Caboodle 1.2 released

Caboodle, my handy app to store and organize snippets of text, images, PDFs, and other information, has been updated to version 1.2.

This release has a focus on the encryption features, with several significant and much-requested enhancements.

Perhaps the most significant of those is the addition of an option to view an encrypted entry without decrypting it on disk. When displaying the decryption sheet, you now have a choice between fully decrypting as before, or viewing the entry without decrypting it on disk. It is decrypted as a read-only view, so you can see the text etc until you quit Caboodle — no need to re-encrypt when you're done.

Other welcome enhancements are support for saving passwords in the keychain, and the ability to have Caboodle offer the most recently entered password and/or a default password. Great time-savers, that make using the encryption features much easier.

Caboodle's decryption sheet

This release also enhances the Services menu functions and when dropping text or images on Caboodle's Dock icon. Now it sets the Subject field based on the first line of text, and makes better decisions on where to add the entries.

No doubt many long-time users will be pleased to hear that this version also fixes a long-standing search indexing issue, too.

It also includes several other improvements and fixes; check out the release notes for full details.

One thing worth pointing out, for the 1% of people still on Mac OS X 10.3.9 (Panther): Caboodle now requires 10.4 (Tiger) as a minimum. So those people need to remain with version 1.1.4 until they're ready to upgrade their OS. (I've put a link to that version on the Caboodle product page, just in case.)
