Today is July 8, and as promised, Oxwall 1.7 sees the light of the day. This is another big milestone for the product: an important platform update, plus completely redesigned photos and messages.
If you are running Oxwall of any previous version, you are encouraged to wait until the auto-update prompt appears in your admin area (that make take up to 24 hours). Before you attempt it, make sure to:
- Back up your website. Seriously, folks, better safe than sorry;
- Install all available plugin updates right after the platform update completes;
- Install theme update right after the platform update completes.
With this release we drop support for the following themes maintained by Oxwall Foundation:
If you use one of these themes, please be aware that they are not getting updated to Oxwall 1.7. Feel free to choose another theme in the Oxwall Store (check 1.7 compatibility), or apply the changes by yourself if you have the skills. The reason for this decision is simple: focus. In order to concentrate on iterating critical product components, we have to cut off non-core ones.
Have fun and tell us how you like the new Oxwall. We hope to impress you once again, not less than we do with every release.
Emil & the Oxwall team.
