[prMac.com] Milano, Italy - MaBaSoft today is pleased to announce the release of World Clock Deluxe 4.8, the latest version of their popular world time utility for Mac OS X. World Clock Deluxe is an easy-to-use and reliable time tool for companies and organizations regularly communicating with people across the world, frequent travelers, and home users having family or friends in other countries or time zones.
World Clock Deluxe displays multiple digital or analog clocks in a highly configurable horizontal or vertical palette, in the menu bar, and in the Dock, and can show the time in over 1,500 cities and 200 time zones and world times, including Coordinated Universal Time, Greenwich Mean Time, and Internet Time. It comes with a variety of date and time formats and can show times with seconds, weekday, date, date change, time zone, offset from UTC, and offset from local time.
World Clock Deluxe allows users to easily organize clocks so that they can always have a good overview of the displayed times. Colors and labels can be assigned to clocks to quickly single out the local clock or different groups of clocks. Clocks can be sorted by name, time, longitude, longitude offset, or label. Seldom used clocks can be hidden and different clocks can be displayed in the palette, in the menu bar, and in the Dock.
World Clock Deluxe helps users with phone or conference calls to other countries, foreign radio broadcasts, or online auctions with its time converter which calculates corresponding dates and times in two different cities or time zones and the time offset between them.
With World Clock Deluxe users can also easily show the weather all over the world. World Clock Deluxe downloads National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) weather reports for the selected clocks or cities and displays temperature, pressure, visibility, wind conditions, and precipitations.
Version 4.8 adds 73 new cities belonging to 36 different countries, updates daylight-saving time information for the Gaza Strip, Morocco, Syria, the West Bank, and Western Sahara, and allows cities with two daylight-saving time periods in the same year to support countries (e.g. Morocco) that suspend daylight-saving time during Ramadan. In addition to that, the new version corrects some geographical coordinates and replaces the dissolved Netherlands Antilles with Curaao and the Caribbean Netherlands. Finally, version 4.8 introduces some minor interface improvements and fixes some minor bugs.
