1. Fantastical 1.2: Going global January 24, 2012

    Fantastical 1.2 is now available, providing complete localizations for French, German, Italian, and Spanish. Not only is the UI localized, Fantastical understands these languages, automatically detecting the language you’re using regardless of your Mac’s language setting!

    Since the parsing engine needed to be translated for each language, localizing Fantastical was a great deal of work. However, we’re still considering other languages in the future depending on demand. If you’d like your language supported, please contact us and let us know.

    Version 1.2 also includes better repeating event recognition, so you can now enter events such as “Soccer practice every Tuesday and Thursday at 5pm” or “Lunch every Tuesday until 2/5.” There are also UI improvements, including showing event end times and dimming out today’s past events.

    With 1.2 out the door, we’re shifting our focus to making some internal improvements to Fantastical. Part of these improvements will go towards supporting for reminders, along with a number of other features. We’ll be sharing development progress and sneak peeks here when the time comes.

    Don’t forget: we’ll be at Macworld/iWorld 2012 this week. Come say hello to us at booth #228 in the OS X Zone!
