Apple has posted a preview release of , a Mac OS X application that can read, write, record, and save AppleScript scripts. (It is located in the AppleScript folder in the Applications folder on your hard drive). Script Editor includes a simplied interface, find/replace features, multiple undos, a new dictionary browser (with color coding and grouped events/classes), a contextual menu, and support for Application Services.
The preview release of the new GUI scripting architecture uses a special version of the System Events application to enable AppleScript scripts to select menu items, push buttons, enter text into text fields, and generally control the GUI of most non-Classic applications. Apple has posted examples to demonstrate a few possible uses of GUI scripting. It requires Mac OS X 10.2.3.
