Release notes:

The number of permitted fields for some field types has, once again, increased in this version.

The appearance of the rating field has changed slightly.

Help > DataOrganizer Help now opens the Getting Started Videos page in your chosen browser.

Remaining known issues that were not fixed in this beta:

Although DataOrganizer “supports” Mojave’s dark mode, it looks terrible at the moment.

There seems to be a “permission problem” with contacts and calendar events. Like iOS, macOS will ask you for permission before accessing your contacts and calendar information. This works fine on High Sierra. However, Mojave seemingly denies access without asking, rendering the contacts and events fields useless at the moment.

For reasons that I have yet to figure out, a crash appears to occur in the sidebar/source list. (It is also possible that the crash is really occurring in a relationship field’s library/stack chooser, as it uses the same code as the source list.) DataOrganizer tries to insert a stack (in a library) below a stack that does not exist.

DataOrganizer may crash when attempting to drag a new field out of the field bar. This bug may be related to (the same?) source list bug mentioned above.
