Sandvox 1.5.2 update

Karelia has posted an update for Sandvox, its website creation utility. The software attempts to simplify site creation through the use of drag-and-drop interface, and features such as templates, tagless editing, and built-in publishing tools; the Pro edition is required for direct coding of HTML. The v1.5.2 update mainly introduces faster file handling, and better stability; also present is a newer iMedia Browser, with better live updating of music, movie, photo and link content.

Other changes include a variety of unspecified improvements to items such as contact forms, photo grids, Amazon lists, sitemaps and page archives. Sandvox runs on Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later, and is priced at $50 for the Regular edition. The Pro edition costs $80, and shoppers can also pick up multi-user licenses.

    Won't Let It Go

    I'm a big believer in buying your software. I had actually purchased Watson twice because I wanted it on both my machines, it was a great utility. Apple kinda shafted Karelia by copying the over all look, feel, and function of Watson into Sherlock. Karelia sold Watson to Sun, who was supposedly going to develop it; I don't know what Sun actually did with it, but it was the end of the Mac Version. I ended up feeling like Karelia shafted me and all the other Watson users. When Apple updated Sherlock it's like Karelia just threw up their hands and gave up, and it was the end users that lost. Karelia should have continued innovating and improving Watson, no doubt it would have been something completely different by now. Due to this I just won't ever buy software from Karelia again, I'd rather spend my money buying innovative Mac software like Delicious Library and OmniFocus. I not only love the software, but I pay for the upgrades with confidence that they'll continue to work hard to improve their products and not just sell/kill a product when it gets tough. Buying Karelia software is like throwing away money.

    Sun situation

    I'm sorry you feel that way. We're very sorry that Sun chose not to release their version of Watson - I personally spent a year of my life building it, only to see it crushed - but unfortunately we were contractually forbidden to continue working on Watson ourselves. Sun bought it, and they owned it. In any case, we have been improving Sandvox and offering free upgrades since it was first released in May 2006, over two and a half years ago, and we have many, many satisfied customers. Yes, a few people like you were disappointed about what happened with Sun, but nobody was more disappointed than I.
