Keyboard Maestro Gets An Update

ClaireWare Software has released an update for Keyboard Maestro, bringing it to version 1.0.3.. Keyboard Maestro is an OS X hot key utility designed for faster keystroke functionality. The update includes a new user interface and other enhancements. According to ClaireWare Software:

I am pleased to announce the release of Keyboard Maestro v1.0.3 for Mac OS X.

For anybody who works on their Mac, Keyboard Maestro is an essential utility to perform many different tasks simply by pressing a few keys. Keyboard Maestro allows you to spend more time working and less time mousing, clicking, and typing to get your work done. Keyboard Maestro has three core features built into it to make working on the Mac much simpler: Hot Keys, Program Switcher, and Clipboard Switcher.

The Hot Key feature enables you to perform any number of user configurable actions simply by pressing a keystroke. Hot Key actions include quitting, hiding, or activating applications, inserting text, executing an Apple Script, opening files or folders, and much more. All hot keys can optionally be targeted to specific applications, allowing the hot key to be active only when you find it useful.

New features and bug fixes in this version include:

  • Increased the number of hot keys available to the free Lite version to 20!
  • The Execute UNIX Script hot key results can now be selected and copied or dragged from the pop-up results window
  • Improved user interface
  • Hot keys that are targeted to different applications can now use the same keystroke
  • Fixed problem when the Keyboard Maestro periodically ignored the quit command or crashed when quitting
  • Improved the internal storage of file references
  • Program Switcher now correct handles the case when there is no application to display
