OmniOutliner 3.9 final released!

by Derek on August 19, 2009

OmniOutliner 3.9 is now available as a free update for all OmniOutliner 3 customers! Thanks to everyone who helped beta test, we appreciate it!

This release brings some much needed updating in the form of our self-installing updater and switching to Apple's auto-save feature. Any file you have open will now be backed-up even if you've never saved it!

The other big addition in 3.9 is a new exporter for OmniOutliner Professional. You will now find a “Word 2007 Format (docx)” in the list which exports to Microsofts new Office Open XML format. The docx format can also be imported to Pages '09 and some other apps. This export will retain your level styles and also retain the outline structure for viewing in Word's outline mode. More details about what is supported and its limitations are available in the release notes.

If you're already using OmniOutliner 3, version 3.9 is a free update. If you haven't tried out OmniOutliner yet, version 3.9 has switched over to using a 2-week fully functional trial instead of trial licenses, so give it a go! There's also a number of smaller additions and bug fixes in this release. Please see the release notes for full details. Head on over to the download page when you're ready, or use the built-in updater if you're using a 3.9 beta (OmniOutliner menu -> Check for Updates). If you have any feedback on this release, please let us know by using the Send Feedback option under the help menu or send an email to omnioutliner@omnigroup.com. Thanks!
