Today, we are honored to introduce Sitemason 6 to the world. It's been a long 15 months since we announced our rededication to the core Sitemason product last year. It's been an extremely exciting and rewarding journey, and we are elated to share the fruits of our labor with you. Read on to learn about our adventure.
Yesterday we invited a select few Sitemason users to an early beta program to test Sitemason 6. It's an understatement to suggest we're excited about this phase. We've poured a lot of ourselves into this reinvention in the past 15 months and we hope it shows.
If you are interested in joining the beta program, please email email@example.com. Look for a general beta release announcement for all existing Sitemason users in the coming weeks.
Continuing our interface teaser, today we wanted to show off how Actions will work in the new interface. Sitemason defines Actions as any change that modifies the list. Here's a brief video showing off Adding a Page, Reordering the list, editing a Page, Duplicating a Page, and finally deleting that duplicate. Enjoy!
It'd be all buzzz! Bad jokes aside, that's where we begin today's post, tackling some web buzzwords. Specifically, Progressive Enhancement and Responsive Design. We'll look at the meaning of these concepts and how we're employing them in the new interface.
Although only a shadow of its future self, today we wanted to tease the new interface and show off our progress of SM6 up to this point. There's still a long way to go, but our baby is taking shape. I mean, dang, just look at that responsiveness!
For those of you keeping up with the Responsive Web Design movement and/or the progress on our new interface, we're extremely excited to show off our new font icons. As part of the interface redesign, Kevin Kennedy went back to the bottomless well that is his creative mind to invent Sitemason's own font icon set.
If you're saying, "Wait a minute, did you say Font Icons? You must be confused." I'm so glad you pointed out my penchant for confusion, but in this case, I'm not crazy. Read on for an explanation, or checkout the full Font Icon Set if your idea of a good time is perusing Webdings. Now who's crazy!…
