Freeway 4.4 Pro/Express
Softpress has announced that on Friday, coinciding with the release of Mac OS X Leopard, it will launch v4.4 of Freeway Pro and Freeway Express, its web design utilities. Both are intended to eliminate the need for manual coding, relying mainly on the visual layout of HTML, which is compiled to fit intended design upon publishing to FTP or .Mac; while Express is limited mainly to HTML, Pro switches to XHTML with CSS styling, keeping the option of reverting to tables for older browsers. The v4.4 upgrades will add compatibility with Leopard's "Quick Look" feature, letting users preview documents with more detail before opening them.
The upgrade will be free, but will also require an earlier Freeway 4 serial number before the download can begin. The complete Express is currently a $90 download, while Pro is set at $250. Both versions of Freeway are Universal Binaries for Mac OS X 10.2.8 or higher.
