LaunchBar 6.5

Objective Development has released LaunchBar 6.5 with updated support for OS X 10.11 El Capitan, including two themes that use the new system font and improved reliability for recent document indexing. The keyboard-based launcher also adds diversity options for emojis (and provides an option for choosing your preferred skin tone color), no longer displays computed ratings for iTunes tracks, fixes a bug that caused LaunchBar’s window to stay on screen after finishing text input with suggestions, improves how the LaunchBar window works with hidden menu bars, and resolves an issue that caused texts to be truncated on 10.9 Mavericks. ($29 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 13.3 MB, release notes, 10.9+)
