The Omni Group Announces OmniOutliner 2.0, Releases Public Beta

Seattle, Washington — March 15, 2002 — Today, The Omni Group released the
first public beta of OmniOutliner 2.0, the first major rev of the popular
outlining application built exclusively for Mac OS X. A host of new and
very cool features have been added to help you outline like you’ve never
outlined before. Features new to OmniOutliner 2.0 include a new
customizable toolbar, new column types, notes, auto-numbering, sorting,
summary values, new keyboard shortcuts, support for alternating row colors,
an updated info window to support all of these new features, and more. What
does all of this mean? Instead of being a really simple tool that can help
you get organized, OmniOutliner is now a really good-looking, powerful,
simple-to-use tool that can help you get organized. Check out the release
notes for a complete list of new features and enhancements.

OmniOutliner 2.0 beta 1 includes an extended trial license that expires on
May 1, 2002 and can be downloaded from
