Earlier this week, Objective Development released LaunchBar 6.1.4 with a variety of bug fixes for the keyboard-based launcher. However, the in-app update for version 6.1.4 caused some users (including TidBITS staffer Michael Cohen) to lose all indexes. Objective Development quickly pulled that release and issued LaunchBar 6.1.5 soon thereafter, noting that the 6.1.5 should solve any issues of data loss experienced by those who applied the 6.1.4 update. LaunchBar 6.1.5 also adds support for third-party sharing services (accessible via the Actions indexing rule), automatically formats displayed phone numbers, fixes an incompatibility with 1Password 5, squashes a bug relating to hovering above the action menu button in OS X 10.10 Yosemite, prevents the Command-A keyboard shortcut from creating a multiple selection when the item list is closed, and improves reliability of automatic index updates for some indexing rules.
