Send Article to a Friend

Karelia has released Sandvox 2.8 with two new designs, named Hydrogen and Kryptonite, that are usable with either left or right sidebars and are geared for showcasing image galleries. Additionally, all designs in the Web site authoring tool have been updated with an improved full-width description that enables image objects to be resized wider manually. The update also adds controls for optimizing images for Retina displays in addition to automatically optimizing images for the higher resolution screens. Other additions include a new Sharing Bar object that consolidates all of Sandvox’s supported social media buttons, new sharing buttons for both LinkedIn and Pinterest, an improved Twitter button with hashtag and follow options, and automatic language localization for Google Maps. Sandvox 2.8 also improves responsiveness when saving large documents, ensures podcast RSS feeds include iTunes-compatible images, and adds support for the jQuery 1.9.1 JavaScript library. ($79.99 new, free update from Karelia or the Mac App Store, 37.8 MB, release notes)
