I understand that this is a non-final version and will probably contain bugs, but I would still like to download RapidWeaver 8.1 Final Candidate 4 (Build ** 20514b** )


looks promising … there are no bug responses

No problems noticed so far.

I can not delete a document from the file sharing page. Just crashes. I have forwarded a couple of reports so far. Thanks

New bug:

Open the contents of any theme and open the styles.css file or whatever.

Paste in some basic CSS code like this and save the changes:

body {
    background: red !important;

RapidWeaver preview reloads / refreshes. You see the preview briefly flicker. But the simple modification is not shown. Quit and restart RapidWeaver, switch into preview mode. Red background now showing correctly!

Expected result: It should be possible to edit a theme and see the changes instantly in RapidWeaver preview, without having to restart every time.

Current situation: Edits made to themes only show after quitting and restarting RapidWeaver.

bug found: whenever I hit “publish”, this window pops up and the publishing is aborted. When I confirm the message and publish again, it works. Same experience in various projects.

I see this too.
