Platypus 1.6

Platypus is a 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 having to resort to using the command line interface.

* New option to create droppable apps that pass files as arguments to script (like DropScript)
* Fixed a nasty bug where Platypus apps would become freeze up after failed authentication
* Platypus apps with progress bar now have a "Cancel" button
* Minor user interface enhancements in both Platypus and Platypus-generated apps
