June 1, 2008 in Software (E)

[] Toronto (Ontario, Canada) - Agile Web Solutions today announced the release of 1Password 2.6.3 with new Autosave in Safari, new Strong Password Generator window, ability to generate non-web passwords, and other improvements. This update is free to all paid 1Password customers.

What is 1Password?
* The most widely used password manager for Mac OS X (according to MacUpdate, VersionTracker and iusethis ratings).
* A Macworld magazine "Mac Gem", rated 4.5/5 mice and nominated for a Macworld Readers' Choice Award.
* The only password manager with integrated anti-phishing technology.
* An automatic form filler with support for credit cards and multiple identities.
* A highly secure database to keep track of logins, secure notes, identities, credit cards, bank accounts, and software registration information.

What is new in Version 2.6.3?

* Autosave window is now using a non-modal 'slide down' strip:
The Autosave prompt in Safari and other Web Kit browsers is now using a non-modal slide-down strip. It lets you verify that the login information is correct before deciding to save it. Firefox and other Mozilla-based browsers will act similarly in a future update.

* Strong Password Generator Improvements:
New in this release is the ability to access the Strong Password Generator inside the 1Password application. The generator also sports a refreshed user interface.

* New Copy to clipboard features:
This release adds the ability to copy selected 1Password objects to the clipboard as text. Pasting this text back into 1Password will create a new item. Command-C, Command-V, and Command-X keyboard shortcuts are all available and behave how you would expect. For example, objects can now be moved between folders using Command-X, selecting the new folder, and then pressing Command-V.

* New Check For Updates:
The new Check for Updates window adds support for multiple download sites and an 'inline' progress indicator allowing users to read the Release Notes while the update is being downloaded.
