The Omni Group has released OmniFocus 2.7 with the added capability to specify an encryption passphrase separate from your sync password. The company recommends that you set a different encryption passphrase only after you are running at least OmniFocus 2.16 on all of your iOS devices and OmniFocus 2.7 on all of your Macs. The task management app also updates the pasteboard format to match the TaskPaper format used by OmniFocus for iOS, fixes compatibility issues with macOS 10.12 Sierra, routes all sync pushes through Apple’s push service, fixes a crash that occurred when clicking a note or attachment, and adds new Preferences icons. ($39.99 new for Standard and $79.99 for Pro from the Omni Group Web site, $39.99 for Standard from Mac App Store (with in-app purchase option to upgrade to Pro), 29.5 MB, release notes, 10.10+)
