Now Up-to-Date for Tiger
is in the final stage of beta testing and will be available by June. The update adds support for Mac OS X 10.4. The current shipping version, 4.5.3, is not Tiger-compatible. "We recommend that customers who rely on Now Up-to-Date and Contact wait until version 5 has been released before installing Tiger." Now Up-to-Date and Contact version 5 includes many new features, including team scheduling with the new Schedule View, the new Now Server Manager, an enhanced look and feel, and "literally hundreds of updates and improvements." The developer is "working on subsequent versions," which will add many Tiger-specific features, such as Dashboard Widgets for QuickDay and QuickContact, Spotlight support, and full support for Sync Services. These features will be provided free of charge to those that purchase or upgrade to version 5 and will be available later this year. Version 5 upgrades from version 4.x will be available for $50. The full version will costs $130 for new customers.
