For direct purchase apps I am offering upgrade pricing, but it has to be purchased as a license through the Red Sweater Store, using your MarsEdit 3 license to unlock the discount:

The perpetual hanging problem you’re seeing is a bug in MarsEdit when you try to validate an app that is not qualified because its not from the App Store. I am planning to fix that, at least, in the next update to MarsEdit for the Mac App Store.

I have a version of Mars Edit 3 that I purchased through the web. Does this mean I can download Mars Edit 4 from Apple’s App Store and still get the upgrade pricing?

The main reason why I ask is I’m trying to do just that, but the screen to do it has been trying to contact the Mac App Store for a good ten minutes now.

I don’t see compelling reasons in the description of the new version so I’d like to hear more about the improvements in MarsEdit 4 and look forward to the blog posts about these.

@Jeffrey – thanks as well for the kind words. As for the local drafts, the Dropbox trick probably just threw off MarsEdit’s efforts to “migrate” the old MarsEdit 3 content. You should be able to manually copy them over into the new MarsEdit4 data folder. Hold the option key while selecting Help -> Open MarsEdit Data Folder from MarsEdit 4, then quit MarsEdit before adding any content to the folder, and relaunch.

The Dropbox trick will probably continue to work in MarsEdit 4 if you set it up again. I hesitate to endorse this because MarsEdit doesn’t do anything special to ensure this will work well. I hope to support a full-fledged draft syncing solution at some point.

I am delighted to have the opportunity to send you money for something that I’ve been relying on for years.

I do have a question about my Local Drafts. With MarsEdit 3, I had been synching them via Dropbox between my Macs. Even if I can no longer sync them, is there a way in which I can import them to MarsEdit 4 (which does not appear to have found them).

And I can’t thank you enough for supporting WordPress featured images. Game changer for me.
