Delicious Monster has released Delicious Library 2.0, a major upgrade to their cataloging software for Mac OS X. Priced at $US40, it’s a $US20 upgrade for registered users.

Delicious Library helps you maintain an up-to-date catalogue of CDs, DVDs, books, video games and other material. It can read barcodes from packages, either by using a barcode scanner (sold separately) or using an iSight camera or other webcam, if connected. You can also input the information manually, if you need to. The software connects to to get bookshelf information, but keeps it all stored locally in its own database.

Version 2.0 adds dozens of new features, such as one-click web publishing to .Mac and connectivity with Transmit; many new categories; rules-based “Smart Shelves;” better performance for large libraries and fast graphics with Mac OS X v10.5.3; export to iPhone; Bonjour sharing; improved iSight scanning; auto-pair and auto-connect for Bluetooth scanners; autocomplete improvements; currency conversion; new cover graphics; new fields for items and many other changes.

System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.3 or later — certain features now depend on Mac OS X v10.5 “Leopard,” and some new graphic features require Mac OS X v10.5.3, which had not yet been released as we posted this article.
