MarsEdit 2.0 is out!

MarsEdit Software Update

I’ve been involved for many months in the MarsEdit beta list, even before Ranchero (Brent Simmons) sold it to Red Sweater Software (Daniel Jalkut). Today, after months of long work, Daniel has finally released MarsEdit 2.0.

Besides an exhaustive UI overhaul, MarsEdit now supports Flickr account access through its new Media Manager, support for the WordPress ATOM XML-RPC protocol for adding categories and custom code macros among other things.

Brent’s written up the release, as well as TUAW. For $30, it’s a pretty solid deal for a great piece of software.

  1. Don’t you think $30 is a little steep? I bought VMWare for like $47. All of the Mac blog tools (Ecto included) have a long way to get to the ease of use and extensibility of Windows Live Writer…

  2. $30 might be a bit much, but if you’re a regular blogger, you quickly get your money’s worth out of it. It also seems worth supporting an independent software developer make a living in order that he might keep working on improving the app.

    I do agree that there is still much to be improved upon with existing blogging tools (MarsEdit and Ecto included) for the Mac, but MarsEdit 2.0 is a rather steep improvement even over MarsEdit 1.2.
