I’m an author and designer of 30 years’ standing, but comparatively inexperienced in coding websites. I can write html, css and JS, but I am very slow at it!
I’ve used Blocs before (okay) and now RW (better). I’ve just built a website using RW8 with Stacks 4. Foundry delivered, and I was able to precisely meet the designs prior to building.
Great. Here’s my concern…
I am hearing chatter that the upcoming RW9 means the end of Stacks. Not sure if that is true. But if it is, does that mean I cannot maintain the website I have just built if I upgrade to RW9?
I’d appreciate views on this.
I’m in the same situation. Two years ago I started (for the 1st time) using RW and bought RW8 with Stacks 3 & then 4. Chose to buy Foundry and all related products (very happy with my choice) and added some addons from Joe and other developers, but my main package is Foundry.
So I was very happy to read Adam’s post that he will continue supporting RW. I build one site and as a customer I want the site to continue to work and all developers to continue updating their products as Adam. I purchase Stacks 3 & 4 so I’m expecting as customer this product and all products bought for RW8 to be updated and supported under RW8. If not this is not very customer friendly support.
As a customer I would like to chose which platform I want to use in the future RW8 or maybe RW9 or stack5, but this is my decision and I would like to thank @elixirgraphics that he will support his customers, no matter which platform they will chose…That’s the correct way to support your customers and not pushing them to GO to only one new platform…
Like I said, we have very limited knowledge of both apps at this point. I’ll update the Q&A thread, or make a new one when we have more information. With that I’m going to close this thread but if you’ve got specific questions feel free to post them in the Q&A thread and I’ll be glad to address them the best I can with the information I have.
