Keyboard Maestro 2.0

Stairways Software has released , an update to the powerful system utility for Mac OS X that offers three functions: powerful macros, program and windows switching, and clipboard switching. Using Keyboard Maestro's 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--using keyboard, mouse, scheduled/repeating, or application triggers. The Clipboard Switcher lets users select from a number of named clipboards, storing information away for later retrieval. It runs on Mac OS X 10.2 or later and is available for $20. Upgrades are free for purchases after July 1, 2004 and $10 for other registered users.

Keyboard Maestro was acquired by Stairways Software on 30 June 2004. Version 2.0 represents a complete rewrite of the internal engine to support multiple Macro Triggers including traditional Hot Keys, application launch/quit events, scheduled events, a context-sensitive macro palette, and more. It also allows users to manipulate Windows (resize, close, zoom and more), simulate button clicks, simulate scroll wheel action, and use a named clipboard.



Keyboard Maestro 2.0 also adds a new concept of a Macro Group, a set of
Macros that are enabled for a specific set of applications. This
allows you to easily create Macros to enhance a particular
application without tying up Hot Keys in other applications. Version 2.0 adds support for importing and exporting Macros so you can share Macros with your friends and colleagues.
