1Password for Linux 0.9.12

edited February 16 in Linux Beta

Happy Wednesday, everyone! Little bit of a delay this week, but we have a new jam-packed release for you, so hold on to your hats!

We have many, many UI improvements today. For instance, if you are creating a new item and you do something to dismiss the dialog, we will prompt you to save your changes before you go. The Vault Collections sidebar is now a bit less confusing in that it will only show the updates to a collection when you save those updates. We've fixed some regressions with signing in again after you change your email address. We've solved some problems with the installation process on Debian 10, so you should be able to start 1Password without any additional steps.

There are so many fixes that it is hard to describe all of them, so check out our release weblog for a full list!

Database Migration

This release also includes our first database migration in quite a long time. The team spent some effort to optimize the local database, and so some users should see the size of their database shrink by a significant amount.

For all users, this means that there will be an initial startup delay right after you update. 1Password will open as normal, but will refresh data from your account, which may take some time. It is possible, while this update is occurring, that you can make changes to your items, which may break the connection between the desktop application and your account. If this should happen to you, simply rename the database (~/.config/1Password/1password.sqlite), and restart the application. Have your secret key on hand, as you will be taken through the sign-in process again, but all of your data is still stored safely in your account.

Installing and upgrading

Go to the getting started guide for instructions on installing or updating 1Password.

We made a mistake when we created 0.9.10, which some of you noticed. If /opt and /usr are on separate filesystems, 1Password 0.9.10 would not install due to a hard linking issue. That has now been fixed in 0.9.11. Happy installing!

As always, thank you so much for using 1Password and for all of the reports you send in that help us make our service better.
