The ability of function keys to launch things is a feature of OS 9 that has been dropped in Mac OS X for some reason. Xkeys brings it back and combines it with the functionality of the Fkey Expander.
Version 1.1.1 adds the following:
- Fixed a possible crash during startup.
- Fixed a problem where some Apple Scripts could not be executed by Xkeys.
- Re-enabled the F15 key.
- Mac OS X 10.3.2 or later
