Merlin Project 7.1 runs natively on M1 Macs

Since 2004 - always a safe investment

News about Merlin Project

With Merlin Project, we are experiencing the second major processor change in these weeks. Already in 2005 we could successfully report during the WWDC that the changeover to the new technology is already completed.

So it is also in this case, when Apple switches step by step to its own M1 processors; again Merlin Project is at the forefront.

This is a very important signal to our users, as project management is a mission-critical discipline in many areas. And our users can rely on Merlin Project.

Apple plant innerhalb der nächsten 2 Jahre das komplette Produktportolio mit den Apple plans to equip the complete product portfolio with the company's own processors within the next 2 years. Already the first computers show a market-leading performance and make you want more. We have been testing Merlin Project since July this year and are more than satisfied in all areas.

But we will also not forget the users of Macs with Intel processors. Merlin Project will continue to be developed and maintained for this large installation base until further notice.

After the collaboration edition, this is already the second major update for our users this month, again free of charge. If you are not yet working with Merlin Project, test all functions 30 days free of charge. Download our software for the Mac here. You can find the iOS version in the App Store.

The Collaboration Edition

Merlin Project Is the Gold Standard in Project Management

The new Merlin Project 7 takes communication & documentation in projects to a whole new level. From now on there is no excuse to document your projects in detail. The brand new annotations can be used easily and elegantly in all projects, groups & phases, activities, resources, assignments and of course the attachments.

Annotations in Merlin Project

From now on, write down important things, explain or comment on what moves you in the project. No matter whether you work in the Gantt chart, on the kanban board or in the MindMap; the annotations are always just a mouse click away and always at the same position.

With this we underline once again that Merlin Project is the gold standard in project management on Mac, iPad and iPhone - which is a very nice customer quote that we use here!

Optimized For the New Operating Systems

Of course, we have updated the new version 7 on the Mac directly to the current version for macOS 11 Big Sur. We have redesigned the toolbar according to Apple's specifications, optimized every single symbol for Big Sur.

Together with the new spacing of menu items, the newly rounded windows and many features in the operating system, Merlin Project offers you a new experience - and still the same magic in your projects.

Of course the same has been done in the version for the iPad. The changes for iPadOS 14 were also implemented in Merlin Project 7:

  • Handwriting recognition in text fields
  • The interface was changed to standard symbols
  • The document browser is much tidier and thus much clearer

In addition, with the annotations, which are of course also available on the iPad, another previously missing feature has come from the Mac to the iPad: Conflicts and warnings are now displayed in a separate panel.

Merlin Project 7 requires at least macOS 10.13 or iOS 13. Our subscribers receive the new version free of charge as part of regular updates. New users test all functions 30 days at no charge. Download Merlin Project for the Mac here. You can find the iOS version in the App Store.

Since 2004, the international project management day is taking place on the first Thursday in November.

Initiated by Laverne Johnson and Lori Milhaven in collaboration with the team at the International Institute of Learning (IIL), its goal is the worldwide recognition of the work of the many project managers and project teams in all industries, including non-profit organizations and the health care sector, who put their time, energy, creativity, innovation and countless hours into providing products, services, facilities and emergency and disaster relief services in every city and community around the world. It recognizes the hard work of project managers and how much they contribute to ensuring that a project is completed efficiently and on time.

Kudos to all project managers worldwide - today is your day!
