[prMac.com] Alameda, California - In celebration of Inauguration Day, Karelia Software has released version 1.5.4 of Sandvox (R), its award-winning website creation software for Mac OS X. Version 1.5.4 is a maintenance release that adds important updates, including new support for the JS-Kit comments service. This new version is compatible with the recently released version (1.5) of the Sandvox Developers' Kit. To take advantage of new plugins from Karelia and third parties, Karelia is urging all current users to update, and is inviting others to jump in the Sandvox and give it a try.
Sandvox 1.5.4 is available for downloading on a trial basis and for purchase in both Regular and Pro editions from Karelia's website. Single-user licenses are regularly $49.00 (USD) and $79.00 (USD) respectively.
Sandvox 1.5 comes bundled with 50 designs, and additional designs are available free to those who sign up for Karelia's email list. Other quality designs are available from Jumsoft, Blueball Design, and Sandvox Web Designs, with more third-party designs available soon.
A Universal Binary for PowerPC and Intel architectures, Sandvox 1.5.4 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.
More information about Sandvox is available at Karelia's website (created with Sandvox, of course). Review copies for traditional and online media are available. Please direct requests to Media Matters and include your name along with your publication's or podcast's name and/or URL and any information about particular features or needs of special interest to your readership or audience.
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.
