OmniFocus 1.5 RC1が最新バージョン。


Welcome to OmniFocus 1.5! Whether you've been following along with the sneaky peek releases, or you've upgraded straight from version 1.0.3, we hope you enjoy the improvements in this update. Here's an overview of what's new since OmniFocus v1.0.3:

Synchronization: By far the biggest new feature of OmniFocus version 1.5 is synchronization between any number of OmniFocus for Mac and OmniFocus for iPhone databases! There are several ways to sync: most notably over the Internet with MobileMe or a web server, or over local Wi-Fi with Bonjour. With the kind help of our sneaky peek testers, we have put lots and lots of work into making this as easy, as reliable, and as fast as possible. To set up sync, check out the new Sync preferences and the Synchronization section of OmniFocus Help.

Archiving: To keep your database slim and speedy (especially helpful for synchronization), you can archive your completed or dropped items to a separate file. Just choose Move Old Data to Archive from the File menu, and then choose a cutoff date for which items to move. You can get at your archived data by choosing Open Archive.

View Presets: Following the example of OmniFocus for iPhone, there are now several built-in view presets in the default toolbar, for easy access to due items, flagged items, the inbox, and so on. We think these make OmniFocus much more approachable and easier to learn. If you customized your toolbar prior to OmniFocus version 1.5, you'll need to choose Customize Toolbar from the View menu again to add these new items to your toolbar.

Style Preferences: The new Style preference pane offers myriad ways to customize the appearance of your OmniFocus data. You can save and share style settings as theme files.

Creating Projects and Contexts with Hierarchy: When typing the name of a new project or context in a completion cell, you can now place the new item in your library's hierarchy, using the separator in General preferences. For instance, if your hierarchy separator is a colon, you could type “Work : Pterodactyl Upkeep” into a project cell, then press Command-Return to create the new project inside your “Work” folder.

Behavior of Enter and Escape Keys: We are trying to move away from the use of the Escape key to confirm changes, as most applications use it to cancel changes. So by default, the Enter key now switches between row selection and text editing modes, rather than moving to the note area. You can still move in and out of the note area by pressing Command-Apostrophe. You can also still use the General preferences to customize the behaviors of the Escape and Return keys in Quick Entry.

All-around Interface Polish: We never tire of making our applications clearer to understand, easier to use, and more pleasant to look at. Thanks to copious constructive suggestions from perceptive customers and eminent interaction experts alike, we have made countless major and minor adjustments to the way OmniFocus looks and works. Of course, please keep your feeback coming!

Bug Fixes, Performance Improvements, and Other Miscellaneous Refinements: The items above are only the most obvious changes to OmniFocus; plenty more has been improved backstage. For really exhaustive details of what else has changed, check out the release notes archive.
