.NET Edition of SPAW Editor v.2 Released

October 1st, 2007 by ailon

kick it on DotNetKicks.com We are happy to announce the beta release of SPAW Editor v.2 .NET Edition!

This version is a functional equivalent of PHP Edition v.2.0.5 plus it adds design-time support for Visual Studio 2005 (including Web Developer Express).


SPAW Editor .NET Edition v.2.0.5 beta is available for immediate download through our download page.

Main features of SPAW Editor v.2 .NET Edition are:

- completely redesigned and rewritten modular architecture
- tabbed multi-document interface
- floating/shared toolbars
- resizable editing area
- context menu
- file manager plugin
- support for Firefox/Mozilla/Netscape, Opera 9 and Safari 3 browsers
- XHTML rendering
- design time support for Visual Studio 2005
- and many more

This release is marked beta because it hasn’t been tested by wide user base and there are still some things to do in secondary areas but where it matters it is pretty much complete.

Known issues:

- Documentation is incomplete;
- Pages can only be added through code;
- Defaults shown in VS2005 designer are hard-coded and wont match modified spaw2.config settings;
- Modifying of File Manage directories at run-time will be streamlined before the final release;
- Some configuration properties can only be set through config file or accessing Editor.Configuration object directly;
- Plugins and themes not ported, yet.

System requirements:

- ASP .NET version 2.0 or higher;
- Visual Studio 2005/Visual Web Developer 2005 Express edition for design-time support.

We have also created a dedicated forum for .NET Edition v.2
