Three months after the original version, Fog Creek Software shipped a new version of CityDesk today, a free service pack release that fixes about 100 bugs and adds some spiffy new features that people were clamoring for. The biggest complaint about CityDesk was that it generated weird URL names (which actually surprised me, because most other content management systems do the same). So we fixed that. We added a few easy features that I think will go a long way. And we fixed all known bugs -- many of which we found out about because CityDesk catches most crashes and transmits crucial crash info to us.
