The Expression team has just announced the availability of Service Pack 1 of Expression Web 4. This service pack adds quite a few interesting features to the product:
- HTML5 and CSS3:
- HTML5 support with IntelliSense in the code editor
- Support for CSS3 draft spec properties
- PHP: IntelliSense support for the latest functions from PHP 5.3, as well as support for 130+ additional PHP modules (including many PEAR-related libraries)
- Online service (beta) that extends the capabilities of SuperPreview to include support for Chrome, IE8, IE9 Safari 4 and 5 on Windows and Mac. Because it is using the remote service the beauty of it is you don’t need to have these browsers installed locally.
- Support for content that requires authentication
- Support for Internet Explorer 9 as a local browser, and IE8 built into the tool (meaning that if you have IE9 installed locally you can use the local SuperPreview tool to check rendering in IE6, IE7, IE8 and IE9.
