Freeway 5.1 adds RSS
Softpress has released the first major update to Freeway 5, its WYSIWYG web design tool. The base application distinguishes itself with features such as CSS menus, and Google and script.aculo.us Actions; new in v5.1 is the ability to publish a feed from a page, using the RSS Feed Action. Designers can now also import SVG vector graphics, whether for conversion to JPEG, GIF or PNG, or simply as a pass-through to a finished page.
Further changes include "numerous fixes and enhancements," among which is the ability to assign in-flow block items as either CSS- or table-based. Freeway 5 Express is $80, while the Pro edition is $250; v5.1 is a free download from the Softpress website.
