Retrospective: One month of Lion and 1Password

It’s been just over a month since Apple released OS X Lion and quite literally reversed the definitions of “up” and “down”. At least when it comes to scrolling. And only if you don’t go to System Preferences > Trackpad/Mouse and disable “Natural Scrolling”. But I digress.

Time flies when you’re fervently updating 1Password and releasing all-new browser extensions for such massive releases as Safari 5.1, Firefox 6.0, and Chrome 143.28.852, or whatever version they’re up to today. In fact, when I tally everything up, we’ve released over 40 updates in the past five weeks across our Mac, Windows, Safari, Firefox, and Chrome editions of 1Password—and that doesn’t even include beta releases for testing! But that long list of updates *does* include a completely redesigned extension interface and a lot of improvements, changes, nips, tucks, and bug fixes—all thanks to your awesome feedback in our forum.

Big transitions like new OS X releases—especially one like Lion which made so many major changes to both over- and under-the-hood technologies—and Firefox 6 are never easy, and we know 1Password has had a bumpy ride over the last month. I want to thank you all for your great feedback in our forum and here on the blog, as well as your patience as we fix bugs and polish 1Password to be a great Lion and cross-browser citizen.

Moving forward, we have a lot of great stuff in store. Our top priorities are polishing the new extension for all platforms (including getting it ready for Windows browsers!), improving the Firefox 6 experience, and bringing the extension to Chrome. Of course, we have a couple other buns in the oven, but we’re not quite ready to get the butter out of the fridge, if you follow my meaning. Wink wink, nudge nudge.

Thanks again for being the best customers a small software shop could ask for. We’ll keep the 1Password updates coming, and we can’t wait to hear from you in our forum.

    Hey, thank you. I bought this about 2 years ago and you’ve more than lived up to your end of the bargain. I feel that I have received an amazing amount of value for my purchase. I’m happy to keep taking the free updates, but I’ll be the first online when you decide it’s time for a paid upgrade.

      I agree, Dieter. That cracks me up every time. Thanks so much for the kind words! :)
