Xway b5 is here!

Xway b5 is here!

We have just released Xway b5, the latest version of our next-generation program for visual web design.

You can download it from our website.


Xway includes a detailed reference manual, which you can access by choosing Xway User Guide from Xway’s Help menu. This also includes an appendix with a list of new features and cross-references to documentation in the user guide — this is a good place to start if you’re upgrading from a previous beta version. If you’re new to Xway, a good place to start is the introduction to the user guide, and the Xway tutorial (see below).

There is also a step-by-step tutorial and two sample documents (created from the tutorial). These are available from our website: click on Xway Resources in the Help menu. We revised the tutorial and sample documents for b5.

New features

  • Master pages

Bug fixes, including:

  • Fixed an issue that prevented dynamic background properties from being changed when the new property is the same as the default CSS property but different from a non-dynamic property
  • Dynamic background image settings aren’t discarded when a dynamic background image hasn’t been set

Brilliant! Well done guys (and gals?) The biggest pain is having to upload pages via FTP. I’m hoping there will be an upload button coming soon, hotly followed by hamburger menus.

Hi Geoff,

They’re both high on our list!

We’re actually working on hamburger menus currently, and I’m hoping we will start working on upload soon.
