[prMac.com] Evansville, Indiana - Second Gear has released Today 1.5, an update to their popular Mac OS X application for managing iCal events and tasks. Today makes it easy to get a one day snapshot view of your upcoming events and tasks in a compact window. Assign a keyboard shortcut, and you can toggle Today's visibility in a split second.
