As many expected, Apple announced improvements to iWork to stem off criticism. As with FCPX’s disastrous introduction a lot of the criticism could have been avoided had Apple merely announced this from the start. The lack of Applescript for Page is surprising although it was problematic in so many other ways that needed addressed first. So the lack of Applescript isn’t surprising there. What’s good about this is that I think Apple (and more importantly the main Apple VPs) heard how important scripting is to people. I think it had become out of sight, out of mind.
