Today marks a milestone in the evolution of the WooFramework, the engine powering all of our WordPress themes. The WooFramework is largely responsible for the theme settings screens, as well as handling any custom fields added to your content, displaying your media and enhancing your theme with breadcrumbs and other useful features.
Everyone, please meet WooFramework version 6.0!
What to expect from version 6.0
WooFramework 6.0 is a large code rewrite, including a myriad of features focussed around self help and improving the overall user experience for you and your clients. This includes features such as a new welcome screen (displayed when activating your theme), a revamped settings screen which fits seamlessly into WordPress, and an enhanced “Framework” screen for displaying information about your theme, backing up your theme settings helping you to update the WooFramework itself.
To find out more, please see our blog post discussing what to expect.
