[prMac.com] Alameda, California - Karelia Software today released version 1.6.3 of Sandvox (R), its award-winning website design software for Mac OS X. Version 1.6.3 is a free, maintenance update and provides full compatibility with Apple's Safari 4 and Safari 4 WebKit and preliminary compatibility with Snow Leopard, Apple's Mac OS X version 10.6.
Responding to a subtle change introduced in Apple's WebKit framework, installed as part of Safari 4, version 1.6.3 fixes an issue with importing documents as new pages when dragging them directly into a Sandvox document. This update also improves the content of Movie Page RSS feeds, media handling, and MobileMe publishing. Sandvox 1.6.3 also updates to the latest Karelia iMedia Browser framework, fixing a few minor bugs.
A Universal Binary for PowerPC and Intel architectures, Sandvox 1.6 requires Mac OS X "Tiger" version 10.4.11, or "Leopard" version 10.5 and above, and is available in English, French, Danish, German, and both Simplified and Traditional Chinese. A single-user license to Sandvox costs $57 (USD); a single-user license for the Pro edition (enabling raw HTML editing plus additional Google integration) costs $97 (USD). Household licenses and site licenses are also available.
For a limited time (until August 7, 2009) Sandvox (Regular Edition) is available as part of the just-launched MacWeed Creative Bundle, along with twelve other Mac applications, including Interarchy, Voila, Media Catalog, and ImageFramer, for $49.99 (USD). Sandvox will be "unlocked" when 40,000 bundles have been sold.
More information about Sandvox is available at Karelia's website (created with Sandvox, of course). Review copies for traditional and online media are available.

Karelia Software is the California-based company that originally brought you Watson, the ground-breaking Macintosh Web utility, winner of the MacWorld "Eddy" and the Apple Design Award for "Most Innovative Application." Karelia is headed by Dan Wood and Terrence Talbot. We joined forces to create Sandvox when we realized that even for the technically inclined, it was just too painful to get words and pictures on the Web.
