The Omni Group has released OmniFocus 2.12, bringing limited compatibility with test builds of OmniFocus 3 that adds improved calculations for the more complicated repeat rules coming in the new upgrade, expected later in 2018. The task management app is now smarter about creating the next instance of a repeating item when completing Due Again or Defer Another items ahead of time. The update also resolves a problem where the Inspector Notes field sometimes showed no content, fixes a bug that caused the Focus pop-up to appear behind the Perspectives window, ensures repeating actions are once again published to the OmniFocus reminders calendar without repeat rules, and addresses a couple of crashes. Once you’ve updated all devices running OmniFocus (including OmniFocus 2.22 for iOS), you’ll be prompted to migrate to a newly introduced database format. ($39.99 new for Standard and $79.99 for Pro from the Omni Group Web site, $39.99 for Standard from Mac App Store with in-app purchase option to upgrade to Pro, 31.9 MB, release notes, 10.12+)
