AppleScript Studio released to developers System
The December Developer Tools download and mailing contains AppleScript Studio, previewed earlier this year to great reviews.

This story originally stated that the tools were available for general download by any registered developer (including free online-only developers). Unfortunately, this appears not to be the case. I had followed a link off the VersionTracker page, logged in, saw the tools, and assumed they were being generally distributed. This was an incorrect assumption on my part. At this point, it appears that only those developers who receive the Developer Tools' mailings on CD-ROM have the ability to download the December release which includes the AppleScript Studio.

UPDATE:

Quoting Apple: "The December 2001 Mac OS X Developer Tools will be available as a free download or for purchase on CD-ROM from the ADC Member Site during the week of December 10. All ADC Online members will be notified via email when the Tools become available."

I can't stand the wait
Authored by: sjonke on Dec 05, '01 02:58:16PM

Really, I can't. It looks sweet. Now, if only more of OS X's own applications were scriptable. Why isn't Java Launcher scriptable, for example? I can script terminal to launch a java applet, but then there is no dock icon and thus no way to select from a list of windows. When an applet is run via Applet Launcher you get all that, but I can't "tell" Applet Launcher to do anything useful because it isn't scriptable. Oh well, maybe that's in 10.1.2 as well....

Not sure about that
Authored by: bhines on Dec 05, '01 04:28:21PM

Actually, USERS require 10.1.2 to use the AppleScriptKit framework. The framework also comes with the dev tools, from the way i read the PDF.

Thus you don't need 10.1.2 to use A.S.S, you just need the devtools. However the apps it creates will only work on 10.1.2.

A Really Stupid Queston ...
Authored by: Brad Puett on Dec 06, '01 12:35:54AM

If mere pee-ons (like myself :^) can't get the AppleScript Studio because we don' t have 10.1.2, but Developers with paid memberships (Premier and Select) can, then that implies that those Developers (with paid memberships) have already be seeded 10.1.2. Otherwise, they wouldn' t be able to use AppleScript Studio either.

So has 10.1.2 already been seeded to non-pee-on Developers ??

Or is Apple "feeding" us a story to keep us from screaming again so soon?!

In order to be able to run ASS or ASS derived Apps you need either:

A) 10.1 and the newest dev tools (becuase they have the ASS frameworks)

or

B) 10.1.2 (because that will come with the newest frameworks)

So, anybody who installes the dev tools is covered. If you don't want the dev tools on your machine, then you will have to upgrade to 10.1.2.

General availability of Dev Tools
Authored by: robg on Dec 08, '01 09:53:27AM
My free online-only ADC account received an email this morning noting the following:
Apple has released the December 2001 Mac OS X Developer Tools, a complete suite of tools that enable developers to create applications, frameworks, libraries, plug-in bundles, kernel extensions, and device drivers for Mac OS X. This release includes Project Builder, Apple's integrated development environment for Mac OS X and Interface Builder, Apple's graphical user interface editor. The flagship feature of this release is the new script application development plug-in for Project Builder, AppleScript Studio. The December 2001 Mac OS X Developer Tools will be available as a free download or for purchase on CD-ROM from the ADC Member Site during the week of December 10. All ADC Online members will be notified via email when the Tools become available.
The entire email is available online here: http://developer.apple.com/devnews/ The connect.apple.com site is currently down, so I can't verify if the Dev Tools are actually there for download now, but they should be online sometime next week at the latest.
