New Mac and Windows Data Collectors – 1.0.0

We’re excited to announce the 1.0.0 version of our Mac and Windows data collectors.

In addition to numerous bug fixes we have added some really cool features surrounding privacy and security.

Secure Transfer of your data

By default, RescueTime will now send data using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). This means your data is encrypted before it is sent over the internet to the RescueTime servers. This is an option that can be disabled if needed, in case of issues with firewalls and/or proxy servers.

Website Whitelists

This optional feature tells RescueTime to pay detailed attention to specific websites that you place on the whitelist. All other websites will be lumped together in a “Other Web Sites” group. You can read more about Whitelists by going to our About Whitelists page.

Support for Mac FileVault users

We have made a large number of changes to the Mac code base which should allow FileVault users to once again enjoy RescueTime.

A BIG thanks goes out to all of the users who helped us Alpha test these new features!
