Karelia Announces Sandvox 1.2.3

ALAMEDA, CA, USA, October 2, 2007: Karelia Software announces the release of version 1.2.3 of Sandvox™, its award-winning website creation software for Mac OS X.

Version 1.2.3 offers many enhancements, including:

- Optimizations that greatly speed up performance when publishing large sites;

- Automatic support for PicLens, a Safari plugin that generates full-screen slideshows, in all photo albums and photo weblogs;

- Support for .Mac Personal Domains;

- Improved InternetExplorer 7 compatibility;

- Improved handling of embedded images; and

- Improvements to the iMedia Browser and help documentation.

Sandvox features drag-and-drop website assembly, live editing without a preview mode, over forty stylish designs, and seventeen different Pagelets. It's the easy, elegant website creation tool for people who want to spend time developing their lives, not their websites.

With that in mind, Karelia is pleased to showcase sites created by customers who are using Sandvox to share information about their lives, businesses, and special events. "We've had so many customers write to us with their success stories that we decided to add a customer site gallery to Karelia's own site," said Terrence Talbot. "As a software developer you expect to receive bug reports, but it's gratifying to receive spontaneous positive feedback from users who find that Sandvox is really the website tool they've been looking for."

Sandvox 1.2.3 is available for downloading and purchase from Karelia's website at <http://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 1.2.3, 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, and both Simplified and Traditional Chinese.
