AutoHotkey 1.1.05.02

Customize your keyboard, joystick and mouse with an open source automation and hotkey utility that is backward compatible with AutoIt. It includes a quick-start tutorial, an automatic script writer that records and plays back your keystrokes and mouse clicks, and a comprehensive help file. The program can remap keys and buttons, and make almost any key, joystick button, mouse button, or combination into a hotkey. It also allows you to define abbreviations that expand as you type them (auto-replace); create custom GUI windows and menu bars; retrieve or change the volume, mute, and other settings of any soundcard; hide/close/resize any window; use a joystick as a mouse; retrieve and change the clipboard's contents; display dialog boxes, tooltips, balloon tips, and popup menus; and create your own stand-alone EXE files that can be run on any computer.

Features:

  • Automate almost anything by sending keystrokes and mouse clicks. You can write a mouse or keyboard macro by hand or use the macro recorder.
  • Create hotkeys for keyboard, joystick, and mouse. Virtually any key, button, or combination can become a hotkey.
  • Expand abbreviations as you type them. For example, typing "btw" can automatically produce "by the way".
  • Create custom data-entry forms, user interfaces, and menu bars. See GUI for details.
  • Remap keys and buttons on your keyboard, joystick, and mouse.
  • Respond to signals from hand-held remote controls via the WinLIRC client script.
  • Run existing AutoIt v2 scripts and enhance them with new capabilities.
  • Convert any script into an EXE file that can be run on computers that don't have AutoHotkey installed.

Changelog:

  • Fixed false detection of end-of-file when loading a compiled script in some cases.
  • Fixed SendInput to automatically release modifier keys when sending special characters or {U+xxxx} (which was broken by v1.1.00.01).
  • Fixed ComObjConnect to filter out non-dispatch interfaces instead of allowing the script to crash.
  • Fixed new %VarContainingClassName%().

Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) has a bug with AutoHotkey compiled EXEs that causes it to hang and consume 50% of the CPU for long periods of time. Hope I can report it during this MSE v3 beta.

Yet AutoIt, which is a far more "advanced" language gets no mention?

Since AHK source is based off of AU3, it annoys me to see AHK get more coverage with it's fugly syntax etc.
