Start your Mac App Store engines, 1Password 3.9.1 is out!

I want to start this post by thanking you. Our debut in the Mac App Store just under two months ago was a huge success, and that’s because of you. Then you gave us some great feedback that helped us overcome some challenges and make 1Password and its browser extension perform even better. To repay your wonderful deeds, our first major (and free!) update since arriving in the Mac App Store is now available, and it brings some handy new features and a whole lotta fixes.

1Password 3.9.1 has a bunch of new tricks up its sleeve, like support for the WebKit browser and Google Chrome Canary and Chromium. You can now double-click a different .AgileKeychain data file and 1Password will offer to replace your current file or merge the contents of both files together. We greatly improved the import process from SplashID, and a new Help > Troubleshooting menu has some useful tools for when things aren’t working quite right.

This huge update also fixes a handful of problems that some of you were seeing, from sidebar folders that won’t stay deleted, to faster syncing of changes you make between the app and browser extensions, and big performance improvements across the board. You can check out the full change log below, or just head over to the Mac App Store to update your copy or pick one up!
