New, preview-ish version of appscript (0.6.0) now posted at:
Feel free to kick the wheels. :)
This is a ground-up rewrite, implementing appscript as a wrapper
round the lower-level aem package. It lacks the automatic reference
validation of previous versions (this could be provided as an
optional extension) so won't catch user errors like badly-formed
references. OTOH, it's much more forgiving of buggy application
terminology resources (a common problem). References also lack
built-in help() methods at this point, though could add them in again
later if folk think they'd be useful.
Sorting out documentation is next, after which I'll start on Apple
Event Object Model support for aem.receive. Comments, suggestions,
brickbats, etc. to the usual address, ta.
p.s. One minor change in the aem and appscript APIs: the NOT() method
used in constructing test references has been replaced with a NOT
property. Otherwise, they should be identical to before.
