Arras 3 Alpha 2 Released
Again, please do not use this on production sites, or anywhere you don’t want to risk breaking things!
Here’s where to download it for testing! Please note that since this is for testing only, you use this at your own risk. There is no support for this release on live servers!
That said, at this point, I’d be grateful to any and all who want to participate in the testing of the new version.
This Alpha 2 Test Version is all about the colors. Testers, here’s what to look for:
- Color schemes have been updated, and color scheme options have been moved from the Arras Options admin page into the “Colors” section of the Customizer (Apprearance > Customize > Colors).
- Please be on the lookout for spots where the colors aren’t applied or inconsistent.
- You can now add/modify/delete color schemes from within a child theme using the new ‘arras_color_schemes’ hook. (No more registering a “style directory” and then messing about with custom CSS!) See the comments and format of the array to filter in library/styles.php
Please, if you notice anything that needs corrected, find a bug, or have an idea open an issue on GitHub.
Many thanks to all you testers!
The WordPress.org Theme Review Team ruled last month that to qualify for inclusion in the “official” theme repository themes must move all their options into the Customizer interface. While this was on the roadmap for Arras 3 anyway, I’ve moved this up as a priority issue which I’ll be implementing in the next release.
The next release should also be the long-awaited first beta, and I’m hopeful still (but without making any guarantees) of that happening by the end of May.
