Softpress Systems has announced the release of Freeway Express and Freeway Pro v4.2, an update to its Web site design software for Mac OS X. The new update — free for registered users — includes Freeway Shop, a free-to-use e-commerce system.
Freeway generates HTML code based a visual interface that’s design-centric. You can create master pages to maintain a consistent design across your site, incorporate QuickTime and Flash content, publish in HTML 4-compliant code, upload using FTP and .Mac, and much more. The Pro version adds multiple output options, Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) text styling and layout and more. It’s available as a Universal Binary for Intel and PowerPC-based Macs.
Freeway Shop uses Mal’s e-commerce system for its back-end functionality. It lets you create catalog pages, shopping carts and connect to payment authorization schemes.
Other new features in the 4.2 update include a fix for a previously reported issue with Eolas/Explorer, speed enhancements and the addition of a Save as Template feature.
A 30-day free trial version is available for download.
