Melbourne, Australia – It’s with enormous pleasure that The Escapers release the very long-awaited Flux V. Flux V follows on from the most successful version of Flux yet, Flux 4. Flux V has been in development for nearly 2 years, and faced many challenges along that path. During that development period The Escapers moved from London, UK to sunny Melbourne, Australia and while we tried to minimise the impact on development, delays were inevitable.
However, the time has come now to release Flux V to not only our loyal users but also to newcomers to Flux too.
Flux V comes with a totally redesigned user interface. It’s more tuned for use as a full-screen application, more compact for ever more popular, smaller laptop screens. We’ve changed the appearance to fit perfectly with Mavericks and we’re tuning for Yosemite right now.
But appearance is only one of many areas we’ve changed. Flux V has seen many technical, under the hood changes too:
Flux V is now fully 64-bit, fully ARC-compliant and multi-threaded. This means Flux is faster, more stable, and will make better use of the multiple cores in your modern Mac.
Flux V has re-worked the core feature set. FreeCode is the only way Flux works now, this means non-standard HTML is fully editable. It means that Flux can work with everything from a modern site using HTML5 and CSS3 to legacy sites built on older technologies.
Flux V has a brand new Master Elements system. The new Master Elements system works in both CSS and HTML files, and lets you use elements of one page in another page and when the original page is changed, Flux can apply those changes to the rest of the pages that use those elements. Flux V has changed how all this works, we now use HTML comments to isolate the elements, so Master Elements now work with any server-side scripting language you use, any non-standard CSS or XHTML you use. Simply, Flux V gets out of your way and lets you work your way.
Flux V has Crowd Sourced Code. A brand new idea at The Escapers to let users submit their own code to other Flux V users, this let’s us The Escapers more easily distribute code snippets and ideas, but also users in the Flux community help one another with their sites.
Flux V has changed how your site synchronizes from your Mac to your server, it’s multi-threaded, fast, and based on solid UNIX underpinnings.
