The PyATOM team is proud to announce the initial release of PyATOM.

About PyATOM:

Short for Automated Testing on Macintosh, PyATOM is the first Python
library to fully enable GUI testing of Macintosh applications via the
Apple Accessibility API. This library was created out of desperation.
Existing tools such as using appscript to send messages to
accessibility objects are painful to write and slow to use. PyATOM has
direct access to the API. It's fast and easy to use to write tests.

Changes in this release:

It's the first public release, so none yet!

Special thanks:
The VMware Fusion automation team
Nagappan Alagappan and the LDTP team
