Bare Bones Software Releases Yojimbo 1.5

Information Effortless

BEDFORD, Mass. – December 5, 2007 – Bare Bones Software, developer of leading-edge power tools for Mac OS X, today released Yojimbo 1.5, the effortless information organizer, now with support for image files.

This new version significantly improves on Yojimbo’s searching and filtering performance. Spotlight search results are also more complete, thanks to indexing of additional item properties, including tags. Yojimbo 1.5 also includes fixes for various reported issues and adds other refinements to this reliable, easy to use information organizer.

“Yojimbo is a tightly focused product, designed to master the onslaught of digital daily life,” said Rich Siegel, founder and CEO of Bare Bones Software. “Thanks to the new support for images, your favorite Basic Instructions strips, custom icons, desktop patterns, and other graphical bits can join the rest of your data in your personal digital junk drawer.”

Yojimbo 1.5 requires Mac OS X 10.4.3 or later, and is compatible with Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard). An update is available free of charge to all registered Yojimbo customers 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, images, 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. If desired, Yojimbo will encrypt data using the secure AES-256 algorithm standard.

Its simple, flexible storage system allows for personalized 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 today 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.
