LaunchBar 5.6.2

Send Article to a Friend

Objective Development has released LaunchBar 5.6.2 with improvements in handling privacy settings in OS X 10.9 Mavericks as well as in the clipboard history ignore list. The keyboard-based launcher also adds a preference in Mavericks to ensure LaunchBar opens in the same display as the frontmost window and fixes an issue causing 1Password content not to appear in clipboard history. ($35 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 5.6 MB, release notes)
