🤓 RapidWeaver 8 Private Beta 2 (Build 19551b)

Hey,

Lots of great new things in this build. Check the release notes (and screenshots) for hints as to what’s new:

  • Added a new “Web Icons” area under “Settings” in the source list, and yes we offer to auto generate where possible :slight_smile:
  • Lots more improvements to the Media Browser, and still more to come, this is one beast of a feature…
  • You can now save and load your own Simulate window layouts, this is totally rad!
  • Pressing the “simulate” toolbar button will now hide/show the simulate window(s)
  • Fixed “Simulate” menu names, and added keyboard shortcuts for showing simulate windows and opening a new one
  • Fixed some major issues with window placement and size restoration.
  • Fixed a ton of dem orrible bugz, like da good peoples we is!

Very cool stuff!!!

Food for thought… I know that you shelved the new Basic page plugin until more kinks could be worked out, maybe for 8.1. But I think that having this in 8.0 release will give the release A LOT more fanfare. From my testing it was basic but seemed to work. What if you were to have it in the 8.0 build with a BETA tag on it. I think that users will understand that its something big and needs a lot more real world testing.

I personally won’t be using that page much since I am obviously a heavy Stacks user. This is true of most heavy RapidWeaver users. However, just having this in the release build really make it look like Realmac put a shit ton into this release. I am not trying to belittle what has been done. I think its amazing. However, having a new page type would really be the cherry on top and silence any sort of negative feedback that any user could say about this release.

I concur on this. I think the Basic Page would be a really good benefit for 8.0.
