What are sneaky peeks?

Sneaky peeks are our latest (unstable) internal builds. These internal builds are exactly what we see here at Omni: they're just snapshots of our development that are updated every few hours and haven't gone through any sort of vetting process—which means that you might actually be the first person to try a particular build and discover that it eats your system. (We hope that doesn't happen, of course—it would be pretty upsetting if a build were to eat any of our files when we run it—but since we won't have tested the app before giving you access we can't make any guarantees.)

In other words, sneaky peeks aren't for the faint of heart; they're an invitation to come join us on the bleeding edge of our development process.

If this sounds interesting to you, then you're invited to try running our sneaky peek builds. But if you'd prefer to work with something a little less risky, please download the latest stable release instead.
We're mostly working on OmniFocus 1.8 and beyond at this point, but there are a few fixes we wanted to bring back to 1.7.5 (so you wouldn't have to wait for 1.8):
  • Updated the OmniFocus Clip-O-Tron to be compatible with future updates to Snow Leopard. (When Mail warns you that the old version is no longer compatible, you can reinstall the Clip-O-Tron from Clipping Preferences.)
  • Fixed some regressions with the application becoming visible again while using Quick Entry.
  • In Snow Leopard's System Preferences, the clippings shortcut (assigned by Clippings Preferences in OmniFocus) should now appear under the Services -> Text section of Keyboard Shortcuts (rather than under the Application Shortcuts section).
  • Fixed a crash which happened when independently deleting the same folder on two copies of OmniFocus, then synchronizing the deletes.

We expect this to be a pretty short round of sneaky peeks (we'd like to post a final build of 1.7.5 soon), so please send or post any feedback you have sooner rather than later!
