The forthcoming update, which follows the 1Password 4 update for iOS earlier this year, includes features such as iCloud syncing, the ability to tag items as favorites, and support for multiple accounts on a single website.

1Password 4 also includes security features such as the ability to send information from the program between iOS and Mac through encrypted iMessage and emails, the ability to see duplicate passwords and passwords strengths, and a stability overhaul with the program’s browser extension being written in Cocoa to allow for unified compatibility on all major browsers.

1Password 4 is expected to be released this fall, and will be free to users who have already purchased 1Password 3 from the Mac App Store. Users who bought 1Password 3 through AgileBits website on or after January 1, 2013 will also receive the upgrade for free, while pricing for new customers is yet to be determined.

Is there any major reason to buy this, over using the upcoming iCloud Keychain?
I think there are still a few reasons still to use 1Password.

Do you use Windows or want to view your passwords in browser on other OS's?
Do you trust Apples iCloud to keep your passwords secure (1password by default stores everything locally)?
Would you rather use Dropbox to sync?
How about storing files securely, or having a dedicated place for secure notes, other personal information, software keys etc...
You can easily backup, restore and merge the 1Password file store.

There are actually 3 major reasons that come to mind to use 1Password or similar programs:[LIST=1]
* These applications store information that doesn't "fit" on the iCloud Keychain including:* Serial Numbers, especially for things you take out of your home like portable electronics and camera gear.
* Combinations for locks
* Software registration keys
* etc
* Cross platform compatibility (not just Macs and iOS devices)
* The easy ability to look up information on your iOS device when you are at a computer that isn't yours.

I'm glad it's going to be a free upgrade for 1Password 3 users. I bought ver 3 when it was heavily discounted during the launch of the MAS; it's regular price, as good as the app is, is quite steep IMO.
