MarsEdit 3 Released Featuring Rich Text Editing, Enhanced Media Browser

Somerville, MA. May 4, 2010 (Permalink)

Red Sweater Software is excited to announce the immediate availability of MarsEdit 3, a major upgrade to the award-winning blog editor for Mac OS X.

MarsEdit 3 brings a long-awaited rich text editing mode for easy formatting of blog content without knowledge of HTML code. For users who prefer to edit HTML directly, an updated syntax highlighter makes it easier than ever to spot markup errors.

Enhancements to the media manager bring streamlined integration with iPhoto, Aperture, and Lightroom. Users can browse their libraries for photos, resize them, and insert them directly into blog entries. The scheduled uploads feature allows media assets to be used in posts without uploading them immediately, for complete offline editing capability.

For WordPress blogs, MarsEdit 3 features support for Pages and Custom Fields. These can be configured so that custom text fields appear in the post editor alongside standard fields such as Title and Tags.

"We've been working on some of these features for years, so it feels great to finally have something awesome to show customers," said Daniel Jalkut, founder of Red Sweater Software. "We tried to focus on a mix of features that increase the appeal for less technical users, while strengthening the core functionality that our long-time customers rely upon."

MarsEdit supports a wide range of the most popular blog-hosting services, with custom-tuned support for WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr, Squarespace, Movable Type, and TypePad. Dozens of other systems also work with MarsEdit through its support of the standard MetaWeblog and AtomPub publishing interfaces.
