  1. RAMP v 1.4.4

    We’ve pushed out a few new versions of RAMP recently, addressing: v1.4.4 More obvious error messages when media fails to transfer v1.4.3 and v1.4.2 both address issues with backslashes being removed from content. I’ve written about this issue ad nauseum, but RAMP was originally written before the issue was discovered. If my patches had gone…

  2. iPassword 4 Mac Won’t Fill in Chrome (or Chromium)

    If this happens to you, it’s possible that Chrome (or Chromium) has updated itself in the background. Quit and re-launch the browser and 1Password 4 should start filling in usernames and passwords again like you’d expect.
