Realmac has released RapidWeaver 7, a major update to the Web design and publishing software that boasts over 50 new features and enhancements. RapidWeaver gains an overhauled FTP engine for improved speed (and adds an FTP path browser for visually selecting a publishing location), adds a built-in Web server for previewing your entire site within the app, adds the SEO Health Check to help improve your search engine optimization, enables you to store resources inside a Portable Document (so you can move the project between multiple Macs), adds four new responsive design themes, adds a Project Backup feature, and reduces the app’s user interface “chrome” to provide more work space. The update also removes Quick Look support to reduce file sizes significantly, improves how the Theme Browser handles duplicates, and adds a Web Server Logs window to help diagnose page errors.
Shortly after the release of version 7.0, Realmac issued version 7.0.1 to fix an issue where themes would not be installed in the correct location, resolve a bug that prevented add-on migration from version 6.x, and prompt the user to restart after installing new plug-ins. RapidWeaver is priced at $99, and you can upgrade to version 7 for $59.99 if you have an existing license. ($99 new, $59 upgrade, 87.8 MB, release notes, 10.11+)
