Today 1.6 adds natural language parsing for new events

Robert Palmer

Second Gear Software released version 1.6 of Today on Tuesday, fixing some minor bugs and adding natural language parsing to create new events.

Today is a handy utility that fetches data from your iCal calendars, and displays only the events for today in a tidy list on your screen.

Adding an event was simple, thanks to the natural language processing. Typing in Thursday at 9 am or today at 2 pm for the start time or end time of a new event yielded good results.

Bug fixes included improvements to Spaces behavior when in menu-bar mode, and miscellaneous performance tweaks. Version 1.5, released in November, added Growl notifications and alarm support.

Today is $15, universal binary, and available as a 10-day trial. A screencast showing off the software's major features is also available on Second Gear's website.

Steve has reviewed a previous version of Today, and Brett spoke with developer Justin Williams at WWDC last year.
