Good evening, Linux users!
One might think that with last week's release going in the middle of the week, this one might be a little lean. Not so! We have another huge group of changes, along with a couple of improvements to significant features. Now, when you drag a file from your desktop onto a Document item, you'll see visual feedback to indicate where to drop the file. We have started adding command line options to 1Password to help with scripting. Further, we now have a quick and easy way to generate a diagnostic report that you can send to us when things are having troubles.
Check out our release notes for a full list.
Until today, we haven't had much in the way of a command line interface. However, as we learn more with using 1Password in various Linux environments, we're having brainstorms for ways to control 1Password from other applications.
So now, we have started experimenting with a command line interface. The commands so far are pretty simple, but same sometimes be useful. For instance, applications are unable to register keyboard shortcuts, such as the 1Password open/close shortcut, on Wayland. With the new
--toggle flag on
1password, you are able to now create a shortcut in your system settings to quickly open and close 1Password.
We will continue to experiment with command line options and with our DBus interface as we discover more ways in which we can safely allow outside applications to send useful commands to 1Password.
On occasion, some of you report problems with 1Password and we have to ask for diagnostic information. We now have one convenient button in the settings dialog that will generate a diagnostics file that you can then email to our support system.
We will save the report directly to your Desktop directory. This is a JSON file that you can inspect yourself, then send it through your favorite email client to

Thank you for your patience, thank you for your feedback, and thank you for your support. We are always trying to make 1Password work better for more people, and we cannot do that without the feedback you have been giving us for the last six months.
