BlueGriffon – “the next-generation Web editor”

BlueGriffon logoI forgot to write about the upcoming WYSIWYG web site editor BlueGriffon when I first heard about it (probably from Fredda) but I got reminded of it today. This is the announcement in Daniel Glazman’s blog (from 30 September):

In the beginning was Netscape Gold. Then Mozilla Composer. From the ashes of Netscape and the code of Mozilla Composer came Nvu. Nvu had a cousin, KompoZer. But all this tools now belong to History and are extinct or on path to extinction.

In the meantime, Mozilla brought Firefox to the masses and its rendering engine, Gecko, has the power to fuel a next-generation wysiwyg editor for the World Wide Web. This editor is BlueGriffon™. Stay tuned!

Bye bye UIQ

Mobile phone interface developer UIQ (a former Symbian office) in Ronneby, Sweden has given notice to all employees today. This is the latest development in a downward spiral that started (or just accelerated?) with the Symbian Foundation announcement earlier this year.
