You can now add a banner image to your project. It’s separate from the Site Logo, and can be customised for every page. In order to use this feature, your projects must be using a theme that supports banner images.

RapidWeaver now includes a built-in web server which allows you to preview your entire site locally, and when you make a change in RapidWeaver the browser will automatically update. This is an amazing new way to edit and preview your RapidWeaver site.

Multiple selection allows you to bulk-reorder or delete pages and resources. This means you can now quickly and easily reorder any number of pages, or delete all your unused resources in one action.

RapidWeaver 7's new Portable Documents feature means that all of you resources are stored within the RapidWeaver project file, rather than referencing them on your Mac. This means you can now easily transfer, or sync, your projects between multiple Macs.

RapidWeaver 7 comes with a entirely new, super fast, super smart publishing engine. You can publish to any number of destinations, including local folders. Choose between FTP, SFTP, and FTPS as your publishing method, customise the number of connections, select the correct publishing path by browsing your server, automatically backup your project files, and more! This is the best, most advanced, most reliable, publishing even seen in RapidWeaver.

We’ve merged the “Google Analytics” and “GoSquared” fields from earlier versions of RapidWeaver into the Site Wide code areas: they’re now part of the “Head” and “Body” areas respectively. This change means you can add even more code to your RapidWeaver projects, and keep it all in one location.

Need to keep your addons in a different folder? You can now choose (and optionally move addons to) a new location such as your Documents folder, or Dropbox.
