macOS Apps/Updates

River SRL has announced Sparkle 2.6.1, an update to their visual web design application for macOS. 

It allows you to create GDPR-complaint websites in a fully visual way, with no need for knowledge of HTML or technical jargon. In addition to privacy enhancements, version 2.6.1 brings enhanced site generation, contributing to higher performance metrics.
