Microsoft Expression Web 4 Service Pack 1 (SP1) contains significant fixes and improvements in publishing, in the SuperPreview feature, in file management, extensibility, and in other areas of the program. Visit this site for more information/download
Issues that are resolved in this service pack:
Improvements that are provided by this service pack:
Expression Web 4 SP1 provides support for all HTML5 tags (for pages authored using the HTML 5 doctype) via IntelliSense within the code editor, and as block or inline entities in the Design view. There is no preview for <canvas> or <svg> elements, and no specific IntelliSense for SVG entities.
CSS3 Expression Web provides support for the draft CSS 3 specification. To enable CSS 3 error checking, you must choose CSS 3 draft from the Schemaversion drop-down under the Authoring tab in the Page Editor Options dialog. The IntelliSense and error-checking in the code editor is fairly complete, and supports checking multiple comma-separated property values (e.g. multiple backgrounds). This support extends to the CSSProperties pane, as well. SP1 also provides support for selected CSS 3 properties in the New Style and Modify Style dialog boxes, including "border-radius" and "box-shadow." Note: There is no support in the Design view for previewing CSS 3 properties. SuperPreview Access to Pages Protected by Authentication Forms SuperPreview now supports cookie-based logon authentication. You can click on the "Page Interaction Mode" icon, browse to the page of interest, enter your login credentials, and view the rendered page. Because of the wide variety of different authentication methods used on the Internet, some sites may not be compatible with this feature. PHP IntelliSense IntelliSense now includes an expanded number of function groups that improve PHP coverage and utility. Internet Explorer 8 and Internet Explorer 9 Beta Internet Explorer 9 beta is now supported as a local browser for both SuperPreview and the Expression Web Snapshot feature. Internet Explorer 8 is now built into SuperPreview. If you have Internet Explorer 9 beta installed, you can view page renderings in Internet Explorer 6, 7, 8, and 9 beta.
