  • The width of contact columns are now saved.
  • Added a "toggle text strikeout" option to the notebook. It can be accessed from the right click menu (and option button).
  • Added a "Paste (clean)" and a "Copy (clean)" to the nootbook. This will for example paste the text clean without any font/line properties etc. This was added because I find it quite annoying that coping text from for example my browser, also copies the font and line properties to the notebook.
  • Added an option to Setup/misc called "Show date in system tray icon" to have the current date be displayed in the tray icon (only works if minimize to system-tray is enabled).
  • Fixed that after synchronizing the password dialog could look odd (if CM lost focus).

    "Excellent program"

    Very good little PIM, between the too little ones and the too big ones. Perfect for the most people, I think. Too bad...   More.
