This has fixed the issue with SFTP and signing in with a public key. Great stuff :grinning:

@tpbradley just implemented a workaround for a long standing crash that was being caused by Apples WebKit. We thought it best to ship another update so everyone can benefit.

I know you dont support use of RW 8 with el capitan but should I up grade from 8.03 to 8.1 ( I do need to keep to el cap due to Illustrator issues at the moment ) Rw does work its a little weird around previewing but i can live with that

LOL, just stop saying it! :joy:
I am sure you will be happy to get this one behind you. This is something you have been wanting for a very long time. Congrats on the “just about ready” release.:grin:

Thank you for update, in this version, it seems that they corrected what they wrote in other topics. But there is a question, can you add an Android emulator, please?

(Paul Russam) #8

The simulator isn’t an emulator, it only previews a page at either a preset (iPhone/iPad etc) or custom size, it doesn’t spoof the userAgent.
As there are many many many android screen resolutions it would be near impossible to have a dropdown list with them all on. Use the custom setting and specify the res of the device you want to test.
