Stairways Software has released Keyboard Maestro 6.1 with a number of improvements and fixes for the macro utility, which recently received a major update (see “Keyboard Maestro 6 Automates Web Pages, Adds Macro Syncing,” 21 May 2013). The new release adds actions for opening the Keyboard Maestro status menu as well as for setting Safari and Google Chrome checkbox and radio button behaviors, conceals probable passwords in the clipboard history, improves accessibility detection and behavior under OS X 10.9 Mavericks, and enables you to read the plain text version of the clipboard when desired. The update also fixes icons for Chrome actions (which were previously identified with Safari icons), makes an adjustment for reading code from the clipboard when dealing with Safari’s “wonky Web archives,” and fixes the display of wireless triggers, the show menu action, and Set Variable to Calculation. ($36 new with a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members, free update with version 6 license, $25 upgrade from previous versions, 24 MB, release notes)
