MarsEdit 4.4.2

Red Sweater Software released MarsEdit 4.4 with improved performance for blog refreshing, now showing posts as they load when possible. The release adds the platform as an officially supported publishing system, enabling you to edit Page and Post type entries, send Draft status posts to the server, and download the entire history of posts. The blog editor also restores the capability to type to select items in the Media Manager’s icon view, returns drag-and-drop capability from the Published tab of the Media Manager, and ensures the View on Web menu item is enabled whenever a published blog post is selected.

Shortly after this release, Red Sweater issued two maintenance releases to fix a bug that prevented changes like setting categories from working when editing an existing WordPress post and address a performance issue that could occur when publishing to a blog with a large number of posts (version 4.4.1), plus address a crash while adding a new blog (version 4.4.2). ($49.95 new from Red Sweater Software or the Mac App Store, 15.9 MB, release notes, macOS 10.12+)

  1. Anyone else had problems updating to version 4? Tried to upgrade from version 3 and very strange behaviour from my Mac since, no confirmation in the upgrade from RedSwetter wither. Have they been hacked?

  2. Hi Mark - I’m the developer of MarsEdit. As far as I know I haven’t been hacked. Did you try emailing me at support at I don’t know if I got any email from you. If you email me with more details I’m sure I can help you complete the upgrade.


  3. May have been a corruption issue issue then. Will download application again once I get the upgrade licence I paid for.
