Platypus 1.5

Platypus is a MacOS X program for creating application wrappers around scripts, i.e. creating MacOS X applications that execute a script they are bundled with. Scripts can thus be run transparently from the graphical window environment without running them manually from the command line and made to integrate seamlessly with the user interface.

* Platypus apps now remain running while root-privileged scripts finish executing
* Invisible files and folders are now shown in Navigation dialogs
* Navigation dialogs use newer API calls, support app names longer than 31 characters and are non-modal
* Platypus apps can now be set to display a progress bar while running
* Platypus apps are now threaded, which means that the interface is responsive while they're running
* Some interface tweaks and bug fixes
