When Apple was touting Automator as part of the 10.4 Tiger upgrade, many people began to wonder whether AppleScript was needed at all. Of course, now that we've seen Automator it's clear that it's needed more than ever: if nothing else, there are holes in the way Automator works for those applications that support it, and there are plenty of applications that don't. Some things, however, are worth the wait. Script Debugger 4.0, Late Night Software's flagship AppleScript editor, is a ground-up rewrite of what was an already excellent product. Even if we do still need to edit AppleScripts, Apple already includes an AppleScript editor, so why bother with a third-party replacement? Well, Script Debugger 4.0 is much more than just an editor.
