Mariner Software has introduced MacJournal 5.0, the latest edition of its journaling software for Macs.

The application has been totally redesigned and built for Leopard. It now allows users to add any kind of content, PDFs, QuickTime movies, images, and text to their journal. In addition, bloggers can now blog video to their blog on Blogger, WordPress, LiveJournal or a .Mac account. It is even possible to record video using an iSight camera from inclusion within an entry.

MacJournal 5 also introduces Smart Journals, which allow specific criteria to be searched upon. Assign each entry a rating, status, and priority, and sort any journal by those values. Additional features include support for aliases that can be stored in other journals; Picasa integration; the capacity to resize images in any entry and QuickLook support.

"MacJournal 5 is our most significant update yet," said Michael Wray, president of Mariner Software. "Not only did we improve the user interface, but, behind the scenes, we also recreated the architecture. Now users can have years, even decades, worth of photos, video, or graphics, and MacJournal will still be blazing fast."

MacJournal 5 is available now and costs $34.95.
