I was pleased to see that the Marsedit was updated and one of the things is that it will now let me work on Pages in the blog and not just the blog posts. Thats a big plus for a start. And the logo has a fancy new rocket in there…

There is a new Rich Text editor. The rich editor offers an alternative to MarsEdit’s beloved HTML text editor. While you are writing your blog posts you can style text, arrange images, create lists and more without using HTML code. For me though I actually like working in the HTML because I can add things to the html making it better for the search engines. You can still use html though and that has also been improved.

The updated HTML Editor with Advanced Syntax Highlighting. For those who prefer straight HTML we’ve added beautiful new syntax highlighting with different colours for attributes, keywords and tag structure, to make it easy to spot syntax errors at a glance.

Support for Custom Fields
For WordPress and other blogs that implement the WordPress API, you can configure custom fields in MarsEdit to customise the post editing interface.

iPhoto, Aperture and Lightroom Integration
Browse your media collections to find the perfect photo for your post. When you attach an image, MarsEdit lets you specify the size, name, and alternative text in one easy step.

Scheduled Media Attachments
With scheduled media attachments you can compose your posts with rich media even when completely offline. When you are ready to publish, the images or other media files are uploaded to your blog and inserted into the post.

Not a huge difference in some ways and that could be a good thing so that we are not left wondering what we should be doing with huge differences, but the things that are added have for me made quite a change. I like how I can set the size of an image and also that I can get the images from iPhoto. I think there are more improvement that could be made with how it handles pictures what I like what I see so far.
