MarsEdit 3 Is Here

May 4th, 2010

MarsEdit 3 is available now.

Read the MarsEdit 3 Press Release

As you can imagine, I get a lot of feedback about MarsEdit. People tend to be head over heels in love with the application, so most of it is extremely positive. Nonetheless, there are certain persistent requests that I have received over the years. It’s extremely common for people to request the following features

  • “WYSIWYG” rich text editing
  • Support for WordPress Pages and Custom Fields
  • Improved HTML syntax highlighting
  • Integration with iPhoto, Aperture, and Lightroom
  • Scheduled media attachments

MarsEdit 3 is my answer to all of those requests. Finally.

Download a copy, and enjoy.

So now that 3.0 is out of the way, I suppose I will just kick back and relax. Hah! The most exciting thing about clearing those high level feature requests off the table is it sets the stage for the next round of refinements. There’s a lot of stuff already in progress that I am excited to share with you in the coming months.

I plan for the future of all my products by consolidating user feedback and balancing it against my own personal vision for the application. I’ve got plenty of ideas for MarsEdit on the Mac, as well as on … other platforms.

MarsEdit 3 is a new foundation for developing even more enhancements on the Mac version, but it also includes a lot of “behind the scenes” structural changes that will make it easier for me to build e.g. an iPad version.

It’s going to be an exciting year.

    Buggy.
    At least when publishing to Tumblr.
    1) Formatting doesn’t stick
    2) kept asking for my login details when they are correct
    3) would not even publish now.

    It’s seems a nice WYSIWYG editor but how do you change the numbering levels?
    It can go deeper, but how do you go shallower?

    @slashj I have responded to you by email to follow up on the issues you’re running into. It sounds like if you are not able to log in that could be the core problem. We’ll follow up by email to get things ironed out.

    As for the list-depth, it could be a lot more obvious but the way to control depth is tab to go deeper, shift-tab to go shallower.

    It seems like this blog entry has lived out its use as an announcement of MarsEdit 3. The comments are turning more and more to technical support, which I’d much prefer be directed to either the forums or to our support email address:

    I’m closing comments at this point! Thanks for all the feedback above, folks!

    Daniel
