Sidekick99 are there two versions, is so whats the difference.

I believe there are (2) versions of SK99, version 6.0 and
version 6.1. or 6.01. If this is so, what are their differences?
    Before finding this site I had no idea how many people
need and want sidekick support. The program is great and THIS SUPPORT FORUM, is of "Real Value." Thanks!

RE: Sidekick99 are there two versions, is so whats the difference.

Dear Richard,
The most obvious difference is that the 6.01 version of SK99 has a little paperclip in the top right hand corner of the open Card in Cardfile view.
If clicked upon, this opens the Contact Log/Cardfile Log
There is no Contact Log/Cardfile Log in the other version of SK99 as it was removed, Starfish thought we didn't want it (I don't remember being asked, do you?).
After a Little feedback they reinstated it.
From my own personal viewpoint I never liked SK99 with or without the Contact Log (though it does load quickly and has a very clean look)! I still prefer SK98 and (if they had brought out a Patch for it) I would prefer Internet Sidekick before any of the other versions.
When they reinstated the Contact log they didn't see fit to reinstate the Alt+W keyboard shortcut that opened and closed it...
There does still seem to be a future for us Sidekick junkies
at least until December 2029 when the Calendar runs out!!!
Then maybe I'll change
