MarsEdit 2.1

Search Your Drafts and Entries
Now you can quickly filter your posts and drafts by keywords. Just type a word or phrase into the toolbar search field, and MarsEdit will restrict the post listing to only items that contain the text you've typed.

Native Tags Support
For supported systems, including Movable Type and WordPress, MarsEdit now offers a field for capsule-style tagging of your posts. It even remembers the tags you've typed before, so you'll be able to reuse them in a jiffy on future posts.

Improved Web Preview
MarsEdit's built-in preview sports a sleek new default appearance, massively enhanced performance, and fine-tuned usability. Now previews update quickly and without flickering or jumping around as you edit your post.

Save Drafts To Server
A new Post Status popup in the options pane lets you choose between Published and Draft status. Server support for this feature is somewhat hit-or-miss, so be sure to test with something not too embarrassing!

Beautifully Refined User Interface

MarsEdit 2.0 extends the simple elegance of MarsEdit 1.2, incorporating new features while continuing to simplify the user interface. Much more than just a pretty face, MarsEdit's beauty and simplicity help you be a more productive weblog author.

Seamless Flickr Integration

The streamlined Media Manager now sports a dedicated tab just for Flickr! Browse your most recent photos, or your entire collection. You can even search by tag or photo title. When you find the perfect picture, insert it into your post with the click of a button.

Powerful Markup Macros

Nobody likes to type HTML code, which is why MarsEdit's markup macros are so invaluable. With the ability to transform text from the editor or the pasteboard, you'll find it a breeze to customize macros for the most tedious of your HTML tasks.

Streamlined Post Editor

The post editor was completely rethought for MarsEdit 2.0, giving you the power to show or hide fields in the window so that only the useful elements are visible. On supported weblogs, you can even add new categories, or edit the slug (short URL name) of your posts, without ever leaving MarsEdit.

New Printing Support

MarsEdit makes writing on the web a real joy, but sometimes it takes marking up a paper copy of your masterpiece to make sure you've gotten all the kinks out. With MarsEdit 2.0 you can print both the raw text of your post or the HTML preview, making it a snap to take your work-in-progress offline for yourself or others to review.

And More...

A huge number of "tiny tweaks" have been made to MarsEdit, moving it ever closer to perfection. Take a look around and see how well it suits you!
