Or for the Terminal geeks:

If you allow the system to reindex your files for a while, Merlin project files will appear in the “Documents” area.

Today we’ve released a new free Merlin update. The Merlin 2.9 update brings various improvements and more stability. It is recommended for all Merlin and Merlin Server users.
With Mountain Lion Apple introduces a new technology called “Gatekeeper”. Gatekeeper helps protect you from downloading and installing malicious software on your Mac, no matter where your apps come from. And it gives you even more control over which apps you install. With the standard option Gatekeeper installs only apps from the Mac App Store and apps from identified developers. Merlin and Merlin Server are now signed by ProjectWizards as an indentified developer and working with the Gatekeeper default option under OS X Mountain Lion.
We highly recommend users of OS X Mountain Lion to install this update.
Updating existing installations of Merlin Server: The formerly contained certificate is now replaced by the new one verified by Apple. Therefore the very first time you start Merlin Server, you will be asked to allow accessing Keychain for the existing certificate to be replaced. Please click on “Allow always”.

Over the past few weeks I’ve been able to give a few presentations about doing project management on the Mac and on the iPad. I had a few requests so I thought I would post them.
The first is the presentation I gave in the Philadelphia Walnut St. Apple Store on how to manage projects using a Mac: Managing Projects on a Mac.
The second is the one I gave at the PMI Lehigh Valley Professional Development Day on how to use the iPad as a Project Management tool: The iPad and Project Management

Last year when Apple unveiled the iPad, I, along with countless others were overcome with that all too familiar craving for new gear from Cupertino. Having tried and quickly abandoned several tablets running the other operating system, I was hopeful that the iPad would gain the acceptance it has rightfully earned, but as a project manager, I was mostly curious about how this new device would fit in with my job. The Windows tablets I had tried in the past always seemed to make my job harder. So, when I purchased it, I wasn’t exactly sure what I was going to do it… but like I said… The craving…
Since then I’ve found a number of ways the original iPad enables me in managing projects and best of all, I’m able to use it with Merlin. And now, we have the iPad 2. (more…)

These are some of the photos we’ve got from our developers attending this year’s WWDC:
Does this sound like my parents went to Saint Francisco and all I got was this lousy T-Shirt?
Not a fitting comparison if you ask me… We are very excited and looking forward to hearing from them upon their return. There is surely so much to tell about interesting new developments, attended workshops, new connections to other developers or the applications presented and how all this new knowledge and experience can influence Merlin‘s further development.

One lays a bit longer in bed at Christmas, and finds the new year already in full swing when awaking. But wait. Our hibernation was not that deep, we simply granted ourselves a short break. 2009 was after all the most active year in our young history.
Directly on its begin, January 2009, we were in the Macworld and presented Merlin iPhone to the interested visitors.
