Happy midsummer! Fantastical 2.4 for Mac is here and ready to hit the beach with you! As usual, this is a free update if you already have Fantastical 2 for Mac. If you’ve previously tried Fantastical 2 for Mac, this update will reset your trial and give you another 21 days to try out Fantastical.
We’re hard at work on other exciting projects, so we’ll get right to it.
First, we have a video highlighting some the new features in 2.4:
You can now view, create, and edit attachments on iCloud and Exchange, as well as view attachments on Google Calendar.
One of our most requested features is finally here! Set and view travel time for events, and receive automatic time to leave notifications to ensure you get to your events on time.
Combined duplicate events
If you use Fantastical in a corporate setting with shared calendars you’ve inevitably had the situation where a single event ends up duplicated across all of your shared calendars. Fantastical 2.4 will now automatically merge these duplicate events into a single event to reduce clutter.
Undo and redo support
Fantastical now has full undo and redo support for adding, editing, and deleting events and reminders. Did you accidentally reschedule an event and want to move it back? Just press command-Z and your event will get moved back to where it was.
Month view improvements
Ever end up with so many events on one day that you can’t see them all in the Month view? There’s now an easier way to see those additional events. Click on the “more…” label on a busy day it will temporarily expand to show you everything on that day.
Also, if you like the Month view but wish you could see fewer or more events, we have a new option for you. The Month view can now be configured to show as few as two weeks at a time, or as many as eight weeks at a time.
Exchange invitation improvements
2.4 brings some new improvements to managing Exchange invitations.
First, you can now forward invitations to other people. Right-click on an invitation and select Forward and you can bring additional people in to an event.
Second, you can now respond to an Exchange invitation without sending a message to the sender. Click and hold on the Accept, Maybe, or Decline buttons and you can change your status silently.
Google invitation response messages
It is now possible to send a message when responding to an invitation on Google Calendar. Response messages appear in Google Calendar for the sender.
Facebook push updates
Get updates to your Facebook events even faster. Push updates make it so you’ll receive new events and updates to existing events within a few seconds. This is enabled for you automatically.
Please enjoy the new features in Fantastical 2.4 for Mac. And the rest of your summer. 🙂
