General messages

Didn’t I tell you last week that version was coming soon? Well, it did a couple of days later. Onwards!

We also told you more about the UI Kit projet, which we would love to see community members participate in! Contact us at [email protected] if you would like to contribute or submit ideas related to this project.

Finally, Core developer @maximebiloe wrote a bit about the Parent/Child Theme feature, which was introduced in version 1.7 but wasn’t really explored on this blog. Read on!

Asking about, right? We’re still working on it, and have a couple more things that need to be done before we freeze the code. Still, we expect to release it in late October. You can already have a look at its code and try it out!
