this might interest all AHK aficionados here. AutoHotkey has had some big changes recently. Chris Mallett (the author) has officially handed over the reins of AutoHotkey.com in terms of ownership and design. His version of AHK is now termed 'Basic'. And the prominent fork that is, AutoHotkey_L is slated to be the official "latest version" of AutoHotkey.
AHK_L which is helmed by Lexikos is in brisk development with some enhancements such as Unicode and native 64-bit support. This project is now in testing for v2.0 (alpha release).
You may head over to the 'announcements' section at their forums (which btw has had a facelift too) to view all the postings.
