Cross Culture Limited has released an update for Mergemill, bringing it to version 2.5. Mergemill is a Web development tool designed for the creation of Web pages. The update features graphic file batch-processing. According to Cross Culture Limited:
Cross Culture Limited today announced the immediate release of Mergemill 2.5, which is a tool for Web publishing, database publishing, Web graphics processing and data formatting.
The software merges iformati files (or templates) with content source files to generate the desired output. It enables users to quickly and easily generate many Web pages from a database, or reformat database data into readable form for publishing. Users may also use it to process electronic forms.
Version 2.5 adds the ability to batch-process graphics files in different formats for the Web. This new Web graphics processing feature enables users to convert picture files to the common Web/wap formats (GIF, JPEG or WBMP), reduce color depth (such as changing 32-bit pictures with essentially grayscale colors to 8-bit), and create thumbnail images for index pages.
You can find more information about the Mergemill update at the Cross Culture Limited Web site. Mergemill 2.5 is free for registered users, while the full version is available for US$59.00.
