PreFab UI Actions 1.0

PreFab and Bill Cheeseman have completed the first version of UI Actions, which lets you bind AppleScripts to be triggered by user interface events in accessible applications. This sounds incredibly useful, but at the moment I have few ideas for how to use it. Perhaps it could be used to add BBEdit-style backup functionality to other applications. (Each time you save a document, BBEdit saves a dated copy of it, providing a kind of transient version control.)

Also released today is version 1.3 of PreFab’s excellent UI Browser. The mechanics of purchasing from PreFab haven’t always been easy. Buying Player entailed filling out a text-based form and submitting it via e-mail. PreFab now has an eSellerate store, which should make buying much easier.
