RapidWeaver 8.8 is now optimized for M1 Apple Silicon Macs

We’re thrilled to announce that RapidWeaver 8.8 is now available for download and is a free update for all RapidWeaver customers.

To use RapidWeaver on M1 Macs you’ll want to make sure all your plugins are up-to-date. Stacks from YourHead Software is one of the most popular plugins for RapidWeaver and is also available as a Universal build.

What’s New?

  • RapidWeaver now runs natively on Apple Silicon
  • Fixed an issue with the publishing engine
  • Many other improvements and fixes to keep things running smoothly

To take advantage of the huge speed gains that the M1 chip can bring, please make sure you are running RapidWeaver 8.8.0 and Stacks 4.2.0 or newer.

To learn more about running RapidWeaver on new M1 based Macs, please take a look at our Help guide on RapidWeaver and M1 Compatibility. This is especially important if you’re using third-party plugins.

Happy Weaving!
