Park City, Utah – September 13, 2006 — Chronos LC today announced
the release of SOHO Organizer 5.6.2, an update to its personal and
business productivity suite. SOHO Organizer is designed for both
individual and workgroup use and the latest update represents an
important step forward in the complete rewrite of the former Personal
and Group Organizer products that it replaces. SOHO Organizer 5.6.2
is a free update for registered SOHO Organizer 5.x users.
ENHANCEMENTS, OPTIMIZATIONS, FIXES
SOHO Organizer 5.6.2 also includes the following enhancements,
optimizations and bug fixes:
* A new Year View makes it easy to see an entire year at a glance.
Plus, the Year View can be customized to show multiple years at once
for long term planning and scheduling events across year boundaries.
* Relationships between contacts can now be created via drag and drop
* Improved the speed of scrolling within a group of contacts in the
Contact Card and List views
* Fixed contact linking problem that would cause a contact to be
linked to itself in certain situations
* Fixed problem that caused newly converted events and tasks from
Personal Organizer to not appear until the software was restarted

Chronos web site at (http://www.chronosnet.com).
THE OFFICIAL SUCCESSOR
SOHO Organizer is the official successor to Personal Organizer and
Group Organizer and represents a 100% Cocoa rewrite of the former
products. This means SOHO Organizer presents a first-class Mac OS X
experience complete with all the features Mac OS X users expect: Aqua
interface, Unicode compliance, built-in spell checking, Service
support, etc. Finally, the true benefit of a complete Cocoa rewrite
is that SOHO Organizer is built for the future and can easily
accommodate future technologies.
SOHO Organizer makes managing customer relationships from phone calls
and notes to appointments and to-dos easy. It embraces and leverages
popular Mac OS X technologies and applications instead of trying to
replace them. For example, it synchronizes seamlessly with Address
Book and iCal so that users can continue to use them and other
applications that rely on their data. Users can thus use Apple’s
iSync to synchronize contacts and calendars in SOHO Organizer to cell
phones, iPods, Palm handhelds, and even .Mac.
ABOUT THE SOHO SERIES
SOHO Organizer is a key member of Chronos’ acclaimed small
office/home office series and bears the identifying “SOHO” moniker.
The SOHO Series is an integrated series of software solutions that
are designed and written specifically for small office and home
office users. Each product in the series is designed to work on its

solutions that are greater than the sum of their individual parts.
