An update to Ultralingua's version 7 for Mac is available at Ultralingua! In addition to verb conjugation, full-screen core-animation flashcards, and integrated discussion forums, version 7.1.6 contains miscellaneous bug fixes and supports Ultralingua's new Klingon-English dictionary.

If you are a current Ultralingua 7 for Mac user, your update to version 7.1.6 is free! To get the free update, simply choose "Check for Updates" under your Ultralingua menu. You'll see one window titled "Software Update" describing the new version.

If you see both windows, then follow these steps for a successful installation:

  1. In the "Dictionary Updates" window, click the "Download Now" button. This will install the latest dictionary data.
  2. Then, in the "Software Update" window, click the "Install Update" button. This will install the 7.1.6 version.
  3. After the update is complete, click the "Install and Relaunch" button. Ultralingua will close, then re-open with 7.1.6 installed and your new dictionary data ready for use.
  4. If you only see the "Software Update" window, then simply click the "Install Update" button followed by the "Install and Relaunch" button.

If you have an older version of Ultralingua for Mac, you can upgrade for only $19.95.
