[prMac.com] Quechee, Vermont – PFiddlesoft today announced the release of version 2.7.0 of its popular product, UI Browser, the “ultimate assistant” for GUI Scripting with AppleScript, and a developer utility for exploring Apple’s Accessibility API.
UI Browser helps you to explore, manipulate, and monitor the user interface of most macOS applications running on your computer. With the push of a button, it also generates AppleScript statements to control any application using GUI Scripting, even applications that are not otherwise scriptable. No other utility provides all of the information you need in order to write scripts using GUI Scripting.
Version 2.7.0 of UI Browser adds support for new Accessibility features introduced in macOS High Sierra 10.13. It also incorporates new PFAssistive Framework 3.8.0 and PFEventTaps Framework 1.5.5 and includes minor bug fixes.
UI Browser is based on the PFiddlesoft Frameworks, including the PFAssistive and PFEventTaps Frameworks. The frameworks are written using Objective-C, and they support 64-bit architectures using reference counted memory management and ARC. Developers can license the PFiddlesoft Frameworks for distribution or use with their own products that use Apple’s Accessibility and Quartz Event Taps technologies. The frameworks may be licensed free of charge for personal use or for distribution or use with a free software product.
A modest license fee is required to distribute or use the frameworks with a product for which payment is requested or required. Source code is available for a separate fee. Different terms apply to large or established commercial software developers.
