Merlin 2.9.2 update with support for OS X 10.9

Today we’ve released a new free Merlin update. 2.9.2 update is recommended for all Merlin and Merlin Server users.

New Features in Merlin

  • Merlin und Merlin Server work now under OS X 10.9 Mavericks as well.
  • Merlin supports the Tags of Mavericks in the file save dialog.

Resolved Issues in Merlin

  • The synchronization between Merlin and Calendar is reimplemented for OS X 10.9 Mavericks. The features are the same, but with one exception: Changes made in the Calendar can not synchronized back to Merlin unter OS X 10.9 Mavericks. In OS X 10.8 and earlier, this is still possible.
  • Changing between the standard and Merlin print dialog under 10.8 could lead to an exception.
  • Under special combinations of countries and languages, Merlin could not handle duration units properly.
  • Resources from an LDAP directory could not be displayed in Merlin correctly.
  • Some exceptions of the resource working times would not get exported into MS Project XML.
  • A few error messages and notifications were misleading.
  • Some project templates and reports are revised.
  • Fixed some translation issues and typos.
  • The German and English help files are updated.

Resolved Issues in Merlin Server

  • Project could not be opened in Merlin, if the Merlin Server did run under OS 10.9 Mavericks.
