Web Publishing Database Management Suite Updated

Cross Culture Limited has released an update for Mergemill, bringing the Web publishing database management suite to version 3.8.1. The update is a minor point update that adds some features and addresses other issues. From Cross Culture Limited:

The update adds the option of breaking a list or page when value of its key field changes, to complement breaking loops on specified number of iterations. It also automatically creates all non-existent subfolders in paths to the output files. There is now no need to add those folders in advance. Many smaller changes have been made as well to improve the overall user experience.

Mergemill is versatile Web site development and database tools in one package. It serves well in multiple parts of the web publishing workflow, especially when users need to web publish text-based contents. It may be used to quickly create thousands of static web pages from simple text files, spreadsheets or databases, to be published on the web or CD-ROM. Users can easily set up FTP accounts, and instruct Mergemill to automatically upload generated web pages to specified server directories. Source contents may come from any text editor, FileMaker Pro, Microsoft Access, 4th Dimension, Microsoft Excel, AppleWorks, or any database that can export data in XML, Merge or tab-separated text format.

Free web templates provided with Mergemill enable anyone to easily become a web publisher. Mergemillis rich set of 42 tags for content and date insertion as well as branching and looping control also enable professional Web site builders or web developers to easily create static web databases.

The update is free to registered users of Mergemill. The full version is priced at US$99. Mergemill works on a variety of Windows platforms, and supports Mac OS 9.2 and above, and Mac OS X 10.2 and above.
