  4. Briefcase model added to MultiCalendar Client. Any time you can turn on the "Briefcase" mode. Then all changes will be kepted locally until you click the "Refresh" button. Breifcase model is very useful if you want to access your data when you do not have network access to your server. Please note, MultiCalendar Client only saves currently loaded data to its briefcase. If you want to change the currently loaded data range, you need to adjust the Date Navigator manually before you turn on the "Briefcase" mode. Whenever you are back to your server, click the "Refresh" button and MultiCalendar will submit any changes you made with the briefcase to your server and working with your server again.

  5. Resource photo support. Now you can select a photo from your computer, or just take a photo using your webcam and choose it as any resource's photo in MultiCalendar.

    live previewA breaking change is introduced here because of the photo support. MultiCalendar will not display any icon on the resource header area any more. You can set the resource photo display position to above the resource name, below the resource name, or left/right of the resource name, or just hide the resource photos.
  6. A new button added on the ribbon bar to let you pin the ribbon bar or unpin the ribbon bar. You will have more screen space for the calendars if you unpin the ribbon bar.
