Yojimbo 3.0.3

Send Article to a Friend

Bare Bones Software has released Yojimbo 3.0.3, a maintenance update to its information organization tool. This release fixes a bug where deleting a tag would cause subsequent tags to be limited to one character, as well as a problem with the Sidekick preference pane when running in Mac OS X 10.5. It also fixes bugs related to synchronizing and pairing with the Yojimbo iPad app, including failure to sync changes to Note items and excessive growth in the .DeviceSyncEvents.queue file size if pairing had been dropped (or was nonexistent) between the desktop software and the iPad app. To support these fixes, Yojimbo for iPad 1.0.4 has also been released. ($38.99 new, free update, 7.2 MB, release notes)
