Pablo Software Solutions has released WYSIWYG Web Builder 10, a major new version of its DTP-style web building tool for Windows users.
Version 10 adds support for responsive web design, allowing users to create different variants of pages optimised for a wide number of devices. Part of this includes integrated support for designing mobile-friendly web pages.
The new responsive web design feature, which ensures web pages are readable across different devices and platforms, uses CSS3 media queries to achieve its aim. It also comes with a brand new integrated environment for creating flexible mobile-friendly pages, offering a dedicated toolset for mobile web pages.
The new build also adds support for CSS3 Animations, with an animation timeline, support for multiple animations per object and a library offering 40 new pre-defined animations.
Users also gain built-in support for many jQuery Mobile widgets, such as Collapsible, List View, Navigation, Panels, Forms and Themes.
A new Navigation Panel menu has also been implemented, allowing users to create panels that slide in from the left or right of the page, with support for gradients and images. Also added in are Facetime, SMS, Phone and Skype links.
Other new objects added to WYSIWYG Web Builder 10 include support for wrapping text neatly around other objects, new page header and footer objects and a Notes feature, allowing users to add comments to the page that don’t appear in the final version.
The new build – which comes with more than 100 new features in total, all documented here – also adds new Smart Guides, a Backup Manager, Format Painter and the ability to set user-defined variables.
WYWIWYG Web Builder 10 is available now as a 30-day trial download for PCs running Windows XP or later. The full version can be purchased for $49.95 – existing version 9 users can get a 50 per cent discount on upgrading (expires November 1), while anyone who purchased version 9 after July 21 are entitled to a free upgrade.
