AppleScript Release Notes for Mac OS X 10.5

This one sentence alone makes it a major upgrade:

AppleScript is now entirely Unicode-based.

But there’s a ton of additional good stuff — I think it’s safe to say this really is a “2.0” release, the biggest linguistic upgrade to AppleScript ever. (Still no sign of the updated AppleScript Language Guide promised by Apple, though.)
