Free theme updates
Updates for the Torrent RapidWeaver theme are free for all existing users.

You can tell if an update is available for Torrent, by comparing the number shown next to the theme name in the RapidWeaver theme panel, compared with the version number shown on this page.

/Waterfall/Backups/ folder, in your RapidWeaver addons folder.

Free demo versions of Torrent and copies of Torrent installed before 10th January 2015 will not check for updates automatically. Waterfall will only update original themes; those which you have previously duplicated and renamed for modification will not be updated.

Torrent has been diligently developed to work reliably with all major web browsers; ensuring your completed website will look and function to a high standard. Because Torrent is responsive, you can expect it to work well on screens of various shapes and sizes. In particular, you can expect Torrent to work well in the following web browsers, which we've tested the theme with:
- Internet Explorer 9
- Internet Explorer 10
- Internet Explorer 11
- Safari 8
- Chrome 40
- Firefox 35
- Opera 27
- Maxthon 4.4
- TorBrowser 4.0
Torrent has been tested on various popular handheld devices, including a mixture of Apple and Android tablets, iPods and smartphones. Particular attention was paid towards how easy it is for users of these touch devices to navigate websites published using Torrent. You should find pages published using Torrent load quickly and consume less bandwidth, compared with many competing RapidWeaver themes.
Some scripts used by Torrent are 'dual-called'. Using the example of jQuery, some special markup is used in Torrent to determine what browser or version is viewing the webpage. We can then intelligently ensure the web browser is served the most compatible and optimised version of the script possible.
As always, final compatibility of completed webpages published with Torrent boils-down to several other important factors. The format of content or the type of addons used to build a page can have a significant impact on compatibility (for example, some web browsers do not support embedded video or sound files in particular formats or presentation). Additionally the web server hosting the website can also sometimes impact the compatibility of completed web pages. Likewise there may be occasions when plugins or extensions installed in a web browser cause issues; such as blocking social networking icons from displaying or blocking links from opening in new windows. As always, we invite you to download a free demo version of Torrent yourself; enabling you to run more detailed tests against specific content types or addons. We're happy to browser test completed websites published using Torrent at no extra cost.
