AgileBits has released 1Password 3.7.2, a minor update to its password and identity management app that continues the company’s quest to provide a seamless experience to users of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. Since version 3.6.0, 1Password has been working on compatibility with the new Safari 5.1 and now sports an all-new Safari extension that has received several improvements with the latest release. In addition, AgileBits has added the capability to provide better diagnostic reports and improved error handling, with a particular focus on wireless synchronization. Numerous bug fixes and performance improvements round out the update. ($39.99 new, free update, 17.1 MB, release notes)
Not mentioned in the brief article is the massive number of negative comments created by this release. I do realize they didn't have a lot of time to come up with a new version, and they are slowly fixing the most blatant problems. But I still like the simplicity of the old version.
I do NOT like the fact that I now have to open 1P EACH time I want to use it. Much easier the 'old' way - click on the icon in the tool bar and it logged onto the site where needed.
No discussion of not supporting Firefox 5.0.1
There's a limit to what we can (a) notice when it's not called out in release notes and (b) include in what is intended to be a short update. But that's what comments are for - you can add useful information to the article. So what's the problem with Firefox 5.0.1?
