This started out as just a hack to get the keyboard shortcuts to work, but has ended up as a major revision (for MacOSX)

  • removed backward compatibility... needs at least wish8.5
  • fixed Mac keyboard shortcuts
  • changed menus and keyboard shortcut behavior for fast MOO editting
  • added Automator MacApp installer

I must also add that I have never wasted as much time on such unreadable code in my life. Overloading menu creation code, hardcode entry labels, and no comments cost me a single solid day of headache. ARGH!
