[prMac.com] Toronto (Ontario, Canada) - 1Password 3.2.5 includes multiple bug fixes and important improvements. These include a change to the auto-submit feature - which fills and submits login forms automatically - to prevent the form from being instantly submitted if it contains a text field, as found in the comment areas of blogs such as The Unofficial Apple Weblog and others. This has been an issue for blog commenters in the past, and Agile Web Solutions is excited to offer a solution to the problem!
1Password 3.2.5 also brings usability and interface enhancements, including a new dialog with instructions for updating the browser plugins when it encounters an unknown version of a browser, such as the recent release of Safari 5. Among other fixes and changes, support for additional HTML5 form fields (url and number) is included, as well as fixes for display issues when re-typing an unlock password over a failed attempt.
What's New in 1Password 3.2.5:
[NEW] Now displaying upgrade instructions when an unsupported browser version is encountered. I.e. when a new version of Safari is released.
[CHANGED] Now deselecting source list item during global search to make it clear that all item types are being searched.
[CHANGED] Minor log wording change to tell people how to activate extensions if desired. Also using both Console and 1PasswordAgent.log in these situations.
[CHANGED] Now disabling preferences in 1Password > Preferences > Browsers when browser extensions are disabled.
[CHANGED] Improved string validation of object title to eliminate newline characters (including unicode characters).
[CHANGED] Added support for url and number HTML 5 form field types.
[FIXED] Fixed a bug where contentsHash for newly saved logins was calculated incorrectly. In this case, syncing would result in incorrect conflicts being reported.
[FIXED] Improved reliability of bookmarklet creation.
[FIXED] Fixed problem with strong password generator resetting to 50 character long passwords with each use.
[FIXED] Improved performance, fixed some small memory leaks.
[FIXED] Fixed broken Help buttons in Updates and Login Preference panes and added new Help buttons to General, Security, and Browsers panes.
[CHANGED] No longer automatically submitting Logins if the web form has a text area field (for example, to avoid autosubmit on blog comment forms).
[CHANGED] Improved drawing of password text in unlock screen when re-typing over an incorrect password.
[CHANGED] Double clicking a revealed password in 1PasswordAnywhere will no longer select the Hide button. This makes copying easier and more robust as the old way would add the word "Hide" to the end of the copied password.
