The cat is out of the bag

Earlier today, we posted a public beta of MacJournal 5. This is the biggest update since probably ever for MacJournal and I'm really excited about it. I'll have more about it later, but if you want to check it out, you can get it here:

I expect to have a new beta out tonight to fix a crash some people have been seeing. If you install the linked build, you should see the update automatically.

Here are some of the high-level new features:

  • All new interface, built for Mac OS X Leopard.

  • Add any kind of content, not just text. Drag PDFs, QuickTime movies, images, and more into the Sidebar to create an entry with anything on your computer.

  • Open more than one MacJournal document at a time and save them wherever you want, or just use the default document and never worry about saving.

  • Create Smart Journals from searches you perform.

  • Create aliases to entries that you can store in other journals.

  • Assign each entry a rating, status, and priority, and sort any journal by those values.

  • Record video from your iSight and attach it to any entry.

  • Performance enhancements for working with large amounts of entries.
