Oxford, United Kingdom – Softpress today announced the version 5.6.5 release of its award-winning web-design applications Freeway Express and Freeway Pro. This Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) compatibility update, free for existing users, contains several recommended improvements and enhancements.
“This update is small but very significant,” said Joe Billings, Managing Director. “It contains some important improvements that all Freeway users will benefit from.” On the subject of Mountain Lion he said “Freeway has been running fine on Mountain Lion with the exception of one small cosmetic issue. Now it’s resolved we’re happy to declare it compatible with Mountain Lion.”
