Script Debugger 4.0.6b4

I am preparing yet another Script Debugger 4 maintenance release. This release addresses some annoying issues that have surfaced since the 4.0.5 release.

I decided to do one more round of beta testing because this build includes changes to the bundled compiled script and bundled script application saving code and I want to ensure that these changes are solid before releasing the product widely.

BETA NOTE: Keep backups of your bundled compiled scripts and bundled script applications when you begin using this build of Script Debugger just in case there is a problem and you need to recover.

You can download the software here:

Universal build requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later (13.1MB)

If you are running 10.3 (Panther), you need to use this version instead (10MB)

Changes in 4.0.6b4:

13586 – Addressed a problem where the variable name ‘errMsg’ is not displayed by the debugger in ‘on error’ handlers when the variable name ‘errNum’ is also used.

13587 – Script Debugger can now open text scripts incorrectly tagged as compiled scripts by the script file’s HFS file type.

13650 – The CFBundleName property list key no longer includes a random number when exporting run-only bundled applications.

13474 – Improved the on-line documentation for debugging Folder Actions handlers.

13472 – Improved the on-line documentation concerning the saving of event log settings with script documents.

13647, 13648 – Subversion .svn directories (and other custom directories located outside the Contents/Resources directory) are now properly preserved when saving bundled compiled scripts and bundled script applications.

13649 – The CFBundleIdnetifier and CFBundleShortVersionString property list keys are now preserved when saving bundled compiled scripts and bundled script applications.

Release notes for previous builds


  1. Hey Mark. Glad to see you started a blog. One thing that I’d like to put in as a request is to be able to set up custom keyboard shortcuts. Failing that, at least set up keyboard shortcuts for comment/uncomment. I’ve tried using OS X’s built-in method (from the Keyboard preference pane) but SD doesn’t respond to the added keyboard shortcuts.

    I’m also a huge fan of Affrus. My only gripe with that app is the horizontal split of the interface when debugging. I would prefer to see it split vertically. Perhaps you could make it a user preference, similar to how Panic’s Coda application works.

  2. I have another request. Make “Find Again” wrap when it reaches the end of a document.

  3. Belay that last request. I didn’t realize I had to turn on the option in the Find window in order for it to work when using the command-G keyboard shortcut.
