Merlin 2.5 released
ProjectWizards today released the final version of Merlin, its professional project management application for Mac OS X. Merlin 2.5 features multi-user functionality that enables project managers to work together to get real-time feedback on projects. Merlin 2.5 is priced at $205, with upgrades for Merlin 2.0 customers available for free (system requirements were unavailable.
"We recognize that project management is a collaborative effort; now Merlin 2.5 enables project managers to work together to get real-time feedback on their projects," said ProjectWizards CEO Frank Blome.
The update adds networking capability, as well as the ability to assign dedicated user- or group-defined access rights to dynamic planning and bi-directional synchronization with iCal.
Current Merlin users will notice an improved overall interface, enhanced Gantt chart information -- such as group boundaries and non-working time, more flexible project and resource calendar controls, and multiple windows that allow users to view projects from many different angles.
"We are pleased to offer Merlin 2.5 as a free upgrade to all our Merlin 2.0 customers," Blome added. "We believe very strongly that it will become the premier Macintosh-based project management software on the market today."
