There’s a new version of Stacks available today. This version includes bug fixes for drag-and-drop, stability improvements (fewer crashes while dragging), and is also universal for Apple Silicon.
You can get it via auto-update from our server. We’re officially dropping RW7 support (although in practice it will still work for a while more – but I don’t recommend this at all) and suggest that you upgrade to at least macOS 10.12.
You can also find this at the usual spot on our website:

A bit more info about Apple Silicon universal builds: You can use this universal build of Stacks with RapidWeaver 8.7 whether you have an Apple Silicon Mac or not. It will run fine on Intel Macs and even in Rosetta while we wait for all the other plug-ins and RapidWeaver to update too.
To move over to running RapidWeaver and Stacks natively you’ll need to move the app itself and all of its plug-ins (just plug-ins, not themes, stacks, or snippets, … etc.). Once you have all of your plug-ins in universal form, then you can run a universal version of the app.
I think that some other folks have been patiently waiting for Stacks to release a universal version and I just want to say an extra big THANK YOU for your patience. That was quite a bit harder than we anticipated.
Now that Stacks is out there I’m hopeful that all our other plug-ins will follow along much more quickly. And other RapidWeaver plug-in developers will follow suit too. Since beta versions of universal RapidWeaver have been available for months, I’m sure they’re chomping at the bit to release something too. So, all you M1 Mac aficionados, your wait is almost over.
