Running with Crayons has issued Alfred 3.1 with workflow and performance improvements for the keyboard-driven launcher. The update adds three new workflow objects (a Hide Alfred utility, plus Dispatch Key Combo and Call External Trigger output objects), improves overall responsiveness (particularly for the Actions panel and Large Type), enables use of Command-S and Escape as key combinations in Remote configuration, updates the iTunes AppleScript to disable shuffle before playing an Alfred playlist, and tunes metadata queries for macOS 10.12 Sierra to improve performance. (Free, £17 for Powerpack, 2.6 MB, release notes, 10.9+)
