Script Debugger 7.0.5 Released

We are pleased to announce the release of Script Debugger 7.0.5. Script Debugger 7.0.5 is a free maintenance release addressing a series of issues that came to light following the release of Script Debugger 7.0. This release also introduces a series of changes to improve compatibility with macOS Mojave (10.14).

This update can be applied using Script Debugger’s Check For Updates command (in the Script Debugger menu). Alternatively, you can download the latest version of Script Debugger.

Changes in the 7.0.5 release

  • 894: Fixed bug where code signing could be disabled in the absence of Xcode.

  • 1158: Corrected a bug where the Script Debugger.plist file was not removed when exporting a script bundle or script application as Run-Only.

  • 1156: When codesigning, only the /Contents/Resources/Scripts/main.scpt file is locked to maintain the integrity of the bundle. In previous versions, all bundled .scpt and .scptd files were locked. You can revert to the previous behavior by setting the expert preference PrefLockAllBundleScripts to YES. Extended attributes are always removed from bundled scripts files, regardless, otherwise codesigning will fail.

  • 1147: Resolved a crash that can occur when testing scripts targeting an application which is under active development.

  • 1151: Resolved a problem where the Check For Updates menu item in Enhanced Applets is always disabled.

  • 1150: Updated the Enhanced Applet shell to include Sparkle v 1.20.0, including all localizations. The Enhanced Applet shell now includes the Main.strings file within its English localization to facilitate localization to other languages.

  • 1140: Resolved a problem where dragging an application into a script to generate a tell block failed to work.

  • 1145: Consolidated some lines to shorten the change text item delimiters clipping.

  • 1142: Resolved a problem where the ‘No code signing identities available` menu item is enabled when it should not be.

  • 1144: Worked around a High Sierra and later regression that prevents Script Debugger from properly activating target applications as you step through code.

  • 1143: Resolved a bug when exporting scripts as run-only with the ‘Make bundled scripts & libraries run-only’ option selected where QuickLook preview data remained within bundled scripts.

  • 894: Codesign menus are now also disabled if the xcode-select path is invalid.
