TidBITS Watchlist: Notable Software Updates for 22 August 2016

LaunchBar 6.7.2 — Objective Development has released LaunchBar 6.7.2, fixing bugs and improving compatibility with macOS 10.12 Sierra. In addition, the new version gains a Preferred Input Source option that lets the user choose a keyboard input source to be used instead of the currently active input source while LaunchBar is active. This could be useful to those who work with numerous different keyboards. Fixed bugs include an incompatibility with the Git client Tower, an incorrect checksum calculation for large files, a broken Browse Ulysses action, and a crash in LaunchBar’s Action Editor. ($29 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 14.1 MB, release notes, 10.9+)
