    Heartbleed everywhere, but not in our products! 

    We have received many questions from our users regarding the omnipresent Heartbleed bug in OpenSSL, a library that is used in many web services and also in our own applications, Shimo and Kiwingu. That’s why we want to inform you about the impact of this bug on your secure VPN connections and cloud storage access.

    First of all: You are completely safe!

    In both cases, with Shimo and Kiwingu, SSL may be used for authentication, but the heartbleed bug is primarily critical when employed on a secured server. Therefore your remote endpoint (e.g. VPN server or cloud storage provider) needs to make sure that the Heartbleed bug is fixed. The client side (our applications) is not affected and cannot be exploited to expose any information.

    Nevertheless, the latest beta versions of our applications will be bundled with a fixed version of the OpenSSL library, which does not contain the Heartbleed bug anymore. This does not add anything to your internet security (as the current versions are already safe), but it makes sure that our applications are up-to-date with the latest security developments.

    The latest and greatest versions of Shimo and Kiwingu can be purchased with a discount of 25% for the next seven days. The corresponding coupon code is HEARTBEAT and can be used in our ChungwaStore.

    OSX 10.9.2 compatibility: Done! 

    As many of you have already realized: Apple released a new version of OSX yesterday: 10.9.2 – With this update some of our plugins were incompatible, which does not mean that they had some technical issues, but all Mail plugins have to explicitly define the OSX versions that they are compatible with. The plugins ForgetMeNot, Graffiti and Face2Face did not have 10.9.2 in their list of compatible plugins – YET.

    Yesterday evening, we released new versions of these plugins that should be compatible again with OSX 10.9.2!

    If you still encounter any problems with any of our software products, please feel free to create a corresponding thread in our community forum.

    CargoLifter: Email Attachments in the Cloud 

    Cargo LifterToday we are releasing our next plugin for Apple’s Mail application, CargoLifter. With CargoLifter you won’t fill other people’s email inboxes any longer. Instead of sending email file attachments as part of the email, CargoLifter automatically uploads all file attachments to your favorite cloud service (e.g. Dropbox or YouSendIt) and afterwards adds the corresponding download links to your email message. The email’s recipient can then easily download the files from the cloud instead of storing the files as part of the email ins his mailbox.

    Feel free to test CargoLifter by downloading it now.

      Hi,
      CargoLifter sounds very interesting. I was wondering whether you are planning to release it for other mail programs as well, for example Postbox.
      Thanks,
      Andre

      • Fabian 08:54 on March 18, 2013 Permalink | Reply

        Currently, I don’t have plans on supporting other mail programs.

    • Charlie 14:25 on March 18, 2013 Permalink | Reply

      Installed and connected to my dropbox. Set for .5mb and “ask before…” Try to send large things and gets rejected by the mail server. Seems that it never asks to upload, nor does it upload as my DB folder stays empty. I restarted mail.app with no change in behavior.

      Are you developing CL for Postbox?

      • Fabian 08:34 on June 24, 2013 Permalink | Reply

        Currently there is no plan to work on a Postbox version of CargoLifter.

The more people use Face2Face, the more images will be shown in your email’s inbox.
    The best about Face2Face is, that it is absolutely free to use. Just download it now and enhance your favorite email application by a great new feature.

      Before installing this app, I’d like to know if email addresses will be captured from my Contacts or from email I send and receive. I do not want to share other people’s information with a third party.

      BTW, I have found ForgetMeNot to be quite useful.

      • Fabian 08:26 on February 18, 2013 Permalink | Reply

        Email addresses from your Contacts won’t be captured to be sent somewhere. The email address of an email’s sender is just used to check if there is an image associated to this particular email address. It is not even the email address that is used for this lookup, but a value computed from this email address. This value is absolutely anonymous. If you want to have more technical details, please let me know.

      How do you make Company images??

      • Fabian 12:46 on February 24, 2013 Permalink | Reply

        If you want your company’s logo to be added to the Face2Face image database, please upload it HERE.

At this moment, you probably remember many of these situations, right? :-)

    ForgetMeNot 1.3 brings some improvements to its internal updating functionality to make sure you always have the latest and greatest version on your computer. Moreover, we added a welcome message for new users to find ForgetMeNot’s preferences more easily.

    Shimo 3.2: Triggered VPN Connections 

    Today we release the next major update of our awesome VPN client, Shimo. With Shimo 3.2 we fixed a lot of the smaller issues, which were reported by our users. Moreover, this update to Shimo comes with a great new way to automate your VPN connections: Triggers.
    With Triggers you can assign your VPN profiles to certain events like Network changes, application launches and others. This makes it possible to automatically establish a secured connection whenever you open Mail or Safari or whenever you connect to a wireless network with a certain name. Isn’t that great?!

    So, don’t waste any more time and download Shimo 3.2

    Good news for Lion (OS X 10.7) users: ForgetMeNot is compatible with the latest Mail.app of the latest OS X update (10.7.5).

    Get ForgetMeNot 1.2 now and forget about forgotten email attachments…
