MacJournal 6.0.3

Use the "Check for Update" item in the MacJournal menu to get it, or visit to download directly.

The big goals with this release are performance and stability. Well, performance, stability, and export. Several bugs that could cause crashes are fixed, as well as issues that could prevent proper content searching. Search indexing should also be faster, as well as any other situation where you're loading a lot of entry text all at once (such as exporting). Multiple selection of entries should also be faster. Several issues with export have been fixed, including several file naming issues.

If you obtained MacJournal from the Mac App Store, you can get the update from the normal App Store update mechanism when Apple approves the update, which should be soon (judging from past experiences).

A word on localizations: unfortunately, they are still underway. We are working hard to update the localizations right now, but none of them are complete enough for this release. Once any of the localizations is ready, a new release will include them as soon as possible.

MacJournal 6.0.3b2

A few more small fixes in this beta, and one or two larger ones. There are a few more fixes for encrypted journals, including exporting certain entries out of them. The separate entry editing windows should remember their size and position and show up when you relaunch on Lion. Performance of some things, including multiple selection, should also be improved.

6.0.3 will be out by the end of the month, so let me know if you have any problems. Use the Report an Issue item in the Help menu to report issues with this beta.

MacJournal 6.0.3b1

Get it now.

This is the first beta for 6.0.3, another small bug fix release. This fixes a few crashers, as well as fixing search indexing for those that have been experiencing it (depending on how your data are structured). There are a few tiny UI differences, including reorganizing the Format menu a bit to match TextEdit better (something I meant to do before 6.0), and requiring the Command key to move something in the Sidebar or Entries List to the Trash to reduce accidental actions. Performance should also be improved.

Please let me know of any problems using the Report an Issue item in the Help menu. If you have purchased MacJournal via the App Store, this beta won't recognize that license right now. I'm looking into ways of letting App Store customers test betas in the future.
