today announced the release of Group Organizer Server 4.0.3, its first Cocoa product — and therefore, its first Mac OS X-only application.

Group Organizer Server was previously written as a Carbon application. However, version 4.03 has been re-written from the ground up using Cocoa and makes use of native Unix sockets for TCP/IP networking, Jerry Halls, Chronos’ VP of sales, said.
The new server is immediately available, free of charge, to all existing Group Organizer 4 users. It may be downloaded directly from Chronos’ Web site.
Group Organizer is the network version of Chronos’ Personal Organizer. It integrates a calendar, address book, word processor, memo taker, personal journal, phone dialer, and alarm clock into a single application. Plus, it synchronizes with both Palm and Visor handhelds. Users may access their calendar, contacts, memos and to-dos over an AppleTalk network or a TCP/IP network, including the Internet.
Personal and Group Organizer 4.02 require Mac OS 8.6 or above, including Mac OS X. The applications take 13MB of disk space and run in as little as 5000 K. You can test drive either app with a 30-day trial version, also available from the Chronos site. Personal Organizer 4.02 costs US$59.99. Group Organizer is $99.99 per user.
Group Organizer Server 4.03 requires Mac OS X. The application occupies less than 1 MB of disk space. Group Organizer clients may connect to the new server from both Mac OS 8.6-9.x and Mac OS X.
