Bare Bones Software Releases Yojimbo 1.5

Now Accepts Images, Plus Dramatically Faster Search Makes Finding
Information Effortless

BEDFORD, Mass. – December 5, 2007 – Bare Bones Software, developer of
leading-edge power tools for Mac OS X, today released Yojimbo 1.5, the
effortless information organizer, now with support for image files.

This new version significantly improves on Yojimbo’s searching and
filtering performance. Spotlight search results are also more complete,
thanks to indexing of additional item properties, including tags. Yojimbo
1.5 also includes fixes for various reported issues and adds other
refinements to this reliable, easy to use information organizer.

“Yojimbo is a tightly focused product, designed to master the onslaught of
digital daily life,” said Rich Siegel, founder and CEO of Bare Bones
Software. “Thanks to the new support for images, your favorite Basic
Instructions strips, custom icons, desktop patterns, and other graphical
bits can join the rest of your data in your personal digital junk drawer.”

Yojimbo 1.5 requires Mac OS X 10.4.3 or later, and is compatible with Mac
OS X 10.5 (Leopard). An update is available free of charge to all
registered Yojimbo customers from the Bare Bones Software web site:


Yojimbo Organizes Everything Else

Yojimbo empowers Mac users to manage, effortlessly and securely, the
onslaught of information encountered every day at work and at home, even
across multiple computers. Yojimbo stores different data types: text notes,
passwords, Web bookmarks, product serial numbers, PDFs, images, and web

Data input into Yojimbo follows familiar Mac user interface gestures such
as copy-and-paste, drag-and-drop, a Quick Input Panel, or PDF Services from
the Print menu. Searching and retrieval are instantaneous, using either
Yojimbo’s built-in search, or the Spotlight search system in Mac OS X. If
desired, Yojimbo will encrypt data using the secure AES-256 algorithm

Its simple, flexible storage system allows for personalized organization of
data. Support for Mac OS X’s Sync Services synchronization provides back-up
and data portability for .Mac account holders, making irrelevant which
computer was used to access, add or modify an item stored in Yojimbo.
