Yes, you read correctly Revoke, and the official timing for everything depends on how the withdrawal proceeds. The earliest that EURid - the registry for .EU domains - will revoke existing .EU domains from UK residents is March 30, 2019. This date can change, as Brexit negotiations are currently ongoing.
As of yet, there is no mention of compensation for recently renewed domain names.
What are your options?
If you have a valid address in the European Union that is not in the UK - you can update your domain registrant contact to keep the domain valid.
Please note that you must use a valid registrant contact address according to current ICANN guidelines.
If changing the address is not a valid option for you - you will need to find another domain name that is not .EU.
There are many options available, including .UK and .CO.UK domains.
First off, for those that don’t trust new products, RW7 & RW8 can run side by side. Both apps can share the same addons folder and you can switch back and forth between the two apps without any problems. NOTE: RW8 projects are not backwards compatible, however, you can drag complete [Stacks] pages from RW8 projects into an RW7 project!
Realmac published a long list of things that have changed in the new product. The list does not mention any speed improvements, but simple projects seem to render a preview faster and Dave Hidding has confirmed that the performance of a site generated with RW8 is better than the exact same site generated with RW7.
Check out the new feature videos here.
Two features immediately impressed me:
• Addons can now be enabled/disabled from the preferences panel.
• The new Device Simulator (Apple only) now shows simulations of a wide range of Mac and IOS products. IOS previews can be rotated between landscape and portrait.
What didn’t impress me:
Unsplash Integration offers a range of unpractical sizes (Unsplash has an API that would allow specific sizes to be defined) and, of course, if the images are actually used, they are a) randomly renamed and b) not optimised for the web.
When I booted RW8 this morning, I was greeted by an update window that displayed a long list of ‘First Day Fixes’. All the fixes listed were relatively minor issues.
Conclusion: Even the RW8 beta release was way better than the initial official release of RW7.
I've just been able to take a look at at the pre-release version of what Marten will be delivering and I'm flabbergasted!
'Duck Soup' isn't simply a single project page, it is a whole set of projects with over 150 different amazing modules that you can paste into your own projects to achieve instant design perfection. The modules are built exclusively with BWD stacks and should work with virtually any theme.
I hear that Duck Soup will be released very soon (perhaps even before Thanksgiving) and I personally can't wait!
Over the years Henk supplied many eye-catching themes, gave us useful code snippets and addons. Joost specialised in the production of useful stacks.
With their parting, we lose two innovative contributors to the RW community. But have no fear — their names may disappear, but their products will live on…
… The very capable Will Woodgate hasn't officially announced it yet, but the Tsooj and Vrieselaar products will be integrated into the Woodgate stables.
So if you've been wondering why there's been so little news around Will for some time, it's because he has been hard at work updating the products ready for their release under a new banner. I may be wrong, but I'm speculating that the stacks will be integrated into the Stacks4Stacks and the themes into the Themeflood collections. Henk implies as much in his parting announcement and Tsooj Media is already advertising website construction.
As for working hand in hand, the parting messages on both sites are almost identically worded, implying that the two gentleman will continue to work together.
I, for one, would like to thank Henk and Joost for the invaluable service they've provided over the years and wish them all the very best for their future undertakings. They can rest assured that their products are in the very best hands.
Email was released a couple of days ago, but you'll have to search for it. There's no mention of it on Joe Workman's website – his blog is only updated annually – but hey! I found the link for you!
Email has quietly secured its own web page.
So what's all the hype about? Email is a Foundation based set of stacks that will allow you to build fully responsive marketing campaigns using your favourite app – RapidWeaver, in combination with Stacks 3. If you know how to build a simple web page, then you already know how to build a marketing campaign or a newsletter.
In a similar fashion to Foundation the suite includes a Theme and more than 15 stacks. The stacks will allow you to create a single, or multiple column design with the addition of buttons and CTA's.
When setting out to build an email template, you need to check a couple of things first:
When you drag the Styles stack onto your page and open the stack settings, you'll see a to-do list. An 'Implementation List' that instructs you to Set the Email Theme; Disable Advanced General Settings; Set Title To Subject (the subject of your mail); Set Slogan To Description; Use Only Email Stacks.
Yes, should only use the stacks from the Email suite. Why? Although your email will be HTML, the HTML format that mail apps can render has failed to evolve alongside the www since the turn of the century, hence modern stacks will fail to render correctly.
The Email suite consists of the Styles stack, which has a very similar structure to that of the Foundation Styles; One, Two, Three and Four-Column stacks; a Button; a Callout (CTA); a Divider; an HTML and a Markdown stack; a Header; an Image stack; a Link List; a Spacer; a Visibility stack; a Wrapper and of course a Text stack.
Using the above stacks, you won't be able to replicate a client's website exactly (remember HTML for email is still stuck in the 90's), but you will be able to get pretty damned close – a lot closer than any of the online tools from MailChimp etc. will let you get. And working with Email is a lot easier than the online editors too.
And when you're finished, you can upload your template to one of the online mail services and send it out.
Email has gained only positive comments on the forums since its release and is already widely accepted as the mail template 'app' to use!
Don't know where to start? On the Email homepage, you'll find 15 great templates to download free of charge, with the promise of more to come…
