1Password 7.2 Beta 2 is out here

Hey guys,

We've missed you and we didn't want to leave 2018 without one more gift for you guys.

We have a lot of major improvements for 1Password 7.3; the first improvement is 1Password is now fully localized with the categories and item templates that will show up in your language. We've also built our own installer, so we can be more proactive with specific issues such as false positives and "file in use" issues.

We've also rebuilt our Folder Sync engine (this includes using your standalone vaults in Dropbox folders), it is much faster now and should use less of your system resources. Please give it a try and let us know how it works for you.

In addition, a lot of the internal codebase has been updated to accommodate future changes, which is why this has taken us some time to release. Expect to see more updates quicker soon!

Changelog

7.3.601/.602

Restored access for Brave and Opera browsers.

7.3.600

[NEW] Categories and item template are now localized. When you create a new item in your language, 1Password will check for and download the latest localizations from our 1Password.com service. {OPW-3432}
[NEW] Configure 1Password to open your Login items in a new browser tab, current tab, or in a new browser window – you can choose an option in 1Password mini settings > Open URLs in. {OPW-1985}
[NEW] 1Password now has its own in-house installer. The new installer will give us more flexibility such as installing 1Password to its own versioned folder. This will bypass "file in use" issues and incomplete installs due to false positives by certain anti-malware solutions. {OPW-2324, OPW-1323, OPW-1246, OPW-1276, OPW-1949}
[NEW] We have rebuilt and optimized our Folder Sync engine for standalone vaults. It is faster, smarter, and uses less of your system's resources. {OPW-3008, OPW-3145}
[NEW] 1Password.exe has been added to Windows' list of registered app paths. This allows us to open 1Password in the Windows run dialog without entering the full path to the 1Password executable file. This will enable quicker and easier functions such as 1Password --diagnostics to generate a diagnostics report directly for customer support purposes. {OPW-3522}
[NEW] 1Password will output a list of supported command line arguments via 1Password.exe --help and 1PasswordSetup(version).exe. For command prompt, use start 1Password -help.
[NEW] Added an advanced troubleshooting option to reset all 1Password data. This will help those who need to start over with 1Password but picked up an old 1Password database, or forgot their Master Password and need to start fresh. {OPW-3444}
[NEW] Added a troubleshooting option to reveal the 1Password directory in Explorer for customer support purposes. {OPW-3522}
[NEW] 1Password now shows Beta on its titlebar to help indicate it will receive beta updates. {design-397}
[IMPROVED] The keyboard shortcut for Open and Fill in the main 1Password window has been changed from Enter to Control + Enter. This ensures pressing the Enter key in the Logins item list selects the item to view it and does not accidentally trigger Open and Fill for that item. {OPW-3541}
[IMPROVED] Watchtower's Reused and Weak Passwords categories now exclude items with PINs that contain 6 digits or fewer and do not contain a saved website address. {OPW-3393}
[IMPROVED] 1Password now ranks Watchtower banners by their severity, meaning the Vulnerable banner will show for an item that may be also using a weak or reused password. {OPW-3507}
[IMPROVED] 1Password now notifies you if you're offline due to dismissing the multi-factor authentication dialog. {OPW-3533}
[IMPROVED] Field buttons (copy/reveal/large type) now hover next to your data instead of on the far right side. {OPW-334}
[IMPROVED] The order of the field buttons has changed. The copy button is first, then reveal, and then large type. {OPW-2079}
[IMPROVED] Updated translations from our translation team.
[IMPROVED] Added a button next to a new custom field to let you specify a field type without entering data first. {OPW-1521}
[IMPROVED] 1Password now auto-labels new fields when using the add new field button. {OPW-3525}
[IMPROVED] When creating a new standalone vault, 1Password will validate the title and paths to make sure it complies with Windows' restrictions, such as invalid characters and max file path length. {OPW-3518}
[IMPROVED] 1Password will now ask for the master password before you can export your data. {OPW-1764}
[IMPROVED] Type in Window via 1Password mini will now show a smaller, scrollable list of windows instead of taking up the entire screen. {OPW-3523}
[IMPROVED] The F12 keyboard shortcut has been changed to Control + F12 for the 1Password Developer Tools window.
[IMPROVED] The notification tray app on the taskbar has been rebuilt to directly call Windows APIs with native code instead of using the UI libraries. This will improve the stability of 1Password. {OPW-1110}
[IMPROVED] Adjustments were made to focus 1Password mini better when clicking the 1Password extension in the web browsers. {OPW-3519}
[IMPROVED] 1Password can now refresh custom icons in real time after syncing standalone vaults. {OPW-3579}
[IMPROVED] Updated large parts of the 1Password codebase to prepare it for future features and general improvements across the board.
[FIXED] The default vault for saving setting didn't persist after restarting 1Password. {OPW-3506}
[FIXED] 1Password didn't autosave when it exited via 1Password > Exit menu and an item was still in the edit mode. {OPW-3561}
[FIXED] 1Password didn't automatically save the proxy credentials when it prompts for it. {OPW-1117}
[FIXED] Watchtower checked non-Login items with custom password fields that aren't supposed to be included. {OPW-3426}
[FIXED] Watchtower will now check all template password fields in other categories, except the custom password fields. {OPW-3416}
[FIXED] Inactive 2FA in Watchtower didn't include Login items with saved URLs that didn't have either the http:// or https:// protocol saved. {OPW-3548}
[FIXED] 1Password will no longer show AgileBits.OnePassword.SectionAddressFieldPart error when changing a custom address field to a different type. {OPW-3514}
[FIXED] The custom field type menu didn't show a checkmark on the current selected type. {OPW-2387}
[FIXED] Super-long notes would cause 1Password to hang. We will switch 10K or larger secure notes to a non-wrapping text view to avoid the performance issue. {OPW-2340, OPW-3368}
[FIXED] 1Password would show dates a day later for folks that live in in the UTC + 12/13/14 time zones (New Zealand, for example). {OPW-1509, OPW-2618}
[FIXED] After unlock, 1Password sometimes didn't respond to the first click on the sidebar. {OPW-3612}
[FIXED] 1Password now filters out the NULL (string terminator) character \0 when pasting in text with that character as it would truncate the rest of the text. {OPW-1240}
[FIXED] Removed excessive logs caused by connecting to the 1Password extension in Microsoft Edge. {OPW-3499}
[FIXED] When a device had been de-authorized, 1Password reset the local database but did not reset the app back to the welcome view. {OPW-3474}
[FIXED] 1Password would restore a cached rendered 1Password mini view before showing the locking animation when it should've shown a locked view right off the bat. To fix this aggressively, we are now dismissing 1Password mini windows completely when it auto-locks in the background. We'll try to find a way to maintain a locked mini view without the rendering glitch. {OPW-3212}
[FIXED] When removing or renaming tags on the sidebar without selecting the tag first, 1Password would process the item list instead of just the tagged items. {OPW-3530, OPW-3532}
[FIXED] If the setting for Windows Hello cannot be changed due to Group Policy or an unsupported Windows version, 1Password incorrectly showed it grayed out "On" instead of "Off". {OPW-3387}
[SECURITY] The 1Password Developer Tools windows did not automatically close themselves when 1Password auto-locked. {OPW-3544}
[SECURITY] We've updated the code signature/certificate for 1Password as the previous certificate was set to expire in Feb, 2019. {OPW-3485}

  • Hi there,
    I'm having trouble using browser extension only after upgrading to 7.3.600.
    I posted details here:

    Hi @kerbal,

    Thanks for reporting this.

    It's an issue with our code signature check for Brave only, we're fixing it and will ship an update very soon. I've removed the other thread since it is not an issue with the 1Password extension.

  • @MikeT Thank you for such lightspeed response! Looking forward to the update.

    Hi @kerbal,

    Check for an update via 1Password menu, 7.3.601 will fix your issue. It may take a few minutes before it shows up.

    Thanks again for reporting this to us!

  • Hi @MikeT , it's fixed. Thank you!

    Thank you so much for this:

    Field buttons (copy/reveal/large type) now hover next to your data instead of on the far right side. {OPW-334}

    :)
    I'm currently experiencing that lovely feeling when a bug gets fixed in a piece of a software, that's been annoying you (and maybe only you) for a long, long time. :chuffed:

    The only small thing I would add, is to make these buttons change colour (e.g. to black) on mouse-hover, or make the light-grey selection box (that currently appears on mouse-hover) more noticeable.

    Time to check out the rest of the new update, because it looks like a large one, with a lot of work having gone into it :+1:

    HI @pbryanw,

    The only small thing I would add, is to make these buttons change colour (e.g. to black) on mouse-hover, or make the light-grey selection box (that currently appears on mouse-hover) more noticeable.

    Yep, hover colors and "field border" (macOS or web app style where button is connected to the field value) are next on our list to improve the buttons.

    Time to check out the rest of the new update, because it looks like a large one, with a lot of work having gone into it

    Especially this line: Updated large parts of the 1Password codebase to prepare it for future features and general improvements across the board.

    They're not visible to users but a lot of changes to make it easier to add new features soon.
