Andy has blogged about a potential bug in the new Gizmo Project which he and I spotted yesterday. If you’re a PC Gizmo user who has to communicate with Mac Gizmo users, you probably shouldn’t upgrade until this one is fixed.
The feature in the new release which I was looking forward to the most (Outlook import) is still a little unfinished. I loaded my 2300 name contact database from Outlook into it, which was great, but there is (a) no way to dial by name, and (b) no way to search the list. It’s not a problem if you have a small contact list, but for my contact list it’s not useful yet.
I remain a huge fan of Gizmo Project, by the way. If you haven’t tried it, you should.
UPDATE: I have heard from Jason Droege at Gizmo that this issue isn’t a client issue. Rather, it’s a problem with their Jabber back end. A fix is on the way.
