It’s with a heavy heart that I write the above headline. Softpress is, as of yesterday, no more. That means no more Freeway development; no Freeway 8. Sadly, this also means that my Actions won’t be developed much further. I certainly won’t be looking to add new features to exisitng Actions, or releasing any new ones (I had a few in the pipeline, but that’s where they’ll be staying now).
So I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone who has supported my Action efforts over the years - whether you’ve bought one, downloaded one and told me how useful it was, or just said “thanks” when we’ve met at one of the trade fairs that Softpress used to attend. It was all encouragement and I’ve enjoyed enabling Freeway users to create tings that they probably didn’t know was possible. It’s a testament to Softpress that we’ve been able to make Actions that extend Freeway in wild and various directions.
I’ll be keeping this site here - certainly as refreence for folks who need it, but I’ll be taking the sale sbuttons down. Freeway will keep running on anything upto and including OSX El Capitain. However, Seierra is an unknown quanity, and if you wish to keep using Freeway, be very sure that it works before updasting your Mac! Infact, I’d go as far to say that you would be wise to create a second HD/partition/Virtual Machine which will run Freeway. If, like me, you have loads of sites you need to maintain, then this would be a must -especially if other misson critical software needs to maintain pace with Apple’s OS updates.
Last, but by no way least, I’d like to wish those folk at Softpress past and present who gave us one of the best web design apps ever the very best for the future. I hope that whatever new projects come thier way are as exciting, rewarding, and as chellenging as Freeway was.
