Malus Software has released Sambucus 2.0.0, an update of their multi-task time-management application for the Mac. This new version is a major rewrite, integrating many users requests and introducing a Mac OS X version, according to Jean Le Clerc of Malus.
You can now implement contact information per project. Notes can now be attached to both projects and tasks and a new “Description” field for projects, tasks and time stamps lets you describe the object for reporting purposes. Tasks can also now have their own hourly rate.
Activation files let you start or stop time stamps by dragging files to the application or timer window. Version 2.0.0 adds a complete importing/exporting feature and a flexible reporting module. Sambucus comes equipped with six basic reports, but you can customize them or create brand new ones with the XML report programming language. Plus, you can now define sets of tasks to create automatically when you create a new project
To use Sambucus, which is made with the REALbasic development environment from
REAL Software, you’ll need Mac OS 8.0 or later (including Mac OS X), at least 3MB of RAM and at least 4MB of disk space for the application (projects will use additional disk space). A 30-day trial version of Sambucus 2.0.0 is available at the
product Web site. Registration is US$20.
