LaunchBar 6.1.5

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Earlier this week, Objective Development released LaunchBar 6.1.4 with a variety of bug fixes for the keyboard-based launcher. However, the in-app update for version 6.1.4 caused some users (including TidBITS staffer Michael Cohen) to lose all indexes. Objective Development quickly pulled that release and issued LaunchBar 6.1.5 [1] soon thereafter, noting that the 6.1.5 should solve any issues of data loss experienced by those who applied the 6.1.4 update. LaunchBar 6.1.5 also adds support for third-party sharing services (accessible via the Actions indexing rule), automatically formats displayed phone numbers, fixes an incompatibility with 1Password 5, squashes a bug relating to hovering above the action menu button in OS X 10.10 Yosemite, prevents the Command-A keyboard shortcut from creating a multiple selection when the item list is closed, and improves reliability of automatic index updates for some indexing rules.
