If you are interested in looking at another program to see how their menu location is implemented, take a look at WeatherPop. I am using version 2.6.1 and it is appearing in the menu bar as well.
Just downloaded WeatherPop and poked around in its resources. WeatherPop does something pretty interesting. Like NUDC, looks like their menu is implemented using MenuExtraEnabler. But if MEE isn't working, they fall back to using an NSStatusItem, which has a number of limitations vs a menu extra (can't drag it; it always appears at the left of the list; is implemented as part of an app rather than as a menu bundle loaded into the System UI Server). For info, see: http://weatherpop.com/?page_id=3#question87
Thanks for the heads up!

We'll be doing further testing with the released version of Leopard in the days ahead. Apple does not seed developers with the final release, and they tend to make a lot of changes in the weeks leading up to a release. If anyone finds bugs, please report them to [url=mailto:email@example.com]mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org[/url].
Thanks, I have let support know but for those reading this blog; I'm running NUTD 5.3.1 on a macbook 2Gig C2D and have just installed Leopard.
Very sad to find out QuickContact doesn't work and since the icons also don't appear in the menu bar any more it means keeping quick contact open all the time to access numbers.
Now contact talks to the server running on the same machine, But Now up to date won't recognise it's server.
Did either of you have to reinstall in Leopard to get these menu items showing?
No, Just go into the Preferences in each NUD and NC and toggle the check mark for the QD or QC icon to display in the menubar.
HOWEVER, they are not in the menu bar when you start up or re-boot. They need to be reactivated using this procedure each day. But, like I said Quick Day shows up but does not work. Quick Contact is operational though.
Also, want to note I am running on a PPC 1.67 MHZ PowerBook platform
