Popular Mac calendar app Fantastical 2 was today updated to version 2.5, introducing a number of important changes that Fantastical users have been asking for.
The updated app includes support for sending and receiving time proposals on Exchange, iCloud, Google, and other CalDAV accounts, which means users that are sent an invite and need to offer up an alternate time can click the new option to suggest an updated time for an event, with a response sent directly to the event creator.
Support for sending Exchange responses that do not require responses from invitees has also been added.
Meetup.com integration is now included, so users are able to add a Meetup account to Fantastical to keep track of and respond to upcoming meetup events.
There's a new option for showing timed events that span for more than one day in the all-day section of the Day or Week views in Fantastical for Mac, and in month view, start and end times for these events will be displayed.
Fantastical users can now put the mini window in Split View full screen mode right alongside other apps, there's a new option to show the current calendar week in the Dock or menu bar icon, multiple calendars can be enabled or disabled at once, and there's a URL handler for changing calendar sets.
Pressing the option key while editing the start time of an event will keep the end time the same, and there are new keyboard shortcuts for quickly adjusting event start times and end times. Control + option + up/down arrows will adjust the start time of an event, while control + shift + up/down arrow will adjust the end time of an event.
Other new features include improved labeling for Exchange events where a response is not required, better labeling of custom anniversary dates from Contacts, and improved performance when loading subscriptions with hundreds or thousands of events.
Today's update is free for existing users. Fantastical for Mac can be downloaded from the Mac App Store for $49.99. [Direct Link]
