JNSoftware (http://www.jonn8.com/) has updated JABMenu, a tool for
utilizing your Mac OS X Address Book data through a system-wide menu,
to version 2.2. The new version has been updated to 64-bit, adds an
option to specify the menu icon and improves phone number formatting.
JABMenu also adds an option to toggle related groups in the “Groups”
submenu for the contacts specified in the contact source preference.
Additionally, the upgrade adds a menu item to clear the data cache
without having to open the preferences window and help buttons in the
JABMenu provides access to your contacts’ phone numbers, email,
instant messaging, and postal addresses, URLs, and notes. Selecting a
menu item can trigger an action such as displaying it in large type,
copying it to the clipboard, creating a new email message, dialing
the phone, or showing an address on a map.
JABMenu, a Universal Binary for both Intel and PowerPC-based Macs,
requires Mac OS X 10.5.6 or later. It’s available in English and
French. JABMenu costs US$15, though version 2.2 is a free update for
registered users of version 2.2.
