AgileBits has released 1Password 4.4.1, which now keeps one backup of your 1Password database from each month for up to two years. The password manager continues to run a daily backup (if data is changed), but now rolls over to the single monthly backup after 30 daily backups. It also adds support for WhiteHat Aviator, a free Web browser developed by WhiteHat Security that turns on private browsing, ad blocking, and Do Not Track functionality by default. The update also improves the Password Generator in 1Password mini so it can generate passwords up to 50 characters, makes the last date that Watchtower was updated visible (Preferences > Watchtower), shortens delays in displaying the mini details view popover, fixes a sync issue that caused CPU usage to spike in conjunction with 1Password mini, reduces log file sizes (following introduction of a bug in version 4.4 that increased their size), and updates translations. ($49.99 new with a 25 percent discount for TidBITS members when purchased from AgileBits, also available from the Mac App Store, free update, 38.9 MB, release notes, 10.8+)
Single Time Machine Backups
Tired of Time Machine running all the time? You can turn it off in the Time Machine preference pane, but still initiate a single backup by choosing Back Up Now from Time Machine's menu bar icon. Of course, your backup is much less likely to be up to date, but Time Machine won't be taking any resources while you're trying to work.
