Good evening, Linux users!
Our Linux Beta survey has closed, and we got more responses this time than in any survey before. Thank you so much for answering! Our Product Manager is analyzing the data, and I'm looking forward to seeing what all of you think of 1Password so far and where we should go.
This week, we're seeing a lot of UI improvements. You can now use arrow keys on your keyboard to switch between the sidebar, the list of items, and the item details in the main view. When you drag items onto the sidebar, we now highlight the destination so you can easily see where the item will be dropped. We are also putting effort into improving offline mode, and so this week your account icons will work correctly even when you cannot connect to the internet.
Check out this beautiful drag and drop!
Check out our release notes for a full list.
When integrating with the 1Password in your browser, 1Password for the desktop uses the name of the browser's executable as one of several checks to ensure that it really is the browser extension trying to access the desktop application. Since we released this feature, we've had many requests to add additional browsers, in part because the actual executable names can vary by distribution.
Instead of continuing to try to track all of those down, today we are making it possible for you, the user, to control that list. Today's release will add a file,
/etc/1password/custom_allowed_browsers, where you can add your own browser if it is one of those that we do not directly support.
We included an example in
/opt/1Password/resources/custom_allowed_browsers. Copy it into
/etc/1password, edit it, and ensure that root owns the file.
Please let us know what you think!

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.
