MacJournal 7

A message about the transition from Mariner Software

Hello everyone! After a long and productive relationship with Mariner Software, MacJournal is returning home to be distributed here by its original developer. There are a few important details that will have to change as a result. First of all, MacJournal will be distributed exclusively on this website for now. The versions on the various App Stores will be removed as current App Store rules do not allow us to transfer them. Secondly, MacJournal will be distributed for free, just as it was when it got started almost 18 years ago. Third, there is a new version out today! You can see details for version 7 on this site and download the release now. Prior versions running on systems that can support version 7 will see an automatic update later this week. And finally, since support will also be back to a single person, support via email will be constrained. I will try to get back to everyone that writes, but there could be some delays so I thank everyone for their patience in advance. I'm excited about this next chapter of MacJournal and about the new release!
