[prMac.com] Toronto (Ontario, Canada) - Knox makes securing your files easier than ever by making it simple to create encrypted vaults and open them with ease. Knox 2.0.3 brings a 50% reduction in the size of the application, as well as fixes to cut launch time in half and improve operation when running as a menubar application. The "Knox bubble" that brought attention to the menu item after launch has been replaced with a simpler animation, and launching the application in menubar mode no longer shows the Knox icon in the Dock while launching.
Support for Beta builds has also been added to Knox, allowing users to opt-in to the beta program. Users who choose to be on the cutting edge of Knox development can easily stay up-to-date with the latest builds, and provide valuable feedback during the ongoing development of Knox.
This version also fixes an issue that caused users to be unable to turn off the auto-update feature, as well as minor text inconsistencies in the About Knox and Preferences > Version windows.
What's New in Knox 2.0.3:
[NEW] Added support for Beta builds.
[CHANGED] Changed how Knox handles Dock vs Menu mode to prevent the Knox icon from appearing on the Dock temporarily before moving to the main menu.
[CHANGED] Reduced Knox application size by 50%
[CHANGED] No longer showing the "Knox bubble" when launching in the menu bar. Showing a progress throbber instead which is less obvious but should still draw enough attention.
