Karelia Software has released an update to its easy-to-use website design application, Sandvox 1.0.3.

The update offers a number of bug fixes and some minor improvements, including the capcity to include remote URLs in websites for QuickTime content, faster thumbnail generation and improved uploading using Secure FTP. It also adds support for Japanese, Danish, and Traditional Chinese.

The software runs as a Universal binary, so it runs natively on both Intel and PowerPC Macs.

Sandvox features drag-and-drop website assembly, live editing without a preview mode, two dozen designs, and over a dozen Pagelets, small areas of content that reside within a web page's sidebar.

Equipped with strong iLife integration, Sandvox also offers a setup assistant to help upload sites, using FTP, SFTP, and WebDAV, and also including .Mac.

The Pro version allows for the creation of raw HTML content as pages or pagelets allowing advanced users to integrate additional elements and support server-side scripting.

The regular version of the application costs $49, while the Pro version costs $79.
