from the release candidate last week was a little icon polish.

Download, and enjoy!
