    "It's now FREE!"

    July 25, 2005  |   By John.Wilkinson


    Konfabulator is amazing...the latest 2.0 release adds several new advanced features, including enhanced transparency abilities, and it requires even less system resources. In addition, their gallery contains tons of third-party widgets....everything from the weather and stock quotes to RSS feeds and cute animations.

    Oh, and by the way....IT'S NOW FREE! Yahoo! announced today that they have purchased the three-man company and will be giving the software out for free...with no catches. (If you bought version 2.0+, they're even giving you a refund!) In addition, they plan to integrate it with Yahoo! services to make it even more advanced. Go to konfabulator.com and see the announcement for yourself. Enjoy!


    Up until now, you had to pay $20 for it!

    Just like to note what limitations existed before. Every time you launched the application, you would receive a medium-sized nag screen (in widget form), and could close it by clicking the "X." After the trial expired, the nag screen could not be closed or moved off screen, and would appear over top of any other windows you had open. Now, there won't be a nag screen to begin with!
