Blue Griffin ePub authoring tool
I stumbled across this product on the net and it didn't come up in a search on the forums (although I might just not be searching properly).
This is not a free tool and it looks quite expensive for a license. However, for the sake of having this information on the forum for people looking for available software on ebook authoring I thought I'd post something.
It seems (on the surface) to be a pretty comprehensive authoring tool. However, I've never used it myself and the asking price of 195 Euros + VAT is pretty steep.
That said, I know we have some professional ebook creators on the forum and if they haven't seen this before, it's probably worth at least a download of the demo to see if it brings anything new or convenient to their workflow.
EDIT: And a working link to the site might be helpful:

They cannot be selling it since it's powered by Mozilla.

You're mistaken, Wolfie. There are provisions in the Mozilla Public License to accommodate both open source and commercial/proprietary projects.
You're still, of course, bound by the MPL (with regard to providing source code for MPL-covered code), but if all you do is statically link against MPL-covered code, then all you need to do is make sure you comply with the terms for the stuff that was MPL-covered before you started.
