Blogging application Mars Edit has been updated to version 1.2. The update is free for registered users.

Developed by Red Sweater Software, MarsEdit 1.2 adds support for Growl notifications, image uploading to the Picasa web service, and support for Vox weblogs.

"Since taking over development of MarsEdit three months ago, users have provided a lot of great feedback," said Daniel Jalkut, founder of Red Sweater Software. "They've told me exactly what they want, and this release is a major step toward providing that."

The application is already known for offering users an email-like interface to help them publish their blogs to multiple blog publishing systems.
