AB server update ships
Address Book Server has updated its Address Book and Calendar Server software to offer a manual sync mode via iSync. The new version can now generate e-mail lists for each group, and web interface enhancements and bugfixes are also present. Address Book and Calendar Server allows a user to host an Address Book server on a local network, synchronizing local and remotely connected Macs and syncing other computers via a web interface. iPhone and iPod touch users can access the information via a free read-only app available on the iTunes App Store.
The server can be installed on a Mac, Linux or Windows machine and supports Apple's Address Book and iCal, along with My SQL, SQL Server, Oracle and more. The client-side version requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher, with Linux and Windows access through web browsers. Address Book and Calendar Server costs $30.
