Keyboard Maestro Macro Program Gets Maintenance Update

Stairways Software Pty Ltd has announced an update for Keyboard Maestro, bringing the macro utility to version 2.0.2. The release is a maintenance update that includes some bug fixes and improved support for French. From the company:

Using Keyboard Maestrois macros you can control applications, windows, or menus; insert text; open documents, applications or URLs; execute scripts; control the system, iTunes, or a PowerMate; and more, all with the touch of a key, click of the mouse, periodically or at specific times, or even when an application is launched, running or quits.

The Program Switcher lets you cycle through applications or windows, closing, hiding, launching, and more. Keyboard Maestro can help you regain control of your crowded screen by letting you close or hide multiple windows or applications, especially useful in the Finder.

The Clipboard Switcher lets you select from a number of named clipboards, storing information away for later retrieval. Store the details you are working with and access them by name again and again.

Keyboard Maestro was acquired by Stairways Software on 30 June 2004 and we have continued to build on the solid foundations that Michael Kamprath developed in Keyboard Maestro 1 and the initial 2.0 betas.

New in Keyboard Maestro 2.0.2:

  • Fixed a crash in the registration dialog.
  • Fixed a problem where AppleScripts could be saved back as run-only.
  • Fixed a problem where version 1 Macros were not imported.
  • Improved French language support.
  • Corrected a few iTunes Control action names/titles.

Keyboard Maestro 2.0 requires Mac OS X 10.2 or greater.
