I paid for a program that has sat for many years completely unusable, so when I finally saw an update after so long, I figured I would give it a try and finally be able to used it.
i was wrong!. They want more even money for something that I paid for that I have been unable to use for many years.

4.2 has been available since Aug-2012 direct from the developer's www site. The MU update is now the same 4.2 from that date.

I can understand the developer might be very slow to notify MU of their updates. I do wish the bugs mentioned in Sep-2012 would be fixed including URLMP asking to Save Changes when no changes have been made.

Version 4.1.1 still has not addresses the 800 pound gorilla. If you load UMP on startup, you have an annoying problem at shutdown. You have to be sitting there at your computer to tell UMP to save (or not) even though there were no changes. If you just walk away, your computer will refuse to shut down. This does not happen every time, making the problem even worse.
Alco, please fix this glaring problem and don't release another paid "upgrade" without major changes.

4.2 is available at the developer's site for free. Might fix the monkey on your back. :-)

Well now I have the same problem and others with URL MP 4.2
First as Whiterock I've got the problem where even if I have not made changes it wants me to SAVE when I Restart or ShutDown my Mac. But this also seems to be associated with at Startup, URL Manager opens my url file and some blank window at the same time. THen it won't auto-hide in the background until I QUIT URLMP (telling it not to save) and relaunch it. THen only the window with my URLs open and it will autohide. This started perhaps a month ago. I've been using the Startup Cabinet on DropBox for 6 months but DB has gone through several update.

Whiterock - do you happen to be using DropBox or other cloud storage for your URL file?

4.2.2 is now available. If you purchased via the App Store you need to contact the developer to get a serial number to test 4.2.2 (reportedly fixes bugs that showed up with OS X 10.8.2)

Version 4.1 brings back the "Save to Browser" option that allows you to save your bookmarks to all your browsers so for me URL Manager is the number one bookmark manager again like it always used to be since way back in the nineties.
It's easy to use, very intuitive and comes with a good manual that you hardly need to use.

Still useless to me because there isn't a decent way to write the edited bookmarks back to your browser(s). The Export function doesn't do this.
Back in the old days there used to be a menu option "Save to browser" but it was removed. Maybe the developer doesn't like the extra work that maintaining this function brings with it?

In Safari, one can import files exported by URL Manager. Not an elegant (read easily synchronized) solution by any means.

Hi Alco,

Could you let us know what you road map for URL manager pro is?

Is this just a lion compatibility update and you go back to sleep?

Will you improve this further, update the UI, ad new features?

This would be great to know before forking out money again for your neglected software?

Thanks

I have to agree with 22duke. I've been looking through version 4.0.1b2 and my thought was, "$15/$25 for the same old thing which hasn't been updated for years?" I've moved on to XMarks for synching bookmarks between browsers on various computers and BookMacster for overall bookmark management. I had forgotten about URLManager Pro until I got a notification of this update. I would consider upgrading to the latest URLManager Pro if the upgrade price was nominal or if it's development was going to start up after all these years.

I have 3.5b10 on Snow Leopard. The program hasn't had any added features for years and apparently it's never going to make it out of beta. Now the developer wants $15 so it will run on Lion.

From what I can see, v4 adds no new features, just makes it Lion compatible. I think I'll give it a miss.

Furthermore, even though it's marked as 4.0b4 above, if you click the download link, it downloads 3.5b11. On the URL Manager Pro website, it has release notes for version 3.6, but there's no where to download it.

When I click "What's the latest version?" from within the program, it tells me that my 3.5b10 is the latest version.

This pretty much sums up the lackadaisical manner in which this program has been developed in recent years.

Like many other users, I am just glad that URL M P now runs on Lion and starts up much more quickly on Snow Leopard. As I've been using the program for over 10 years, I'm not looking for any new features, I just want it to continue to exist as a best of class application for the Mac platform.

Totally useless because the Menu option "Save to Browser" is removed. How am I supposed to write my managed bookmarks back to my different browsers?

Qb had trouble on 24 Jan 2013
I posted this to URLMP's Discussion list almost 3 weeks and as no response there I will cross post here:
-------------
I have problems with URL MP 4.2.4 and SN 10.8.2 identical to ones mentioned by others.

First picking a single URL or "Open in Tabs" from the Menu bar icon results in nothing happening in Safari. Does not matter if I have a Safari window open or not.

Second - most time when I startup my Mac Pro in the morning URLMP shows the partially drawn window (I read this is a history window) plus my URLs. It will not hide and if I QUIT it asks to SAVE CHANGES even though no changes have been made.

I've had these for a few releases and keep updating URLMP in hopes of a fix. However nothing seems to be forthcoming in recent months.

thanks

Is anyone else having trouble downloading this app?
i can't get thru to the ftp in any way, shape or form (tried diff ftp clients, no luck).

assume there is a demo/trial, yes?

Is there an http download connection by any chance?

thank you

Just downloaded it to check, downloaded just fine. Make sure you have passive FTp enabled in System Preferences/Network/Proxies.
