Late last month, we released a small but important update for Pulsar, our Sirius/XM radio player. This update provides extended AppleScript support of Pulsar, providing more control to scripts and external applications.
The first application to take full advantage of this new functionality is Icon Factory’s Take Five on the Mac. With Take Five, you can pause your music and have it automatically unpause after a predetermined amount of time. Initially working only with iTunes, Take Five’s newest release now works with several audio players on the Mac, including Pulsar!
Pulsar 2.3 also includes preliminary support for Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion), as well as several minor fixes and improvements. If you’re a Pulsar user on Mac OS X 10.6 or up, run Check For Update from the Pulsar menu right now and you’ll get the latest. If you haven’t checked out Pulsar yet, you can learn more and download the free trial over on the Pulsar page.
Finally, if you’re a developer who’d like to control Pulsar via AppleScript, please see this page.
