In addition to a Universal Binary release that works natively on PowerPC and Intel-based Macs, Curio 3.1 adds new features including search term highlight, idea space hoisting and improved PDF display options.
Curio is available in Basic, K-12, Home and Professional Editions for $39, $50, $79 and $129 respectively. Each version sports a different feature list. A downloadable demo is also available.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.3.9 or later.
