Keyboard Maestro 5.3.1

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Stairways Software has released version 5.3.1 of its Keyboard Maestro [1] automation utility, which fixes an issue with executing Automator workflows in the upcoming release of OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. This maintenance release also patches some memory leaks, resolves a performance issue with the Button Condition, provides Growl notification when a timeout cancels a macro, fixes a performance issue with getting the Finder’s selection, fixes the SECONDS() function, allows “APPLICATION” in the menu condition, and ensures that triple click actions perform correctly. The Mac App Store version [2] of Keyboard Maestro 5.3.1 (not yet available as of this writing) now includes a fix that avoids “no autorelease pool” warnings when launching the engine. ($36 new from Stairways Software or the Mac App Store, free update, $25 upgrade from versions previous to 5.0, 17.7 MB, release notes [3])
