New Updates in Genesis 2.7
Genesis 2.7 is coming with some key architectural components aiming to modernize the codebase. This release also includes bug fixes and performance enhancements.
1. Ready with WordPress 5.0 and Gutenberg
2. PHP 5.3
Genesis 2.7 requires PHP version 5.3 or greater in order to function properly.
Because Studiopress is trying to slowly increase their minimum requirements in Genesis, to encourage users to upgrade outdated PHP versions, as well as give them the ability to create cool new features that rely on the more modern tools available only in more modern versions of PHP.
3. More Advanced Architecture
Genesis is nearly a decade old! Which means that it uses some coding methods that could use a modern refresh and each time it is becoming better and better with a new release.
In the new release, they have moved code to classes where appropriate and also moved more and more of the default Genesis behavior toward easy to read configuration files.
This improvement is a worthy investment in the long-term quality and maintainability of the Genesis Framework, clearing the way for newer experiences and better products in the Genesis ecosystem.
