Objective Development has released LaunchBar 6.2, chock full of bug fixes and refinements, including new staging capabilities. The keyboard-based launcher enables you to select multiple items from the result list via drag-and-drop, and those staged items can be dragged from LaunchBar to other applications. The update also brings support for the recently released Fantastical 2 calendar app (see “Fantastical 2 Aims to Replace Apple’s Calendar,” 27 March 2015), improves indexing of iCloud Documents and iCloud Drive, tweaks Instant Calculate to better distinguish between phone numbers and arithmetic expressions, fixes a bug that caused pasting clipboard items into Safari form fields to fail, improves background execution of AppleScripts, and fixes an issue that caused Clipboard History to stop working.
