Keyboard Maestro 2.0 Makes Macros

Keyboard Maestro 2.0 Makes Macros -- Michael Kamprath's utility Keyboard Maestro has found a new home at Stairways Software, which has just released version 2.0. The revision is a rewrite of the original program, which lets you create macros to automate tasks based on hotkeys, application actions, specific times, or even the use of a Griffin Technology PowerMate. The new version also adds button clicks and scroll wheel simulations, window manipulation, multiple named clipboards, and the capability to collect macros into application-specific Macro Groups. Keyboard Maestro 2.0 costs $20 for a single user license, with prices for 5-, 20-, and 100-seat licenses ranging up to $695. The program is available as free trial version, which is a 4.4 MB download; Mac OS X 10.2 or later is required to run it. [JLC]
