MacJournal 6.0 and 6.0.1b1

As you may have seen from a few other websites, MacJournal 6 was released last week! After 14 months of development, I’m thrilled that it’s out for everyone to use. I’m very proud of this release.

However, any large release has its share of small issues that need fixing. I aim to pick off the vast majority of the problems that have been reported with 6.0.1. So far, the biggest issue is that for some configurations, MacJournal has trouble quitting cleanly. Either it never quits, or it quits after a minute or so of spinning the CPU. These issues should be solved for 6.0.1. Today I’m releasing the first and only planned beta for 6.0.1 for those that want to try it out.

Here is 6.0.1b1:


Please let me know of any problems with this release via the “Report an Issue” menu item in the Help menu. Keep in mind though that this is a beta, and it’s always good to make sure you have backups of your important data when trying out a beta.

MacJournal and Lion

Apple's new operating system, Lion, came out last week and some users have wondered how MacJournal works with it. I'm happy to report that I've been using the current version of MacJournal with all of the developer seeds and the final release without any trouble. If you have had any issues, please do let me know at dschimpf@mac.com and we will work it out. Other than that, journal away!

MacJournal 5.2.7

Get it here.

This is a small bug-fix release for 5.2.6 to fix some of the issues discovered in that release and provide parity with the Mac App Store release. There are very few changes over the last beta. Thanks to everyone that tested the betas!

MacJournal 5.2.7b2

Get it here.

This is the second beta of 5.2.7. There are some fixes for iOS device syncing, especially in the case of "Keep Both" conflict resolution. Also, any deleted entries on the Mac will be placed in the Trash instead of deleted immediately. There are a few other assorted fixes, including ones for dragging journals between documents, and display of the word count field and search options buttons in extreme situations.

Please let me know of any issues via email by using the Report Issue item in the Help menu. Thanks for testing MacJournal!
