    I’ve heard there are some wildlife groups trying to get Apple to do more stuff with the actual S.L.’s lol. I don’t know- people are saying it’s good PR for Apple- they should jump on that.

    Just downloaded the patch & it seems to be working (I couldn’t insert spaces in the text in a topic – pressing the space bar gave me a new topic instead of a space).
    Agree with the earlier about update system – I 1st checked for updates to the software and was told I had the latest version & only found this patch via Google.
    PS as a long term user of your Windows software I have to say the Mac version is a very poor 2nd – hope the new version does a bit more than integrate iCal- fingers crossed)

    The SnowLeopard item was already published.
    Of course even we may miss some info sometimes

    Hey MJ Team,

    I was one of the many frustrated users when MJ wasn’t ready for SN on the Mac side of things. While my initial expectations were not met, I really do appreciate your transparency on your blog and twitter to keep us up to speed.

    Here’s to getting right the second time!

    Koga & Wim, Yes, definitely. The web site will be updated tomorrow, the 10th. We posted the fix in the places where we could add it to the web immediately. Our web site is currently staged so we need to add content on scheduled dates (e.g. 9/10). Thanks for the feedback!

    Hello Guys,

    Congrats with the way you are communicating with your clients. By communicating on your blog, reacting promptly and in all openness to the comments. Now at least you know for sure your software is critical for many of your clients. :)

    Maybe you should communicate about this update on your website too. When I check for new updates from MM7 application, it said there were no updates available. When I started googling, I happily found out about this update. I’m sure you were planning to do so.

    Thanks a lot.

    Please can you add this update to the update system packaged with the software?

    I’m not sure every customer will read the blog…

    Many thanks for the update!

    My apologies for the abruptness of the chat conversation. We try to keep chats short and direct, and we certainly stay on if we believe there will any issues experienced. In this case, we should have confirmed that it would be ok with the customer to drop off prior to doing so. However, we do not expect any issues with the new download.
