This Workflow allows you to easily create a new file in the Mac OS Finder by typing new into Alfred. You can also setup pre-populated templates for filetypes (instructions on my blog). I have also added a hotkey option. You can specify the hotkey from your Alfred Workflow window (I find CTRL + ALT + N works quite nicely).
This is a re-write of the Alfred 1.x extension I released last year. Once again I'd like to thank Chris Kalafarski (farski) for improving the first ever version of my script.

I hope you find this as useful as I do. To those who may not use Finder, I plan to add Path Finder support at some point in the future!
