MarsEdit 4 in Public Beta

I’ve used MarsEdit 3 over recent years to post to various blogs and it’s a great, if perhaps a little dated UI wise by todays styles and standards.

That said it works well and is reliable. It’s way better than using the WordPress admin interface in the browser.

It’s been over 7 years since MarsEdit 3 was released. Typically I would like to maintain a schedule of releasing major upgrades every two to three years. This time, a variety of unexpected challenges led to a longer and longer delay.

The good news? MarsEdit 4 is finally shaping up. I plan to release the update later this year.

Great news. You can read more over on the Red Sweater blog. Any new purchases of MarsEdit 3 licenses (not through the Mac App Store) will get upgraded to version 4 for free.

Despite not being updated in awhile it has stood the test of time and in February this year The Sweet Setup named it The best blogging app on Mac for WordPress.

I have the beta installed I’m using MarsEdit and Ulysses to post here since switching this blog back to WordPress.
