Apple Updates Mac OS X AppleScript To Version 1.8.3

Apple Updates Mac OS X AppleScript To Version 1.8.3

by , 5:15 PM EDT, June 24th, 2002

Apple released an update for AppleScript for Mac OS X. The new version, 1.8.3, is a maintenance release designed to increase stability. The Software Update Control Panel says:

AppleScript 1.8.3 provides increased stability of scripts and script applications, improved Unicode support for text and runs applications created with the latest version of AppleScript Studio.

You can get the update through the Software Update Control Panel in Mac OS X; the file is 2.8 MB in size. As of this writing, Apple does not seem to have added this update to the support site at Apple.com.

The Mac Observer Spin:

It's interesting to see these updates to Mac OS X coming just one month before MACWORLD New York. This adds credence to the idea that Jaguar will be released in "the summer of 2002," after MACWORLD, and not at the event itself. Apple has released a networking update, an AirPort update, and this AppleScript update since late Friday evening.
