Essential 2.7.5 Pre-release ready for testing, new features


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:

Post Pages - Post Inline - 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)
