SoftPress has released version 3.1 of Freeway, it's Web design and page layout tool. Freeway 3.1 includes new features and performance improvements, as well as maintenance enhancements, according to SoftPress. Freeway takes an approach to Web page layout similar to desktop publishing tools and is targeted to designers. It includes support for multiple master pages; typographical features (such as converting typefaces to GIFs, while maintaining their editability); cascading style sheets; built-in graphics optimization; rollover editing; and JavaScripting.

New features in version 3.1 include:

  • Ability to modify links and backgrounds in Flash files within Freeway's Flash
    Extras interface;
  • JavaScript handling for Actions has been substantially extended, with
    57 new additions to the JavaScript API;
  • Freeway's text processing has been optimized to make editing of
    large documents faster;
  • Arabic font encoding support has been included.

SoftPress is offering a special pricing promotion for a limited time, as well as discount pricing for educational customers and those taking advantage of their crossgrade offer. The 3.1 upgrade is free to 3.0 users. The full, boxed version costs $249 regularly. A demo version is available on their site. For more information, visit http://www.softpress.com.
