May I just say… I have been using the beta versions of v5 and whilst there have been a few bugs (expected as it’s a beta) it’s been pretty stable overall. Plus, there were a few doubters about whether the upgrade was a serious upgrade and not just a few minor ‘updates’, I have found it a welcome upgrade. There are some nice features added to make designing websites easier and just under the hood of the application there are a host of ‘tweeks’ that are great and will make everything easier (not everything is as it seems).
Secondly, come on… the price. Who can complain about the Softpress service. A great forum (Yes, that’s you). and upgrading for $69. No other PROFESSIONAL software competes with that. So don’t be fooled. Just because this is ‘easy to use’ software, it doesn’t mean more difficult software is better. For example, we use a third party for hand coding back-end sites and when he saw the new site I was working on (with v5) and the simplicity of building it (aside from the overall design) even he was impressed and he is a Windows/Dreamweaver established user. Plus he had never heard of Freeway - something to work on?
Constantly impressed and looking forward…
