Included Packages

This is the list of features you get when you download and install Bitweaver. Features come bundled in what we call Packages. There is a core set of Packages which all other Packages require, naturally we call these Required Packages. The rest are all optional, and you can turn them on or off depending on the features you would like on your site.

Add On Packages

There are additional Packages which for one reason or another are not included with the current release. These can be downloaded seperately and installed in Bitweaver. Visit the Add On Features page to see what is available.
