[NTG-context] For the Mac users: AppleScript to launch ConTeXt in a flexile way

Hi Thomas,

I use MacOS X 1.10.3.
I downloaded the new script and now I can run it (though the system asks me whether I am sure about the origin of the script…) and once the button next to SystemUIServer has been checked in the Preferences/Securtity and Privacy pane, your script does everything as expected.

It is very useful especially for updating the ConTeXt standalone folders while keeping a copy of previous ones (if one decides to do so).
Maybe once you have mastered Swift, the new programming interface, you’ll give us a complete GUI program… :-)

Thanks again: OK
