“Apple’s newest iLife component is set to receive a major upgrade when the second version rolls out next year, Think Secret sources report. Beyond the refinements that typically arrive in the year following an application’s inaugural release, iWeb 2.0 will pack a number of content enhancements that will keep the software current with trends on the Web,” Ryan Katz reports for Think Secret.
“Live content and integration with other Web site features are two major focuses of iWeb 2.0, sources report, freeing users from the effective yet static tether of iWeb 1.0,” Katz reports. “Like iTunes and iPhoto before it, iWeb 2.0 will see the addition of Smart Albums, making it easy for users to build galleries of photos based only on a few criteria. Giving visitors the ability to control the presentation of photo galleries, such as sorting photos by date, is another feature on the drawing board.”
Katz reports, “Apple is also said to be working on a live webcam module for iWeb 2.0 that would send snapshots at specified intervals to the server, a natural feature for a company that sells many of its systems today with built-in webcams.”
