Today 1.5 Adds Alarms and Growl Support

Posted November 17, 2008 at 7:20pm by iClarified
Second Gear has released Today 1.5, an update to their popular Mac OS X application for managing iCal events and tasks. Today makes it easy to get a one day snapshot view of your upcoming events and tasks in a compact window. Assign a keyboard shortcut, and you can toggle Today's visibility in a split second. Adding new events and tasks is just as easy. You can quickly schedule next week's meeting or a quick task in Today. No iCal required.

In Today 1.5, Second Gear has added two of the most requested features. Users can now add custom alarms to notify them of upcoming events and tasks. Today 1.5 also adds support for the popular notification framework, Growl. Users can be notified of event and task creation, date changes and more. Other features, enhancements and fixes were also added to this version.

What's new in Today 1.5:
* Added support for creating and attaching alarms to events & tasks.
* Added support for Growl notifications: Event creation, task creation, nightly date change and task completion.
* Added notification symbol to tasks that are overdue.
* Refined registration process.
* Improved the hotkey setting functionality by implementing ShortcutRecorder.
* Reset the beta period for Today 1.5.
* Resolved a bug with declined CalDAV events causing Today to crash.
* Other smaller fixes and performance enhancements.

Today Features:
* See events and tasks for each day
* Create new events and tasks directly from the application
* Filter what events and tasks appear in Today based on their calendar
* Open an event or task externally in iCal
* Quick navigation between dates in the past or future
* Smaller footprint than iCal
