February 11, 2010 in Software (E)

[] Evansville, IN - Second Gear is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Today 2.1, the latest version of its popular calendaring application Today. Today makes it easy to get a one day snapshot view of your upcoming events and tasks in a compact window. No iCal required.

Version 2.1 adds support for BusyCal, the popular third-party calendaring and collaboration app from BusyMac. Users with BusyCal set as their default calendaring application will now be able to see, create and open events from their BusyCal calendars. Today 2.1 was also backported to run on Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. A full changelog is available on the Today Web site.
