Deal has released Time Out 2.1, an update to their break reminder app for macOS. Using a computer for hours on end can lead to eye, back, and neck strain. Time Out 2 offers users gentle reminders to take breaks, allowing them to stretch and relax.

Time Out 2.1 is free, and is available worldwide through the Mac App Store in the Health and Fitness category, as well as the Dejal website. Advanced features are available via easy in-app donations.
Jumsoft has announced changes in the suite of its Toolbox applications. Toolboxes for Pages, Keynote, iWork, and Microsoft Office have been given a major interface revamp, including a tag-based search feature to make browsing through thousands of items much easier.
In addition, all Toolboxes are compatible with the new macOS Sierra. Jumsoft's various Toolbox apps provide templates and illustrations for iWork and MS Office for Mac.
Users can download Jumsoft's Toolbox applications on the Mac App Store free of charge. They requires macOS El Capitan or Sierra.
Bare Bones Software has released BBEdit 11.6.2, an update to its text and code editor. The new version adds compatibility with macOS Sierra along with more than two dozen other changes, refinements and fixes for specific reported issues.
BBEdit 11.6.2 maintains the recently introduced evaluation model in which the full, complete feature set is available for the first 30 days of use.
