Stacks 3 is Finally Here

I am so excited that Stacks 3 has finally launched. It has a ton of amazing new features that will revolutionize the way that we build websites. There are so many new features in Stacks 3. Here is a short list of my favorites:

  • New modern Ui that is both fast and flexible
  • Partials are so amazeballs
  • New Child-of stacks
  • Awesome new stacks settings controls
  • jQuery and Font Awesome are built-in
  • So much more

You can check out the big feature list over on the YourHead blog

In the above video, I review the new Stacks 3 features through the lens of the Foundation v1.5 update. This is the biggest update ever for both Stacks and Foundation. I hope that you like them both. 

I am very happy to present Page Safe to you. This stack provides and simple and secure way to password protect pages on your RapidWeaver website. Plus its probably has the most sexy login screen you have ever seen!

I am really excited about Page Safe. We have spent weeks refining the smallest of details to make this stack really shine. I know that it’s going to make your life a lot easier. Now go forth and make your websites secure!

Cheers,
Joe

Foundation 1.3 - Your site has never been this fast

Check out Foundation for RapidWeaver at http://foundation.joeworkman.net.

I am happy to announce our third big update to Foundation is here. If I had just one word to sum it all up, it would be SPEED!!!

We pioneered some new asset loading techniques that no other RapidWeaver addon as done before. But don’t worry, we will be sharing all of this our fellow developer community so that all of your websites are faster. Not just the ones built with Foundation. :-)

Here are the release notes for all 3 Foundation stack packs:

Here are a short list of what I feel are the biggest highlights:

  • Foundation will produce the fastest websites you have ever had.
  • The Foundation theme can now be autoupdated via Waterfall
  • Google font rendering has been enhanced with new settings for fallback fonts, custom weight definitions and more.
  • Form templates have been improved and you can now add a reply-to field.
  • Off Canvas got a nice work over with some new settings and better performance.

I told you that we were going full throttle! Even though we just released the awesome Points stack less than a week ago, today I am happy to release our new Parallax stack!

This stack has been in the works for some time. Its by far the easiest way to implement Parallax backgrounds on your websites. Now go forth and make your websites hip!

Cheers,
Joe
