We are excited to announce that Bartender 2 has just been released, and we think you will love it!
With support for OS X El Capitan, a beautiful new user interface to match OS X and some fantastic new features it is packed full of goodness.
Bartender has been the way to control the proliferation of menu bar apps since its launch 3 years ago. Every release since has improved performance, added features and maintained compatibility through 6 versions of OS X! (from Snow Leopard to El Capitan) With Bartender 2 we keep going!
Some of the great features of Bartender 2 are highlighted below:
####OS X El Capitan Ready Bartender 2 fully supports OS X El Capitan and can control Apple menu bar items.
####Updated UI for Yosemite and El Capitan The Bartender Bar now has the same exact vibrant appearance as the menu bar, in both light and dark mode, making it look like part of OS X. New Bartender Bar animations, for example the Bartender Bar now slides out when closing. Bartender Preferences have also been updated to a modern look and provide easier access to features.
####Keyboard navigate all menu items With Bartender 2 you can now keyboard navigate all menu items both in the menu bar and Bartender Bar; simply arrow through them and press return to select.
####Search menu items in Bartender Bar You can now search the Bartender Bar for menu items, allowing you quick access to a menu item without looking for it. Simply display the Bartender Bar and start typing, then press enter to select the menu item.
####Major under the hood improvements A key part of Bartender 2 has been rewriting the internals to support and allow new features and to allow Bartender to work with System Integrity Protection in OS X El Capitan. As always we continue to improve Bartender’s performance and energy usage.
But enough of us telling you about it, download it and give it a go for yourself.
