Bare Bones Software has announced an update to Yojimbo, its intuitive information organizer. Yojimbo 2.1 includes a few fixes and refinements to version 2.0, which was released in September.
The latest version offers a series of tweaks that should improve the overall experience: the application’s useful Drop Dock has become available in Exposé’s “show desktop” mode; Speech and Transform commands have been added to the Edit menu; and users running Snow Leopard will be able to take advantage of system text features like spelling correction, text substitution, and data detectors. More than a dozen minor bugs have been fixed as well.
Yojimbo touts itself as a database that requires no training. Users can collect many kinds of data—text, images, PDFs, Web archives, passwords—and organize that data with actions as simple as copy-and-paste or drag-and-drop. The application also includes a variety of ways to search that data using the the Tag Explorer. MobileMe users can add to or access their Yojimbo data through their accounts.
The update, like its predecessor, is a Universal application and requires Mac OS X 10.5.7 or later. It’s available free to all users of Yojimbo 2.0. New licenses are $39.
