QuicKeys 4 Enhances Automation Power -- CE Software is now shipping QuicKeys 4.0, the latest version of its utility for automating repetitive tasks on the Mac (see "Form, Function, and QuicKeys 3.5, Part 1" in TidBITS-347 for a review of the previous version). The upgrade adds Mac OS 8.5 compatibility, a revised QuicKeys Editor interface, and setup wizards to create new shortcuts easily, plus offers enhanced stability and performance (it also requires a PowerPC-based Macintosh). A set of ten new plug-ins add the capability to open a predetermined set of files related to a specific project, a method of storing encrypted passwords, and more. QuicKeys 4 sells for $100, or $90 if purchased from CE Software's online store. Owners of QuicKeys 3.5 can upgrade for $36; upgrades from QuicKeys 3.0 or competing programs are available for $50. A 30-day demo version is also available as a 2.4 MB download. [JLC]
