Bugs closed in the 5.0.8 release:

  • 18117 Limit AppleEvent Log to the most recent 5000 events. This avoids a potential memory exhaustion situation that can arise when scripts run for a long time or generate a massive number of AppleEvents.
  • 18111 Improve how Script Debugger activates its self when stepping through a sequence of AppleScript code that sends AppleEvents to an active target application.
  • 18113 Resolved a crashing bug that may happen when a folder within the Scripts or Clippings menus is renamed, moved or deleted.
  • 18110 Resolved problems that arise when the dictionary window is viewing an application that is later deleted using the rm command line tool.
  • 18105 Resolved a problem where Script Debugger would fail to overwrite an existing file when creating a new script from a bundled template.
  • 18101 Improved the handling of bundled templates when creating new scripts. Script Debugger only prompts you to immediately save the new script when its an ASObjC bundle.
  • 18098 Mavericks: Resolved a problem where the Export Run-Only Script and Export Flattened Script commands fail to work when running on Mac OS 10.9
  • 18100 Resolved a crashing bug that may happen in some instances when refreshing explorers containing AppleScript lists containing expanded object references showing properties in another application.
  • 18099 Resolved a explorer problem that arises when viewing AppleScript lists containing object references.
