Bare Bones Software Releases Yojimbo 1.2
New “Copy Item Link” Command Helps Customers Harness Yojimbo’s
Power For Use In Concert With Other Productivity Tools

BEDFORD, Mass. – June 7, 2006 – Bare Bones Software, developer of leading-edge power tools for Mac OS X, today released Yojimbo 1.2, an update to their reliable, effortless information organizer.

Yojimbo 1.2 features a new “Copy Item Link” command that enables Yojimbo customers to place links to Yojimbo items in other applications, such as iCal.

“‘Copy Item Link’ allows customers to harness Yojimbo’s power to work in concert with any desired productivity tool,” said Rich Siegel, founder and CEO of Bare Bones Software.

The Yojimbo 1.2 update also includes a pair of bookmarklets that facilitate bookmarking or archiving a page to Yojimbo with a single click. To further enhance the ease of Yojimbo’s powerful searching, version 1.2 now highlights search terms when displaying the results of a search.

A new “Quick Start” movie, combined with a new “Getting Started” reference document in the Yojimbo help, provides a crash course in how to make the most of Yojimbo from the very beginning.

Yojimbo 1.2 allows bookmarks to export as clipping files, and includes an enhanced “import” scripting verb. Yojimbo 1.2 provides other improvements and refinements, plus fixes to reported issues, and is a recommended update for all Yojimbo customers.

Yojimbo 1.2 requires Mac OS X 10.4.3 or later and is available free of charge to all registered Yojimbo customers. The Yojimbo 1.2 update includes bookmarklets compatible with Safari, Camino, FireFox, and OmniWeb. An update package is available for download from the Bare Bones Software web site:

Yojimbo Organizes Everything Else

Yojimbo empowers Mac users to manage, effortlessly and securely, the onslaught of information encountered every day at work and at home, even across multiple computers. Yojimbo stores different data types: text notes, passwords, Web bookmarks, product serial numbers, PDFs, and web archives.

Data input into Yojimbo follows familiar Mac User Interface gestures such as copy-and-paste, drag-and-drop, a Quick Input Panel, or PDF Services from the Print menu. Searching and retrieval are instantaneous, using either Yojimbo’s built-in search, or the Spotlight search system in Mac OS X Tiger. If desired, Yojimbo will encrypt data using the secure AES-256 algorithm standard.

Its simple, flexible storage system allows for personally-defined organization of data. Support for Mac OS X’s Sync Services synchronization provides back-up and data portability for .Mac account holders, making irrelevant which computer was used to access, add or modify an item stored in Yojimbo.

Yojimbo is available immediately at a suggested retail price of US$39 for an individual license; US$69 for a family-pack license for up to five people in a single household; or US$29 for an educational license. All licenses provide for .Mac synchronization of multiple computers.
