QuicKeys X 1.0.2 Adds Options — In our recent review of QuicKeys X, we noted that the engineers at CE Software have had to rebuild the macro utility from scratch for Mac OS X, resulting in a significantly reduced feature list compared to the Mac OS 9 version (see "QuicKeys X: The Return of the Ghost" in TidBITS-602). The company is gradually building up its new utility, starting with the QuicKeys X 1.0.2 update released last week. The new version adds options for hiding and showing applications, increases the speed of inserting boilerplate text, improves AppleScript playback speed, and incorporates bug fixes and other enhancements. Most welcome, at least to some of us, is the addition of a Bring All Windows to Front action, which enables you to set up a workaround for the most annoying aspect of switching applications in Mac OS X. QuicKeys X 1.0.2 is a free update and a 5.7 MB download. [JLC]
