Yojimbo update: 1.5

YojimboYojimbo, the super-simple file library from Bare Bones Software that excels at synchronization, has been updated to version 1.5. The biggest addition to Yojimbo is support for images; you can now toss your photos and so forth into Yojimbo and tag away. (A note from Bare Bones: “Please do not try to replace iPhoto, Aperture, or Lightroom with Yojimbo: You’ll make us cry.”) Yojimbo’s tags are also now searchable via Spotlight, searching and filtering has been greatly improved, and numerous Leopard bugs have been squashed (including problems with the Drop Dock in Spaces).

In a day with a number of point releases and bug fixes to tagging software already, this one definitely stands out. Yojimbo 1.5 is a worthy update to one of the three best file libraries available, and well worth downloading (it’ll be the last version you have to download yourself, since it now has auto-updating available). If you’d like more details about the update, see the Yojimbo release notes. The update is free to all registered users, and a normal individual license for Yojimbo costs $39.
