Minneapolis, Minn.-based Mariner Software has announced a publishing agreement with Dan Schimpf Software, developer of the journaling application
MacJournal. The software’s text editing features allow you to keep a journal, publish a blog, create scripts or novels and more. It supports nested multiple journals, password protection with AES-256 encryption, a search function, a spellchecker and more. In addition, the application is compatible with such file formats as Microsoft Word, RTF and HTML and it integrates with such online blog services as LiveJournal, Blogger, Movable Type, WordPress and others.
You can expect to see MacJournal 3 ship on Jan. 4, according to Schimpf’s Web site, although new features, if any, have not been announced yet. Schimpf does note, however, that MacJournal 3 replaces version 2.7, which was in development when the deal was announced. While the software used to be free, the new version will sell for US$29.95, with an upgrade path to be announced. You can expect to see “support for nearly a dozen more languages in the near future,” according to Mariner Software. Mac OS X v10.2 will be required.
