As you may have heard, Apple has a new kitty called Mountain Lion on the way, due out sometime in July. Apple’s site naturally brags about things like “over 200+ new features” and “more, better, faster,” but I’m sure your top question is: “but will 1Password be ready?!”
The short and sweet answer is: like Terry Benedict, 1Password was born ready. Ok, maybe’s that’s going a bit far. I mean, the first version of 1Password, released over six years ago, was actually born and raised on OS X 10.4 Tiger and missing a vowel. And a consonant.
So let me try this again: as of recent updates to both the Mac App Store and website versions, 1Password is ready for Mountain Lion and even Gatekeeper, a new OS X feature that gives you more control over what apps your Mac can run. If you want to learn more about Gatekeeper, our Chief Defender Against the Dark Arts penned a couple of posts to give you a general overview and more details on this important OS X addition in Mountain Lion.
Of course, your decision to upgrade to a major new OS release probably rests on a number of other apps being ready as well. After all, not every app can be ready on day one, so don’t be afraid to do a little homework before taking the plunge. But as far as AgileBits factors in, you can rest assured that 1Password been ready for Mountain Lion for a while now!
