Completely rewritten

New ClipMenu has been rewritten from scratch in Apple's new Swift language. No more using old deprecated APIs.

Better performance

ClipMenu 0.4.x had stored data in memory, but new ClipMenu stores data on disk and fetch them on demand. This makes it requires less memory than before.

Unlimited amount

New ClipMenu uses Core Data for persisting data, you can handle large number of history items if you want.

History Window

You can look, search and remove history items in single window. By selecting items and pushing 'Touch' button, you can update their last used date and move the to top in the menu.

Popover preview

New popover preview can show not only plain texts but also rich texts and images. You can set its delay time to popover and whether it animates from the preferences window.
