*** RapidWeaver 8 launch set for Tuesday, August 14 2018 (oh, and we have a new build for you)

Hey Weavers,

We’ve been super busy fixing up pretty much all of the reported issues we’ve received from developers and beta testers over the past week.

So, here’s the new, new, new RapidWeaver 8.0 GM build for you all. You can download this build using the link below, or just check for updates. https://dl.devmate.com/com.realmacsoftware.rapidweaver8/RapidWeaver8.zip

We’re aiming to launch RapidWeaver 8 on the 14th of August, so please double check your addons work great with the new build otherwise all our inboxes will be swamped with unhappy weavers, and none of us want that.

I also wanted to say thanks again for testing and helping us with RapidWeaver 8, I really appreciate it.

Oh and as always if you find any other issues please let us know asap — dan@realmacsoftware.com

(Yes, Discourse. This is a complete sentence)


Thanks Joe, that’s almost how I feel… although there’s no party until it’s launched and the dust has settled, then we can party :beers::crazy_face:

Minor bug found… Mark All Pages & Resources as Unchanged does not work. I can mark all as changed, but not unchanged.

Nice find, added it to the bug tracker. There may be time for one more GM yet…
