I really hate to pester you folks, but it has been two months since Mavericks was released and the Accordance Widget has still not been updated so it can be used in that OS.

 

I've held off installing Mavericks on my main computer since I use the Accordance Widget every day!

 

Are you still working on the Widget or has been abandonded?

We are working on a minor update to the Widget that should enable at least the Auto-Insert functionality.  However, Mavericks introduced certain security changes which mean that (likely) Auto-Search won't ever work, and potentially other capabilities.  We have plans to restructure the Widget entirely to work better (i.e. get it off the Dashboard), but these are being pushed back by other higher priority items.

Thanks for the information Joel.  I am very glad to hear that this is at least on the list for a fix.

1.6.7 of the Widget has been posted here:

It fixes the ability to Auto Insert from the widget.  Auto Search still doesn't work in Mavericks and may never work, due to the new security restrictions.  But, that can be worked around without too much hassle.
