Yojimbo 1.5 Released

Send Article to a Friend

Bare Bones Software has released Yojimbo 1.5, an update of its portmanteau organization program that's free for all registered users. Yojimbo 1.5 adds the capability to archive images within the program's database. Yojimbo can also store text and PDFs, and create Web archives, as well as provide fielded entries for passwords, serial numbers, and bookmarks. We first reviewed Yojimbo 1.0 in "Let Yojimbo Guard Your Information Castle" (2006-01-30), and the program has gradually increased its functionality - but not changed its fundamental nature - over the last two years.

Version 1.5 includes several fixes to improve performance in Leopard, has a new software update feature, and now feeds tags and and Yojimbo data types (like serial numbers) to Spotlight to be indexed. The company also says that searching and filtering speed has been greatly improved.

In the usual spirit of Bare Bones products, the release notes admonish users against attempting to use Yojimbo as a substitute for a photo-organizing program because "You'll make us cry."
