OmniGraffle 5.0 beta 7 is now available

by Joel on February 7, 2008

As I gaze out over the release notes, I see there have been many many changes and fixes since the last beta release. I myself am not as familiar with them as I might be, I have been on a short vacation and of course got sick at the end of it, as that's what seems to happen when you go on a short vacation, you get sick.

So some nice folks (notably Andrew and Troy) handled the release today, while I've been watching from afar, trapped in my apartment due to this blasted chest cold.

In any case, we're zeroing in on a final release, getting ever closer, fit and finish and polish and the rest.

You can read Andrew's copious release notes at the historical release notes page, or see them as well at the beta page, where downloading is as always possible.

OmniPlan 1.5 RC 2 Released!

by Skwirl on February 6, 2008

OmniPlan 1.5 RC 2 is now available and is a free update for existing OmniPlan 1.x owners. Thanks to all you brave testers out there, we're now closer than ever to releasing the final. If you find any issues in RC 2 please please please let us know as soon as you can. Also, if you're a Leopard user we strongly recommend that you use OmniPlan 1.5 instead because there are some known issues between OmniPlan 1.1.2 and Leopard.

Highlights of this version include a permanent solution to prevent the overlaid progress meter that comes up for some slow operations from forcing Spaces to switch to the space containing the document window. If you previously disabled the progress meter entirely as we suggested in the release notes for OmniPlan-1.5 beta 3, they will remain disabled until specifically reenabled. In a Terminal window, type “defaults delete com.omnigroup.OmniPlan LongOperationIndicatorDisabled” We also patched up the Automatic Software Update interface in the Italian localization.

To learn more about all the changes in OmniPlan 1.5, please see the release notes for more details!

Please keep in mind that this release is still under development. Your feedback will help us improve the software, and we apologize if it breaks your computer, corrupts your files, and ruins your weekend. A more stable release is also available. As always, please let us know if you have any questions or comments. You can contact us directly via our support page or by using the Send Feedback feature in your copy of OmniPlan.

For current 1.5 beta users, you can use our nifty new software updater to download and install the new beta. For everyone else, go here to download the RC!

OmniOutliner 3.6.4 Beta 1 Now Available

by Derek on February 6, 2008

OmniOutliner 3.6.4 beta 1 is now available and is as usual free for all 3.x owners. Sorry, no QuickLook support yet but that is coming later. This fixes the 10.5 crash we missed in the last release and the Spaces bug that switched you to OmniOutliner on an autosave. And, exciting news for some, the “a” prefix bug is hopefully fixed with this release as well!

OmniPlan 1.5 RC 1 Released!

by Skwirl on January 31, 2008

OmniPlan 1.5 RC 1 is now available and is a free update for existing OmniPlan 1.x owners. We're getting closer to final and if you're a Leopard user, we strongly recommend that you use OmniPlan 1.5 instead because there are some known issues between OmniPlan 1.1.2 and Leopard.

Some highlights of this version include fixes for a crash when closing a document that contained assignments, a crash when dragging new dependency lines in the gantt chart (for real this time!), and a fix for the Software Update preferences that would throw up a “valueForUndefinedKey” error in beta 5. If you are experiencing any issues in RC 1, please let us know as soon as possible.

This version also includes some other bug fixes and enhancements (far too many to list here). To learn more about the changes in 1.5 RC 1, please see the release notes for more details!

Please keep in mind that this release is still under development. Your feedback will help us improve the software, and we apologize if it breaks your computer, corrupts your files, and ruins your weekend. A more stable release is also available.
