Calendar Xª is a unique multi-discipline calendar with diary, astronomical tables and ISO Week calculator/Day calculator. This release provides Universal Binary format and introduces several new features as well as bug fixes.

Calendar X goes way beyond other calendars. Calendar X is the successor to WunderMoosen's popular Calendar2000. If you are looking for a simple light weight calendar that can just show you the days and months on the standard Gregorian Calendar...THIS IS NOT IT!!!

What's New
Version 10.2.7:
  • Fixed probelm with Solar Details pre 1904.
  • Fixed a cosmetic problem with Persian dates in Info window when the date is before the begining of the Persian calendar era.
  • Applied a workaround for a Framework bug saving the main calendar window position on some systems.

As of 10.2.6:

  • Now a Universal Binary. Works on Intel and PPC Macs.
  • Fixed print in both MyCalendar and Main View.
  • Fixed Earth-Moon distance in Solar Details. The error was a labelling error - the distance reported was in earth radii units but was labelled: "km". We now convert the distance from radii to km. Also fixed typo for Right Ascension.
  • Appearance was defaulting to Brushed Metal for new users when it should have been Aqua.
  • Fixed leap year problem in Persian Calendar.
  • Fixed problem with some future dates on the Hebrew calendar.
  • Added Solar Details View to main calendar window.
  • Separated Sun Rise and Moon Rise charts and added WunderMoosen's unique graphical representation of Sun and Moon visibility.
  • Overhauled Diary and added new global search.
  • Desktop Calendar:
    • Now stays at the desktop level during Expose.
    • Made easier to grab and move You have to click in an opaque area and then drag while holding the mouse button down.
  • Fixed many minor issues.
  • Added preferences option to default to having the continuous spell checking active in the Diary. You can turn it off on the "Preferences->Diary->Options" panel.
  • In this release Calendar X defaults to the Aqua appearance. Although this is the default, you can change it back to the Brushed Metal appearance by checking "Preferences->Application Preferences->Options->Use Brushed Metal Appearance".
  • This is an interim release. There is a major upgrade of the product in the works.
  • Updated Software LIcense: Paying the license fee allows you the right to use one copy of the Software up to two computers for use by the same person such as a laptop and a workstation as long as both are not in use at the same time.

Heads Up for Macupdate Admin.

The link is now severed and the developers site has been taken down from the server.

FYI, this page:

It's not my intention to be critical of you or anyone else who reports issues like this as comments since I'm easily guilty of doing it at least as much. :)

I just happened to check the website for this software and there is a post regarding the programmer. Apparently he suffered a stroke and will be unable to maintain the software. All his software has been made freeware. Just go the website for more info.

Absolutely fantastic piece of software. I do have a couple of comments though:

1) It would be nice to be able to resize the entire app by dragging a corner to make it incrementally larger or smaller, like in PandoCalendar.

2) The Islamic calendar is a little weak, only providing Ramadan and Eid.

3) It would be nice if the calendar automatically made solar declination adjustments for low and high latitudes (I may be wrong about this).

4) The FAQ on the website mentions use of the system address book for compatibility (instead of Calendar 2000 format) but I can't find any working page on the site (a lot of site links produce errors) that explains where and how Address Book is used.

5) We can all agree that iCal lacks a lot of features, but it still would be nice if Calendar X hooked into iCal so that there was one place (Calendar X) that users entered their To Do's and Events (again, this issue could be covered in the website, but as there are a lot of pages that return errors, it is hard to tell).

Don't be fooled by the above issues. This is a great app and is in the process of maturing.

This is the best calendar software anywhere. That is in the sense of a device for time measurement. It has all of the calendar systems that you have heard of all parallel to each other and easily switchable. This can be used for diary-type purposes, but is best used for exploration of dates and research.

I also love the new features such as solar details and Chinese zodiac. This software is easily worth the money when you consider that it does the job of several other programs that are around, all in one very useful interface.

One thing does need fixing (although it is labelled as an interim release) is the Earth-Sun distance. My copy says it's 23 138.15633 km. I know that it's less than one AU right now, but not closer than the moon! (Spell 'ascension' correctly as well).

WARNING This software looks as if it has abandoned. I have yet to get in contact with the developer and get a response to my problem. I guess that license fee just flew out the window.

I sent the following to the developer, but have not received a response:

"I have just purchased Calendar X and have noticed that the console continually registers the following when the app is running:

This issue doesn't seem to be covered by the instalation issues PDF. I am running Calendar X on a G5 single with Tiger (10.4.11). What can I do to correct this issue? If nothing else, it is an anoyance log files get filled up with this garbage."

Calendar Xª is a unique multi-discipline calendar with diary, astronomical tables and ISO Week calculator/Day calculator. This release provides Universal Binary format and introduces several new features as well as bug fixes.

Calendar X goes way beyond other calendars. Calendar X is the successor to WunderMoosen's popular Calendar2000. If you are looking for a simple light weight calendar that can just show you the days and months on the standard Gregorian Calendar...THIS IS NOT IT!!!

Calendar X is a heavy duty perpetual calendar that offers views across many Calendar disciplines. It computes astronomical events (moon phases, blue moons, solstice, equinox, moon rise and set, sun rise & set) and displays the information according to the selected calendar system. It supports Julian, Gregorian (in many reforms), Jewish, Islamic, Bahai, Indian Civil, Mayan, Coptic, Ethiopic, Persian, Fasli, Shenshai and Qadimi, and Viking. Additionally it will also give date information in Julian, Gregorian, Jewish, Islamic, Bahai, Indian Civil, Mayan, Coptic, Ethiopic, Persian, Fasli, Shenshai, Qadimi, Viking, French Revolution, Roman, ISO Week and Julian Day Number.

Calendar X is useful as a general Calendar but it is really a must have tool for educational use. It gives historians and other researchers a set of powerful tools to continue their research. Anyone who is interested in other cultures and how those cultures mark time will find Calendar X an important aid. Heck, it is just plain fun. The goal of Calendar X is to not only provide useful daily information but to educate about history and what calendars have meant to mankind and why. Learn why calendars exist and how they are indispensable to civilization. Calendars were not invented just to keep everything from happening on the same day.
