OmniFocus 2.1

The Omni Group has released OmniFocus 2.1 with changes to the user interface to more closely match OS X 10.10 Yosemite, including new toolbar icons and “incorporating vibrancy where appropriate.” The Getting Things Done-inspired task management app adds Today and Share extensions (found in the iOS version of OmniFocus for iPad and iPhone), adds support for Find and Replace in actions (in addition to notes), enables you to share text from actions via the toolbar share button, reduces the minimum window width, and attempts to use English relative date names when localized relative date names can’t be parsed. OmniFocus 2.1 also updates its system requirements to a minimum of 10.10 Yosemite, but file format and syncing remain compatible with all previous versions of OmniFocus for Mac and iOS. ($39.99 new for Standard edition and $79.99 for Pro edition from The Omni Group Web site, $39.99 for Standard edition from Mac App Store (with in-app purchase option to upgrade to Pro), 37.7 MB, release notes, 10.9.2+)
