Alameda, California – Karelia Software announced today the immediate availability of Sandvox(R) 1.6.7, an important update to its Apple Design Award-recognized website creation application for Mac OS X. This update, free to all registered users, fixes issues with non-English websites and domains, includes a new Writing Direction menu for right-to-left alphabets, and adds improvements to RSS feeds, video pages, and Flickr feeds.
“While we’re sure that every Sandvox user will want to update to this new version, we’re especially happy to welcome more International users to Sandvox now that it has better support for non-Latin alphabets,” said Dan Wood of Karelia Software. “More and more people around the world are using Macs, and we want to make sure that Sandvox is as flexible with languages as it is with website creation.”
A Universal Binary for PowerPC and Intel architectures, Sandvox 1.6.7 requires Mac OS X “Tiger” version 10.4.11, or “Leopard” version 10.5, or “Snow Leopard” version 10.6, and is available in English, French, Danish, German, Brazilian Portuguese, and both Simplified and Traditional Chinese. A single-user license to Sandvox costs $57 (USD); a single-user license for the Pro edition (enabling raw HTML editing plus additional Google integration) costs $97 (USD). Household licenses and site licenses are also available.

Karelia Software is the California-based company that originally brought you Watson, the ground-breaking Macintosh Web utility, winner of the MacWorld “Eddy” and the Apple Design Award for “Most Innovative Application.” Karelia is headed by Dan Wood and Terrence Talbot. We joined forces to create Sandvox when we realized that even for the technically inclined, it was just too painful to get words and pictures on the Web.
