What's New in Version 8.0 - Improved Color Picker

Version 8.0 makes it easier to select colors, or define custom colors, for calendar items such as events, tasks, notes, categories, priorities, etc. Clicking the color picker will show a drop-down grid of common colors, along with buttons for setting the color to be transparent or to pick from more colors. Additional colors can be quickly selected via a color wheel, with sliders for adjusting the saturation and brightness of the color. [More]

What's New in Version 8.0 - Many Other Improvements

Version 8.0 contains many improvements and corrections that were not mentioned in the other articles of this blog. A quick summary of the more significant changes is listed below:

  • The Details pane has been improved to show information for the contact selected in the Contacts List.

  • The Desktop Calendar has a new "Day" view tab, and the tabs have been moved along the left side to reduce unused space.

  • A spell checker has been added to the text editor used for event, task, note, and contact details.

  • A memory leak has been corrected, which results in Version 8.0 using less memory and being more stable than the previous version.
