    I haven't noticed any issues with any of those programs. I'm a bit wary about running software update after the last time though - messed up my whole system.

    The iWeb update is 95.3 MB for me. Isn't that rather a lot?

    Ah good, the improving image optimization in iWeb, hopefully this will decrease file sizes a bit.

    I always rush in head first when it comes to software update :D never had a bad experience in 6 years. Apart from the noisy fan debacle from 10.4.3 :rolleyes:

    I would like to see the ability for people to have pools on their site with iweb

    So did iDVD gain support for new optical drive models not found in any currently shipping Macs? :)

    iWeb change

    Hey, they added a "don't show this message again" checkbox to the .Mac bug screen at the start of iWeb. That's a 100% improvement in my book.

    Nice one, I'll be d/ling this when I get home from work! I was planning on making up some wedding albums using iPhoto in the next couple of weeks as well, so now I know it will be running in tip-top shape. ;) :)

    I hope they've also fixed some bugs-not-worth-mentioning, since iPhoto tends to crash now and then when I'm using it, particularly when I'm adding/renaming albums or moving groups of photos among albums.

    Nice. Downloading now. I hope this decreases my load times. Wondering if it will optimize all the old stuff or only new uploads.

    Wow...I just started using iWeb the other day, and I'm interested to see what sort of updates 93mb brings.

    Can someone confirm if the comments only work with a .mac account :confused:

    That's what it says so I'd assume it's the case - doesn't bother me to be honest as I use .mac anyway.

    SWEET - I'm re-uploading my iWeb site and...

    - On the first run it asks you if you want to republish ALL to optimize it. Nice.
    - It now lets you also publish pages with ONLY changes. This will save quite a bit of publishing time.
    - It does an initial upload and then lets you keep working while it finishes the upload in the background. It has an Apple Mail-like countdown indicator next to the site name.
    - It now has 18 themed templates
    - New blank templates that let you design whatever layout you want while maintaining the original theme.
    - You can now enter entire photo albums instantly (from iPhoto/iWeb Media Browser)
    - User comments, password protection, user attachments and search function on Blogs now.

    I think comments would be very server dependant, so it would be hard to Apple to implement them in a way that is guaranteed to work on all ISPs.

    different sites in their own files in iweb?

    I am trying to develop a totally different site for my work, but I can't find any way to make it a separate file. Instead it shows up as a different site listed along with my other personal sites & pages. This means that any time I change it, it taked forever to re-publish since it does so with my other pages. Does the new version fix this? How about making text actual text instead of images? My pages look nice, but take forever to load and their content is unsearchable!

    My site is done re-uploading. Load times don't seem all that much faster and the "thumbnail images" on my front pages haven't been reduced in size at all. Hmmm? I'll have to wait and test this at home - leaving work in 2 min. Anybody want to check load times on my site? URL is in my signature.

    Actually, if apple were being generous to users, and they made use of some fancy javascript/ajax nonsense, they could build blog commenting into all sites, but I really don't anticipate them donating storage space or any cpu to hosting free blog comment databases.

    However, a man can dream...

    New iWeb Page

    Here is a brief example of a new theme and new Blog features (Click on the 'blog' link for Spotlight and Comment integration)

    http://web.mac.com/c.peters06/iWeb/Site/Home.html

    Feel free to post comments in the Blog. For those of you who are curious, you can delete the comments over the internet OR within iWeb. Additionally, you can have attachments up to 5 MB within the comments (those can also be deleted within iWeb or on the internet).

    Post any questions here or my blog. Check back often, as I'll be updating the website quite frequently over the coming weeks. Thanks! :)
