LaunchBar 5.6.4

Send Article to a Friend

Objective Development has released version 5.6.3 of LaunchBar with an improved Open Location feature for use with Web browsers; it now enables you to switch between secure (https) and non-secure (http) URL schemes, set an option to prefer secure URLs, and define whether URLs automatically begin with the “www” prefix. The keyboard-based launcher also improves pasting of snippets as well as name suggestion for newly created snippets, fixes issues with Clipboard History, and fixes detection of the currently playing song if the song is available only in iTunes Match. A quick 5.6.4 release fixes a crash that occurred at startup. ($35 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 5.6 MB, release notes, 10.6.8+)
