Essential 2.7.5 Pre-release ready for testing, new features

1637

Essential 2.7.4 was just released to the community picking up where Julian Ridden left off with development. The updated version now available only as a pre-release for testing includes a lot of additional fixes which were part of a major cleanup. Additionally the update by David Bezemer and Gareth Barnard includes over 10 enhancements including:

WIRIS
  • Automatically collapsing breadcrumbs
  • Updated messages menu (more like Facebook which is borrowed from the Shoelace theme)
  • Huge performance improvement by switching to Bootstrap all in one to reduce HTTP requests
  • New user menu (similar to what we have seen in the Moodle Prototype)
