Release 1.0.8 (Beta)
we’ve got some exciting updates to share with you!
Improved Backend Experience & Partial Code Rewrite
I won’t lie: this update makes me slightly nervous. 😅 We’ve changed thousands of lines of code to improve the backend UI and AT’s modularity. You can now enable/disable virtually any category, tab, and individual option in the backend, and it will reflect in both the builder UX and the resources loaded on the frontend.
Do you need to reset your theme settings? It’s not absolutely necessary, but highly recommended. If you already have tons of CSS variables and don’t want to input them all again, that’s fine – you can safely skip the reset. In the future, we’ll likely upgrade the reset function to target specific data instead of deleting everything. Some options may need to be selected and saved again.
However, it’s essential to save your theme settings once you’ve updated the plugin. This way, all the new data will be accurately stored in the database, and you won’t experience critical errors or warnings.
Tons of enhancements and bug fixes.
There are too many to list here, but they include acf_form() compatibility, the clamp unit for older browser support, fixing some display errors in the builder, and more.
New shortcut indicators
This feature has been requested a lot in the past, and now it’s finally here! Both the style shortcuts (inside the left panel) and the pseudo-element shortcuts indicate if a custom value is set in the element. A new builder tweak has also been introduced to display indicators inside the structure panel to identify which elements have custom styles on the ID level and which ones have a global class set!
We had some cool features in the queue that we decided to delay (such as SCSS compatibility inside the Advanced CSS panel) to focus on bug fixes and finally release the stable version. We’ll continue to do that over the next couple of weeks. Hopefully, we should be all set by the end of May!
Stay tuned and happy updating!
