[prMac.com] Oxford, United Kingdom - Softpress today announced the immediate availability of Freeway 6 Pro and Express, the latest in their line of award-winning visual web-design applications. New features in this version include HTML5 and CSS3 output, automatic form handling and visitor comments, along with numerous improvements and enhancements.
Freeway, the powerful web-design application, makes it incredibly easy to design, build, and publish unique websites, without writing code. It also produces email newsletters that work beautifully in all email clients, and websites that work excellently as interactive presentations.
Freeway feels very familiar if you've done any page-layout work before. Just draw items and move them freely on the page - think desktop publishing for the web. Adding dynamic functionality such as e-commerce, multimedia, and navigation menus to your sites is straight-forward - and of course everything is completely customizable.
This new version makes it a breeze to incorporate all the latest technologies available to web designers. Both Pro and Express now output HTML5 as standard, allowing users to easily add mobile-friendly multimedia to their sites. Pro users have the ability to use new HTML5 element types and form controls.
Along with added CSS3 styling, modernized code-generation, greater control over the appearance of form items, built-in form-processing, visitor comments, new social media sharing buttons, enhanced CSS layouts for creating flexible and fluid layouts, improved mobile support, and more, this new version is not one to be missed.
"We're super-excited about Freeway 6," said Joe Billings, Softpress Managing Director. "Freeway 6 is really going to open up the possibilities available to our users. People had already been creating amazing sites with the previous version using technologies like responsive layouts and web fonts. These are only going to get better with Freeway 6."
