Eastgate currently sells Tinderbox for $99 instead of $145. Including a full year of free updates this is really a good price for this multi-purpose information/content management software (and much more). It is almost free for a software that can make you a better human!
Ted Goranson (from “About This Particular Macintosh”) updated his detailed series of articles about outliners and knowledge tools.

He also published a detailed view into Frontier as its core application is supposed to become Open Source later this year.

Eastgate does inofficially keep development versions of Tinderbox on their public ftp server. The latest release is 2.2.1 d7. Tinderbox users that dare to run on a development release may find some very useful enhancements (like better map printing). Finally images won’t be rewritten at each HTML export. These images were uploaded anytime I synchronized […]
I am playing around with Wiki tools. Because Zope is the platform on my current development agenda I looked into ZWiki.

I have added a sample file for a ToDo list management with Tinderbox. It is basically implementing the description of “TinderDo” by Gordon Meyer. Unfortunatly he did not include a sample file to start directly. So I made one myself. You can add tasks (and nested tasks) in the ToDo container and after entering a […]
