1Password 6.5.1

AgileBits has released 1Password 6.5.1 with a couple of new features aimed at the new MacBook Pro (see “New MacBook Pros Add Context-sensitive Touch Bar,” 27 October 2016). These include support for unlocking the password management utility with your fingerprint via the integrated Touch ID sensor and enhanced controls available in the Touch Bar. The update also improves integration for searching your vaults with apps like Alfred and LaunchBar, adds the capability to copy 1Password Documents across 1Password.com accounts, improves filling of credit card expiration dates, enables you to manage your 1Password account subscription within the app, automatically resizes 1Password mini’s menu width to fit long browser extension names, and fixes a number of crashes. ($64.99 new from AgileBits and the Mac App Store with a 25 percent discount for TidBITS members when purchased from AgileBits, free update, 44.3 MB, release notes, 10.10+)
