Full Specifications

What's new in version 5.2
  • Platypus apps can now register as URL scheme handlers and receive opened URLs as arguments to script
  • Platypus apps can now accept dragged URLs
  • Platypus apps that accept dropped files now have an Open Recent menu
  • New syntax to create submenus in Status Menu interface type
  • Relative paths are now supported in Platypus Profiles, but only through manual editing. Platypus app and CLT still generate Profiles with absolute paths.
  • Platypus now warns about about identical file names in bundled files
  • Droplet apps now quit when their window is closed
  • Updated and improved example profiles demonstrating new features
  • Text in Platypus apps now has a minimum font size
  • The Platypus Profile format has changed slightly in this version, but old formats can still be read
  • Fixed annoying issue where status menu would render before receiving all script output
  • Fixed performance issue with printing many lines to text window. It is now very fast again.
  • Fixed issue where loading certain Example profiles would cause Platypus to crash
  • Fixed bug where "Use as template" was shown when Status Item mode was "Text"
  • Fixed bug where command line tool failed to infer app name from script filename, resulting in "(null).app"
  • Fixed bug where files that had been moved were not colored red in Bundled Files list
  • Fixed bug where valid menu items were disabled in Action menu
  • Fixed issue with console spamming due to missing CFBundleTypeRole. Now always "Viewer".
  • Fixed bug where text settings were not properly loaded by the GUI
  • Fixed bug where bundling files with the -f flag didn't work in the command line tool
  • Fixed issue where status menu settings would not be restored to defaults on clear
  • Fixed bug where the command line tool would erroneously try to validate whole argument strings instead of individual UTI strings
  • Fixed bug where suffix editing buttons remained enabled when they shouldn't be
  • Got rid of text encoding settings. Platypus now uses UTF8 for everything, and you should too.
  • Got rid of "Secure bundled script" option, which was useless bullshit anyway
  • Fixed issue where main application window would not remember its last position
  • Updated documentation & man page
  • Various minor interface refinements
