- Bookends Browser: Storing and retrieving surname and password in Keychain works with the new browser API.
- Bookends Browser: You are able to download PDFs accessed through a proxy server such as EZProxy. If the PDF download fails the PDF will actually still be displayed in the browser window. If it is, you can open it in Preview with a right-click or using the HUD and then attach to a Bookends reference by dragging and dropping the PDF proxy icon in the Preview window title bar.
- Bookends Browser: If the link to a PDF triggers a file download (rather than being displayed in the browser window), the attach dialog will appear ad let you attach the PDF to the frontmost library's selected reference, a new reference with autofill Autocomplete Paper, etc. If no library window is open, the PDF will be downloaded to the Downloads folder and opened in the default PDF reader (e.g. Preview).
- Bookends Browser: The "open PDF" head-up display (HUD) works. When viewing a PDF, if you move the mouse to the bottom of the page a HUD appears. If you click on the third icon from the left, the PDF will be opened in Preview. You can attach the PDF to the selected reference in Bookends by dragging the file proxy icon (in the Preview window title bar) and dropping it on the Bookends library window.

Fixed a bug in which creating a notecard with page # from an annotation didn't calculate to true page number correctly.
