Version 2 Info

Version was released to address sporadic conflicts with Outlook's API often caused by anti-virus applications.

By implementing a secondary method of connection, OfficeCalendar can now determine the best method of connection with Outlook each time it needs to synchronize, greatly reducing the potential for errors caused by conflicts with other Outlook add-ins.

Version 2 Info

December 30, 2005 - Version Released

Version has been released.
Version information - Following up on our March release of version, we have improved our support for multiple time zones. We have also addressed reported issues with recurring appointments syncing across different time zones. The group calendar processing has been updated behind the scenes to provide for faster syncs and in most cases will alleviate the "locking up" of Outlook during the sync that certain environments were experiencing. In addition, additional safeguards were added to the synchronization process to eliviate the potential for duplicate entries within Outlook.

Version 2 information for Version 1 users - Version includes many new features including support for date formats other than MM/DD/YYYY and support for syncing across multiple time zones. Read the What's New in Version 2 page for full details on all the new features. This upgrade is available free to all version 1 users who purchased an upgrade protection plan. The upgrade is available for purchase to any user that purchased Version 1 but did not purchase the upgrade protection. All existing users will need to log into their account for information on downloading or purchasing the upgrade.
