Celebrating the official release of OS X Yosemite, AgileBits has released 1Password 5.0, a major update that brings improvements to 1Password mini and a multitude of fixes and improvements. 1Password 5.0 is fully compatible with Apple’s newly released operating system, including its new Dark Mode, and in fact requires Yosemite. The update also improves 1Password mini’s speed, and centers its display on your screen when the system-wide shortcut is triggered (Command-Option-). AgileBits also added support for using CloudKit sync, which requires the Mac App Store edition and 1Password for iOS 5.1 to ensure synchronization across your devices. (Check out this AgileBits support document for more information on syncing 1Password 5 over iCloud sync.) Other changes include the capability to sync attachments over Wi-Fi, a fix for a problem where the number of items on devices could have been different even after a successful sync, and a fix to ensure that the detached 1Password mini’s detail view window is resized to fit the content. If you have a 1Password 4 license, you can upgrade to 1Password 5 for free. AgileBits is also offering 1Password 5 at the reduced price of $35 from both its own Web site as well as the Mac App Store for a limited time. ($49.99 new with a 25 percent discount for TidBITS members when purchased from AgileBits, free update, 32.6 MB, release notes, 10.10+)
