KompoZer, Mozilla-based web authoring app

KompoZer logoAfter the release of Nvu 1.0, an open source Mozilla-based web authoring application developed by Daniel Glazman’s Disruptive Innovations and Linspire, a couple of years ago, its development got to a full stop.

As bugs remain, Fabien Cazenave decided to take Nvu’s code and continue its development opting for a new name KompoZer, as the original Nvu is trademarked by Linspire.

KompoZer

At first sight it latest release, 0.7.10, looks pretty much like Nvu save the logo, the addition of undo/redo buttons and a slightly different toolbar layout. However a number of behind the scenes bugs has been fixed that should please web developers as they aim to solve some CSS related issues that remained on Nvu.

CSS bugs squeezing, a more complete site manager and better HTML code output are the milestones for future 0.8 and 0.9 releases with no estimated release dates.

I use Nvu now and then and while it is a very capable web page editor, the bugs are definitely there (jumping table handlers anyone?), so I am very pleased to see it alive, releasing and with a pretty new icon.

Try KompoZer.
