  - New skin added: FrozenCalenz. New visual added: Radiant
  - International Holidays for year 2002 are available at the download page
- 15/12/2001 - Fixed a link to SpaceBlobs visual, the previous one was Spaceblobs... an error in case sensitivity, sorry for the error.
- 28/10/2001 - Have neglected this site for quite long... My second year in University is now more hectic. Nevertheless, when my exams are over, I will be putting up Calenz as a FREEWARE! Keep a lookout for the freeware version at the end of 2001. I will be signing up some affiliate programs to help me pay for calenz.com. Please help me by supporting these affiliates...
- 16/04/2001 - A patch for Calenz: Fixes an 'access violation error' that occurs sometimes when Calenz exits.
- 30/03/2001 - A rare chance to update... New skin to download: Aquaz.

2000

- 15/12/2000 - Added Year 2001 Holidays for data importing in the download page.
- 11/12/2000 - Version 1.2 is available. Allows a British/American date setting and symbols with the display of special days in the calendar. See the details of the new features in the 'download' page.
- 23/11/2000 - Was busy with school and exams, not been updating much. A new exe patch is available that fixes the startup code in Calenz. The previous version did not run properly in Windows NT and hopefully it works now...(see the 'download' page). Also, the shareware restriction on adding events only in year 2000 is lifted.
Change of registration policy here. Now, I offer THREE licenses for the same price, that means 3 serial numbers for a registration file. That means you pay for ONE file (with your name) but this file allows you to run the full version on at most 3 PCs. (see the 'register' page). *** Note that existing registered users who already paid for one serial in one file can request additional serials (up to 2) from me, just email me your request and registration number/details.
Calenz will be not a freeware software, at least for now, unless there are people or companies willing to pay for all my web hosting fees. Or maybe I had put in too much effort in Calenz to give it away free...
- 16/09/2000 - New skin by Tananda added: SRS Blue.
- 01/09/2000 - New skin and scheme added: PDA and PDASeaBlue.
- 31/08/2000 - A patch for the exe file that fixes a date error: "Invalid argument to date encode".
-28/07/2000 - A new skin is added: Calenz2000. Not updating much already, school has started... I have noticed that people tend to download the 'more popular' skins ie. skins with a higher number of downloads. This is rather mis-leading as new skins all have an initial download count of 0. What's more, more downloads don't mean that the skins are nicer... Another thing is that schemes are being downloaded but I don't think I have that many registered users. 'Schemes' can only be used in the REGISTERED version.
- 02/07/2000 - A minor font style patch for the exe file. New skin added: Blackz. I would appreciate submissions of skin designs. The shareware version can be skinned also.
- 28/06/2000 - Calenz version 1.1 and Calenz Designer version 1.1 are available. Check the download page for more details. New skin available: RustedMetal, which uses the Arial font instead of the default MS Sans Serif. To view this skin properly, you should download Calenz version 1.1.
- 27/06/2000 - Added more data files for importing in the download page. Added more links in the links page.
- 23/06/2000 - A new intro image for www.calenz.com.
- 18/06/2000 - A total make-over for the web site! A new default skin that resembles the design at www.calenz.com is now available!
- 15/06/2000 - New skin by Tananda Green: Chrome Calenz
- 11/06/2000 - Modified the shareware version such that all skins and visuals can be used, instead of 4 skins and visuals only. However, random skins and visuals will appear in the selection boxes. You can try to 'skin' Calenz using the shareware version too. Download the Calenz Designer if you wish to skin. Other shareware restrictions still apply.
- 09/06/2000 - New skin: Futuristix. New schemes: FuturistixLook1, FuturistixLook2 and FuturistixLook3.
- 07/06/2000 - New skin: AlienDevice. New scheme: MutantDevice.
- 06/06/2000 - Online payment system ready! The credit card payment page is provided by a US company called Kagi. See further instructions in the 'register' page.
New visuals available: DanceOfFire and Particles - Bouncing.
New skin available: BlueGreen.
- 31/05/2000 - Change of registration policy: Only Singaporeans can send cheques and money orders to me. Overseas customers are to use the online credit card payment page that will be available in 1 or 2 weeks. The cost of registering is fixed at US$10 and there no discounts for subsequent buys. But locals can purchase a copy for just S$10 at a reduced price. This is because foreign checks are not worthed to be cashed (the bank takes a fee for this) unless I am dealing with a large amount.
- 29/05/2000 - An exe patch for minor bugs is added to the 'download' page. This is should be where all future updates to the program are located. Please inform me of any bugs you have spotted.
- 25/05/2000 - Added a bolded paragraph in the 'register' page. I do not wish to end up with checks that I cannot cash at all.
- 24/05/2000 - New skin added - Sci-Fic
- 22/05/2000 - Guestbook added! Feel free to post your comments. The link is at the bottom of this page in case you didn't notice. A data download section is added to the 'download' page.
- 19/05/2000 - Replaced the Calenz setup file that does not allow Calenz to run! Some people experienced the error message: 'Program terminated: calenz.exe has been modified'. But I have tried the previous exe file on some other PCs and it worked though. Funny...
- 13/05/2000 - Fixed minor bugs for applying schemes on skins with bitmap buttons and the events list. You can download the Calenz setup again if you want to. New skin - RED available.
- 11/05/2000 - New skin and scheme added, NewAge and a GoldenAge scheme.
- Calenz launches on 10/05/2000!
