QuicKeys X3 3.1 Supports Automator, Adds Toolbars -- Startly Technologies has released QuicKeys X3 version 3.1, adding support for incorporating Automator workflows into QuicKeys shortcuts and bringing back SoftKeys, which provides a translucent toolbar with 10 slots for holding shortcuts. Smaller improvements include a new option for the Open Items action that lets you specify on the fly which application to use, the Action Palette for providing faster access to shortcuts within QuicKeys Editor, and the capability to trigger shortcuts based on the mounting or dismounting of specific drives or network volumes. For more about QuicKeys X3, see "QuicKeys X3 at the Crossroads" in TidBITS-767. QuicKeys X3 3.1 requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later and is a 14.1 MB download. It's a free update for users of QuicKeys X3; updates from previous versions run between $30 and $70, and new copies cost $100. [ACE]
