Studiometry 5.1, a new release of the organizational tool for Mac OS X, has been released. The new version adds over 50 updates, enhancements, features, and bug fixes. New in Studiometry 5.1 is the ability to sync to and from iCal. Previous versions of Studiometry could post calendars to iCal, but would not receive any changes made in iCal or other programs that modified iCal items. Now, editing an item in Studiometry or iCal will immediately sync the data to the other application, and Studiometry can even receive updates to tasks and events made on a PDA or mobile phone synced with iCal. Several other features have also been added to Studiometry 5.1. The developer says that users with Studiometry networks spanning multiple time zones will see greatly improved network syncing behaviors with the addition of relative Time Zone support. Studiometry will automatically calculate the difference between the client and server machines and adjust item times accordingly, giving a more consistent behavior for networks with computers connecting remotely over the internet.
