Apple has effectively killed AppleScript support in its latest versions of the iWorks apps. Probably not a surprise but a shock just the same. It's not a surprise because AppleScript support in Pages.app et al has never been very glamorous. But I don't have any doubts that the main consideration is the big part the iWorks apps play in Apple's iCloud/iCloud.com stategy and the security ramifications thereof. Anything that touches iCloud is pretty much hands-off to AppleScript.
Still, it's hard to sit helpless and watch AppleScript's maddeningly sad and frustrating march to irrelevance as iOS usage inevitably overtakes OS X.
Inter-app automation on iOS. Now that would cheer me up. There's hope, right?
