Sandvox Karelia Software’s website building software Sandvox has been embracing the Mac only since its initial release, and now it has expended to embrace the Retina display. With a simple check of a box, web developers can present high-resolution images to website visitors using Retina display Macs. Standard resolution photos will appear when viewed by other devices.

Sandvox v2.8 also comes with two new templates, new LinkedIn and Pinterest sharing buttons, a new social media sharing bar and much more.

Two new design options, Hydrogen and Kryptonite, are now included in version 2.8. Both Hydrogen and Kryptonite are clean, flexible, modern designs that offer left or right sidebars and work exceptionally well for showcasing photographs and galleries.

In addition, version 2.8 introduces new social media features including new sharing buttons for both LinkedIn and Pinterest, new customization options for Twitter and Facebook, and a brand new Sharing Bar that presents all of Sandvox’s supported social media buttons in a neat, convenient row. To accomodate all of these improvements, the Objects menu now features a new Sharing section.

Additional Sandvox 2.8 features include:

  • an updated Metrics inspector
  • improvements to the Amazon and Google Maps objects, publishing, and podcast RSS feeds
  • added support for the latest jQuery, v1.9.1

Sandvox is a template-based web development program that requires no HTML, CSS or design experience. Simply choose from one of the included designs, then drag-and-drop your content to create blogs, galleries and slideshows, Google Maps, YouTube videos, and more. When ready, upload your site to your favorite webhost directly from within Sandvox.
