has updated Sandvox, its visual Web page editor for Mac OS X, to version 1.0.1. Primarily a bug fix for the software’s first public release, Sandvox 1.0.1 is a free update for registered users. Sandvox costs $39 for the regular version, $69 for its Pro version, and it requires Mac OS X v10.4.4 or higher.
Sandvox provides a visual Web page creation environment that lets you drag and drop photos and other content into place. It features a variety of templates to create rich-looking sites, lets you publish using any Web page provider, or even on your own Mac, supports podcasting, photo sharing and more. The pro version adds raw HTML editing and other advanced features.
Version 1.0.1 adds numerous fixes to publishing for .Mac, WebDAV, FTP and SFTP; repairs French localization; corrects a problem with inline images; fixes a “Gathering Media Assets” stalling problem and more. Complete release notes are in the application.
The developers noted that “a more comprehensive bugfix release” is coming within a couple of weeks, but Sandvox wanted to get this update out “to tackle the most critical problems.”
