Karelia Announces Sandvox 1.2.1

ALAMEDA, CA, USA, June 6, 2007: Karelia Software announces the release of version 1.2.1 of Sandvox™, the easy, elegant website creation tool for people who want to spend time developing their lives, not their websites.

"Version 1.2.1 is a significant upgrade to Sandvox's performance," noted Dan Wood, cocreator of Sandvox. "We've been able to increase its responsiveness, speeding up the process of creating and editing pages, of navigating through large sites, and of generating HTML."

Recent versions of Sandvox, particularly 1.2 and 1.2.1 betas, have garnered much praise from existing customers. Improvements in performance, stability, and memory management have proven irresistible for new customers, and Karelia has seen sales of Sandvox increase notably.

"The increase in positive customer feedback since 1.2 has been rewarding and has spurred us to continue to enhance Sandvox," said Terrence Talbot. "We're pleased that customers are happy with the improved responsiveness and with 1.2's enhancements, particularly swappable banner images, more design choices, a draft mode for work-in-progress, and pagelets that incorporate Web 2.0 social sites (including Digg, del.icio.us, and Flickr). Our Amazon.com pagelet has made linking to Amazon choices and sharing lists even easier."

"Users of the Pro Edition tell us that we're giving them the sophistication and functionality they want," added Dan Wood. "Code Injection, resizable windows for editing raw HTML, and the inclusion of Google Webmaster tools are allowing users with HTML, JavaScript, CSS, and PHP experience to create very sophisticated sites very quickly."

Sandvox 1.2.1 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. Sandvox features drag-and-drop website assembly, live editing without a preview mode, over forty stylish designs, and seventeen different Pagelets, a Karelia innovation that makes it easy to build a modern, dynamic website. Sandvox 1.2.1, a Universal Binary for PowerPC and Intel architectures, requires Mac OS X "Tiger" version 10.4.4 and above. Sandvox is also available in French, Italian, Danish, German, Japanese, Simplified and Traditional Chinese. More information about Sandvox is available at Karelia's website (created with Sandvox, of course).
