Karelia Updates Sandvox to 1.1

ALAMEDA, CA, USA, December 14, 2006: Karelia Software is pleased to announce the release of version 1.1 of Sandvox™, the pioneering website building application for Macintosh OS X.

"The updates since the 1.0 release are compelling and address the avalanche of feedback and requests we've received from the community of Sandvox users," said Dan Wood, cocreator of Sandvox. Added Terrence Talbot: "The focus for 1.1 has been stability. Weid've rewritten some of Sandvox's internals from the ground up in order to make the program solid and reliable. We've also made a huge number of bugfixes that the release notes cannot adequately capture."

Among the new features and improvements in Sandvox 1.1:

* Eight gorgeous new site designs: Users now have more than thirty designs from which to choose as the basis of their site.

* A comprehensive and completely integrated Help feature, including step-by-step "How do I...?" questions and answers

* A snapshot feature to cleanly save work that's in progress

* Greatly improved Flash file support

Sandvox 1.1 is available for downloading and purchase from Karelia's website at www.karelia.com in both regular and Pro editions. Single-user licenses are US$49.00 and US$79.00, respectively. Household licenses (allowing multiple users in one household) and site licenses are also available.

Developed with individuals, families, students, schools, and small businesses in mind, Sandvox features drag-and-drop website assembly, live editing without a preview mode, over thirty stylish designs, and over a dozen types of innovative Pagelets, small areas of content that reside within a web page's sidebar.

Sandvox 1.1, a Universal Binary for PowerPC and Intel architectures, requires Mac OS X "Tiger" version 10.4.4 and above. Because the Web isn't limited to English-language sites, Sandvox is also available in French, Italian, Danish, Dutch, Simplified Chinese [and one other Asian language...?].

Terrence Talbot also noted that "Over the months, while working hard on this new version, we've watched our users around the world build thousands of beautiful websites with Sandvox. It's amazingly gratifying to see the incredible variety, and how flexible and creative Sandvox users have been."
