Yojimbo 1.2 Improves Import, Export, and Linking

Yojimbo 1.2 Improves Import, Export, and Linking -- Bare Bones Software has released a significant update to Yojimbo, the company's personal information manager (for details, see our review, "Let Yojimbo Guard Your Information Castle"). Yojimbo 1.2 enables users to link directly to Yojimbo items using the new Copy Item Link command in the Edit menu; it puts an x-yojimbo-item URL pointing to the selected item in the clipboard, suitable for use on the local machine (it's not providing Internet sharing of any sort). Also new are a pair of bookmarklets (JavaScript scripts that can be embedded in a Web browser bookmark) for one-click creation of Yojimbo bookmarks and Web archives (in Safari, Camino, Firefox, and OmniWeb), an enhanced "import" verb in AppleScript, export of bookmarks as clipping files rather than text files, search term highlighting when the search includes item contents, an integrated crash reporter, and the capability to remember the Check Spelling As You Type setting across application launches (something that should be true of every application). For those new to Yojimbo or anyone who has had trouble understanding it, Bare Bones now provides a Quick Start Movie (check the Help menu if you're already using Yojimbo) and a Getting Started document that provides an overview of Yojimbo's features. Yojimbo 1.2 requires Mac OS X 10.4.3 or later and is a free update for registered users; it's a 7 MB download. [ACE]
