Tension Software has updated Cronette (http://pomola.com/products_cronette/cronette.html), a Cocoa task launcher for Macs and Mac servers, to version 1.4. A new “At Document Opening on Days” option allows a user to specify a task to be launched at document opening (or Cronette opening or Mac startup) if the day matches with the selected plan and for a specified maximum runs per day.

Cronette lets you specify tasks to be launched automatically by the Mac. It can be used on unattended Mac Servers or also on regular Mac workstations for tasks to execute during the night or for recurring tasks to be performed on a regular basis. It provides different type of launch tasks: daily, weekly, monthly, yearly.

Any task can be specified to launch different type of execution: open applications or documents from disk; open different type of URL; execute different type of actions: restart, shutdown, sleep; sending a message to the log; execute a complex UNIX command.

Cronette costs US$30 for a single user license, though version 1.4 is a free update for registered users. A demo is available for download. Cronette requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher.
