  • v1.3 - Released April 6, 2006
    • Added an option to make the contact data cache persistent which makes subsequent launches significantly faster. This also enables modifications to the display options to be enacted without requiring a slow data reload from Entourage. In addition, when the cache is enabled, the automatic data reload option is disabled and clicking on the Exchange accounts or category popup menus will not initiate a live update from Entourage. If you enable the cache and you need to update your contact information in EntourageABMenu because you have modified your contacts in Entourage, selecting “Reload Data Now” from the main menu or the preference window will force the cache to be rebuilt.
    • Added an option to automatically reload the contact data at a specific time each day. Using this feature, you could reload the data at a time when the machine is not in use (e.g., 3:00 AM) which allows your contact data in EntourageABMenu to be synchronized with Entourage without bogging down the system when it needs to be responsive.
    • Added options to the main contact name selection action to create a new email, dial with the phone number AppleScript, or show on Google Maps. If one of these items is selected the default email address, phone number, or postal address (respectively) is used for the action. If the required default data is not available for the contact, selecting the main contact name will do nothing.
    • Added selection action for groups (contacts grouped by a single category or company) to create new email with each of the default email addresses (if available) for all group members in the BCC field.
    • Modified the preferences so changing any of the display options and rebuilding the menus will not require the contact data to be reloaded from Entourage.
    • Improved support of contact names with diacritical characters (accent marks).
    • Fixed an error that caused the default postal address to not be listed first in some instances.
    • Fixed an error when creating a new email to a contact with an ampersand in the name.
    • Significant speed and memory optimizations.
    • Several interface modifications.

    • Added option to disable any of the contact submenus.
    • Added support for contacts stored in Exchange-based address books.
    • Added Outlook Web Access Global Address List lookups (requires an Exchange account with Outlook Web Access Global Address List search capabilities and Entourage 2004 SP2+).
    • Added option to normalize company names (this will attempt to clean and consolidate company names so that contacts will be grouped together if their company is the same except for minor variations such as character case).
    • Added option to use icons that more closely resemble the Entourage interface.
    • Added option to quit Entourage after loading data (note: clicking on the category names or Exchange account names popups causes EntourageABMenu to reload these popup menus with current data from Entourage and, if Entourage is not open, EntourageABMenu will launch Entourage).
    • Added option to include title and suffix in contact names (where available).
    • Other minor interface tweaks.
