Apple rolls out more MobileMe fixes

Apple this week quietly updated its MobileMe internet service with a new round of bug fixes and enhancements targeting Contacts, Calendar, Gallery, iDisk, and more.

The improvements were detailed in a support document published to the company's website Monday and include the following:

Contacts
  • Searching for contacts in a large address book (more than 1000 contacts) is faster and no longer results in a "slow script" browser alert message

  • Exported vCards with multi-line addresses or notes can now be imported into the Mac OS X Address Book

  • Adds keyboard shortcut to create a new contact

  • Additional formatting options for European phone numbers are now supported

Calendar
  • Adds sorting of To Do items by calendar or title

  • Long event titles now appear properly in Month view

Gallery
  • Updated "Tell a friend" email message

  • Resolves an issue related to setting a new album's key photo

iDisk
  • Files and folder names that contain Japanese language characters now display properly on the web

Account
  • Hosting of iWeb pages can be configured for personal domains ending in ".eu", ".ax", ".tl", ".gw", ".kp", ".rs" or ".su"

  • Family Member accounts now display the accurate renewal/expiration date

  • Resolves an issue that prevented some members from using an activation key (MobileMe box) to renew a subscription

Login
  • "Keep me logged in for two weeks" checkbox now works reliably
