Go Back to RapidWeaver

You may have noticed that just before Black Friday, Nick Cates retired a number of his brilliant stacks. The relatively new suite of Go stacks disappeared along with AB Switch, Production and others. You may remember that Go was a simple-to-use CMS system and it was disappointing to see it disappear after such a short time on the market.

Go adopters will be pleased to hear that Go has resurfaced. Not on the Nick Cates site, but on Mike Yrabedra's YabDab site! And there's more good news: instead of a single licence being necessary for each published site, Go is now tagged with the moniker Go CMS Unlimited; a single purchase (albeit rather more expensive than the original release) allows you to add Go CMS Unlimited to as many sites as you please AND for a [very] limited period Go CMS Unlimited is available at half price!

And, in case you forgot, Go CMS [Unlimited] is a suite of four stacks. Go Base, Blog, Content and Lock. Deployment of Go is simple, as is the editing of the published pages.

If you require a simple-to-use CMS system that includes blogging possibilities, be sure to. check out Mikes pages – quickly!

Brexit and .EU sites

If you reside in the UK and applied for a .eu domain a couple of years ago (like myself in 2005) you're in for a shock! Now that the UK has voted to withdraw from the European Union, the registry for .eu domains (EURid) has decided to revoke domains registered to UK residents, and prevent them from purchasing new ones.

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.

RapidWeaver 8

RapidWeaver 8 was released yesterday with opinions on the forums ranging from “Nightmare” to “Brilliant”. The majority of the comments, however, are positive.
Personally, I’ve been using RW8 for a couple of weeks now and have to say that the transition from 7—8 has been a smooth one.

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.

NewsFlash – Duck Soup

Since the Weaver's Space Conference people have been impatiently awaiting the demo file that Marten Claridge promised to make available during his presentation 'Designing Every Element'.

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!

Departing Friends

Two old friends are retiring from the RapidWeaver scene. Henk Vrieselaar and Joost Spijker, two Dutch colleagues that often worked hand in hand, have both posted notices to the effect that, of immediately, they are leaving for other fields. Both will be missed.

Henk Vrieselaar

took

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.
