New features in V-6.0a

   Major Features

   Minor Features

Important Note:

Note that DateBk6 now requires two prc files to be installed. Due to size limitations in the Palm OS development tools, the program had to be split up into two separate modules. DateBk6 has a new registration system. Registration codes from DateBk3 or Datebk4/5 will not work with Datebk6. The upgrade to DateBk6 from DateBk5 may be free to users who purchased DateBk5 or a Datebk5 upgrade on or after January 1, 2005 (but they do have to be able to use the automated upgrade system for which no assistance is given).

Downgrading back to DateBk5:

If you decided you want to downgrade to DateBk5 either temporarily or permanently, be sure that you do not have the startup view set to the Today View as that did not exist in DateBk5 and can under some circumstances cause a reset if DateBk5 is reading DateBk6's preferences. Either restore your original DateBk5DB preferences or delete the DateBk6DB preference database if you encounter any problems downgrading. Note that there is also a feature in DateBk6 to remove all the special tags that it has placed in the note field of appointments (Remove All Tags - in the Options menu of the main preference panel). Do not invoke this feature unless you are definitely removing DateBk6 as otherwise, you will lose all the special attributes that you assigned to events with Datebk6. Note that use of this feature is only to address a cosmetic issue - the tags in the note field have no affect on any other program.
