Wow, some really neat features in this update! Clipboard history finally and the QuickLook feature in LB is fantastic! The new icon is pretty cool also.

What will the cost of an upgrade be to current owners?

I'm excited about the new features! It looks great.

From what I saw in the main page of LauchBar, the upgrades start at 9€.

Has anyone managed to index Firefox 3 history?

UPDATE - Regarding Firefox 3 history, the good dev folks sent me a link:

Wow – that should definitely silence the questions about LaunchBar's development status.
My first reaction when seeing the new logo was: What? Version 6? ^^
But I like it. Really many of the requested features have been added. I'm sure in the next days we'll each find out what we're still missing... so have fun beta-testing everybody!

regards,
Ludwig

I thought the same thing, then I looked again and the "L" and the "B" in the icon made sense.

Awhile back I threw the gauntlet down about my disappointment with the lack of updates.

I take it all back. You've answered with vigor. Fantastic update! Thank you!

Very very nice job folks!

The quicklook is just great! Clipboard History + select image on clipboard + quicklook is awesome!

Yup. Same here, I thought he was all done.

Glad to see its still ongoing, beyond bug fixes.
