Omni Group updates
The Omni Group has released OmniGraffle 5.0rc1 and OmniOutliner 3.6.5. OmniGraffle 5.0rc1 is the latest beta release of the company's diagram creation software that refines AppleScript support for user data on models as well as graphics. OmniOutliner 3 is an update to the program for creating, collecting, and organizing information. OmniGraffle is priced at $80 for the standard edition and $150 for the professional version, with upgrades starting at $30. OmniOutliner is available in standard and professional versions for $40 and $70, respectively, while upgrades start from $20. OmniGraffle 5.0rc1 requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later, and OmniOutliner 3.6.5 requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later.
The latest release of OmniGraffle fixes numerous bugs, sets a quarantine on Graffletopia downloads, checks for AppleScript when opening a quarantined file, and adds AppleScript support for shared layers. The update also informs Graffletopia of downloads, and allows users to export to the OmniOutliner 3 format.
OmniOutliner 3.6.5 serves as a stability update, fixing a regression in Mac OS X 10.3.9 support introduced with the prior version's fix for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.
