Karelia Announces Sandvox 1.1.2

ALAMEDA, CA, USA, April 3, 2007: Karelia Software is pleased to announce the release of version 1.1.2 of Sandvox™, the pioneering website building application for Macintosh OS X.

"Since the release of 1.1 in December, and 1.1.1 in Janurary, our focus has been responding to customer feedback, enhancing many features, and speeding up others. Dan and I are committed to making Sandvox the premier website development application for Mac users, and 1.1.2 is another step toward that goal" said Terrence Talbot, cocreator of Sandvox.

Many improvements in Sandvox 1.1.2 make it a must-download for current users and an excellent release for new users. Version 1.1.2 features:

An improved enhanced iMedia browser and improved video management for WMV and QuickTime files;

Faster, more efficient processing of high-volume photo pages and collections;

A font collection of web-safe fonts within the Font panel;

Optimizations that improve the overall speed of working with documents, images, audio, and video;

Fixes of bugs and annoyances in response to user feedback; and

Updates to nearly 200 pages of online help for new and experienced users;

"The community of Sandvox customers has been exceptionally helpful to us, and we're very pleased to be able to issue a release that addresses more of their requests," said Dan Wood. "At times the volume of feedback is almost overwhelming, but having engaged customers who share their experiences is invaluable."

Sandvox 1.1.2 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 1.1.2, 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, German, Japanese, and Simplified Chinese.
