[prMac.com] Oxford, UK - Softpress Systems today launched version 5.3.1 of Freeway, its award-winning website design software. This latest update includes a full Japanese localization as well as some enhancements and bug fixes. The Japanese version is available now in both Freeway 5 Express and Freeway 5 Pro multi-language downloads from the Softpress website.
Special offer sales and downloads of Freeway 5.3.1 (Japanese and English only) will be available from our Japanese distributor, act2, in the near future.
Mr. M. Kato, President of act2 (Japan) said "Freeway 5.3.1 is a wonderful release of an already great product. It gets better every time. For professional or novice web designers, it's all about the design; the code just happens. We are excited about version 5 coming out in Japan."
Softpress Managing Director Richard Logan added "We are very pleased to offer the Japanese version to our loyal and enthusiastic users. Freeway 5 is the perfect tool to express their creativity across all browsers and platforms."
In addition to the groundbreaking features in its initial release (CSS menus, Google Actions, Blogger templates, script.aculo.us Actions and dozens more), Freeway 5 now includes iPhone Actions to create QuickTime movies of different qualities, automatic device and network speed detection, and the ability to serve the most appropriate content to each visitor.
5.3.1 adds functionality to control the initiation of movie content as well as the ability to employ iPhone redirects - the iPhone or iPod Touch user can be redirected to a page that has been designed specifically for them. For more details, the very useful "Building websites for the iPhone with Freeway" document can be found on the Softpress website.
