Alfred 2.6

Running with Crayons has released Alfred 2.6, adding more control over when scripts are executed and support for sending attachments in Airmail 2. The keyboard-driven launcher also changes to a new method of loading URLs to sidestep an issue with OS X 10.10 Yosemite, improves the workflow preferences search field behavior in Yosemite, reorganizes the default hotkeys framework to sync more gracefully, and improves reliability of simulated key releases. Alfred 2.6 adds support for the new Alfred Remote for iOS ($4.99), which enables you to control many Alfred actions on your Mac from your iOS device. (Free, £17 for Powerpack, 3.7 MB, release notes, 10.6+)
