-Optional Caps lock disable prevents the irritating way Maya works when caps lock is accidentally turned on.
-System for keeping other scripts organized and managing multiple userSetup.mel files.

-Tools to automate tedious tasks involved in rigging, such as making control objects

This version is tested with Maya 2014. Other versions are available on the website, which support various versions of Maya. The tools have been tested on Windows, and some testing has also been done on Linux. OSX users also report sucess in running it on that platform. Although some features are Windows specific, most features should work on Linux, Irix, and MacOSX. (The optional capslock disable and roadkill are however windows specific.)
