Zarra Studios has introduced a beta release of its iWeb Buddy software.

iWeb Buddy improves the features of Apple’s iWeb 08, adding new tools such as the facility to redirect RSS feeds through an iWeb site and new buttons which let site visitors bookmark sites through social networks and more.

The software also enables more detailed website statistics, using Google Analytics or Mint, and makes it easy for iWeb users to publish and host multiple different domains on their .Mac server space

The latest beta improves stability, adds direct .Mac access, haloscan comment injection and many other features.

iWeb Buddy is a Leopard- only application that requires iLife 08 and a .Mac account. Limited spaces on the beta programme are still available, Zarra Studios says.
