I’ve just put together the first 1.3.1 development release with a few nice fixes including adding support for Notification Center in OS X 10.8.
This is a very early build and the beginning of my experimentation, so expect some quirks, but if you would like to have a bit of a play with this, grab the development build now :)
I can’t live without Alfred on OS X; pretty excited to hear there’s more to come :)
I’ve been trying Chuck.app as an alternative. I’m usually running 3 Windows VMs, IntelliJ, Emacs, and ~10 chrome tabs at once and apparently that’s overwhelming enough that that Alfred is sometimes slow to respond. Not by any fault of its own, I think, just because I’m trying to do too much all at once. Chuck does live up to its reputation of being lightweight, but I’m finding myself running into a lot of instances where the behavior isn’t the same as in Alfred and it’s distracting enough that I lose focus. Also, Chuck doesn’t have as many things available in its suggestions - no system commands (sleep!) or system preferences (although you can get to them, just not directly). Moreover, Chuck’s development seems to have stopped? The website doesn’t load anyway, whereas Alfred is obviously still going :) So, I’ll be switching back to Alfred henceforth.
Point is, Alfred is awesome, and I don’t even have the PowerPack yet, which I’m planning to buy. Definitely one of the first apps I install on my new OS X machines, and highly recommended to anyone using OS X.
