Chronos has released SOHO Organizer 5.5, offering a complete rewrite of the former Personal and Group Organizer products that it replaces.

The Cocoa-developed software is a free update for registered SOHO Organizer 5.x users.

A plethora of new features debut here, including contact and calendar management in a single application, SOHO Organizer. This offers new Day and Journal views, support for notes and a converter application to move data into Organizer from prevous tools from Chronos.

A range of smaller improvements - such as enabling support for hierarchical groups - also appear in this release. The software synchronises with Address Book and iCal, and Sync support means data can be synced with phones, iPods and .Mac.

A fully functional 30 day trial version is available for download from the company. It costs $99.95.
