The first sneak preview of v2 is the Workflows feature. See examples of how workflows can be used to look at movie trailers, upload files to Flickr or feed results back into Alfred.Read More
After many months of work in secret, we can officially announce that Alfred version 2 is coming! Rewritten from the ground up, v2 will be even more polished and user-friendly than ever. The first beta is expected in early January.Read More
Yesterday, Apple released iTunes 11, bringing on some changes to the way external applications like Alfred can interact with it. Andrew has been working hard today to make a few fixes to keep your experience with Alfred's Mini Player enjoyable. We'd also love to support the iTunes "Up Next" feature, so we're keeping an eye on whether Apple adds AppleScript support for this!
Here's what's changed
We updated the way Alfred sets the tracks you've asked him to play, so be sure to keep the Alfred playlist checkbox enabled in the preferences so that your tracks play in a predictable order.
A few hotkeys were also updated; the "random track" hotkey has changed *from Cmd + Alt + up arrow to Cmd + Ctrl + Up arrow), and so were the star hotkeys (from Cmd + Alt + # to Cmd + Ctrl + #)
We also removed iTunes DJ, as this is no longer support by iTunes 11.
Help us test
Release 1.3.2 will go out to everyone through Alfred's auto-updater once it's fully tested, but in the meantime, if you're using iTunes 11 and would like to help us test the changes to the Mini Player, you can download it here.
Today, Alfred 1.3.1 has been released. The main new feature of this release is especially for Mountain Lion users; you can now use Notification Centre instead of Growl for extensions and general Alfred notifications. Another handy improvement for Powerpack users is that when copying/moving files, Alfred will remember the destination folders, making it easier to move files next time!
This release also includes some nice bug fixes and little improvements, which you can find in the Change Log. Note that if you're already using pre-release build 261, there's no need to update as this is the same build. Otherwise, check for updates in-app or download version 1.3.1 from our website.
Wishing everyone a great weekend, Vero
