[prMac.com] Seattle, WA - BusyMac today released BusyCal 1.0, a Mac OS X desktop calendar that provides seamless calendar sharing and enhanced productivity tools for workgroups and individuals.

* Enter and view event details in a non-modal floating window or an embedded info pane

* Display events in several customizable views including a List View and scrolling Month and Week Views
* Display graphics, sticky notes, live weather feeds and moon phases in your calendar
* Apply custom font styles to events and notes
* Display alarms in a floating window and on the menu bar
