Keyboard Maestro 4 Teaser - Clipboard Switcher

Clipboard History Switcher

Keyboard Maestro 4 is well in to development, and anyone who purchases Keyboard Maestro 3 after May 1 will receive a free upgrade.

Normally I don’t say anything about future versions until they are released, but in an effort to generate a bit of buzz I figured I would show off some of the stuff as it is (more or less) completed.

My aim for version 4 is to be Cocoa buzzword compliant, which means lots of nice swishy user interface features. The engine is essentially complete (in fact it is only a couple API calls off being 64-bit ready, although whether I will ship a 64-bit version remains to be decided).

The engine now has HUD style clipboard history (pictured) and named clipboard switchers, including a search field with lovely animations as you filter clipboard or add or remove clipboard items, as well as image and styled text displays.

Currently I hope to have version 4 out in Q3, but that will depend somewhat on what does and doesn‘t make the cut, although I will probably err on the sooner side and ship further features in version 4.1, 4.2 etc as I did for version 3.1 through 3.5.

But there is still plenty more to do, so its back to work for me.

Hey Pete, the new version looks great it's an we use here at imattic and we are looking forward to version 4.0. As you say above, "although whether I will ship a 64-bit version remains to be decided" i do think that a 64-bit version would be the best decision since at some point in the future you'll have to cross that bridge and by releasing it in 64-bit now any bugs / performance issues you come across in 4.0 you will have solved by say 4.2/4.4. I hope this helps you make your decision and can't wait for the next version.
