TidBITS Watchlist: Notable Software Updates for 10 August 2015

OmniOutliner 4.3 — The Omni Group has released OmniOutliner 4.3 with a focus on exporting data from the outline and information organization app. The update adds a PowerPoint (PPTX) export format that’s similar to the older Keynote export but with some enhancements for basic style support, as well as a new CSV format that pulls the separator character from the system based on what region it is set to. OmniOutliner Pro also receives an improved XSLT export plug-in that enables you to output multiple files as well as outputting one file per each first level row in the document, plus improvements to DOCX format exports. Both releases also fix a crash that could occur when removing the display title for a hyperlink, and they properly enable insertion of an image dragged from a Web browser rather than creating a hyperlink to it, as OmniOutliner did previously. ($49.99 new for standard edition (Mac App Store), $99.99 for Pro edition (Mac App Store), free update, 24 MB, release notes, 10.9+)

Postbox 4.0.3Postbox has issued version 4.0.3 of its eponymous email client, a maintenance release that provides several improvements and bug fixes. The update adds URL autocompletion in the Quick Bar (which can be accessed by pressing Command-L in the Compose window; learn more about the Quick Bar from the Postbox blog), and URLs are automatically linked. Additionally, Postbox enhances how Topics are assigned in the Quick Bar, remembers your full-screen preference when quitting the app, fixes a bug that prevented Reply-All from adding all addresses in Summarize mode, resolves a problem where message selection could be lost after a Quick Move or when assigning Topics, fixes a bug that removed all labels if just one label was removed, and ensures that the dictionary in the French localization loads properly. ($15 new, free update, 25.5 MB, release notes, 10.9+)
