Mariner Software Announces MacGourmet Deluxe Company to Republish Popular
Recipe and Wine Management Software

Minneapolis, MN – Apr 03, 2008 Mariner Software, developers and publishers
of professional and personal software, today announced an agreement made
with Advenio Software to republish the industry-recognized recipe and wine
management software for Mac OS X, MacGourmet. The product will make its
public debut under the Mariner brand with a major update, MacGourmet
Deluxe, in June 2008. MacGourmet Deluxe is the latest release in Mariner
Software’s award-winning line of personal creativity software.

Often called the “iTunes for Recipes,” MacGourmet brings recipe
organization into the 21st century. Users can create and edit recipes, make
wine and cooking notes, easily browse an entire recipe collection, as well
as build custom lists for categories like appetizers or desserts. Users can
even publish recipes to .Mac or personal blogs. Easily import recipes found
on the web and add to individual collections. Like the “feel” of a recipe
card? MacGourmet can print on index cards too. Even export shopping lists
to various PDA’s.

New in MacGourmet Deluxe:

Menu planner functionality that adds week-based meal planning, meal planner
and menu printing. iCal integration.
Nutritional database analysis.
All-new shopping list editor with simple pantry/favorites and column
ordering/hiding functionality added. Widescreen mode now has new mouse-
over popups that display more information. And much more…

“We have been talking about entering this market for quite some time.” said
Michael Wray, President of Mariner Software. “Gourmet cooking and wine
collection are two interests loved by millions and MacGourmet is easily the
best solution out there to organize and simplify these hobbies. We are
elated to be working with Advenio and look forward to bring a different
element of computing fun to the kitchen with MacGourmet Deluxe.”

“I’m really excited about the partnership between Mariner and Advenio,”

great line-up of products, and adding MacGourmet Deluxe will allow it to
get into many new markets – ones that weren’t accessible before.”
