The latest update introduces several noteworthy new features and improvements.
Other key new features include the addition of conic and radial gradients, enhancing design versatility, and the ability to filter templates by type within Bricks > Templates, streamlining template management.
Significant enhancements in Dynamic Data include the introduction of new tags like “current_wp_date” and “author_archive_url,” along with a new “Current URL” element condition, expanding dynamic content capabilities.
The Slider element now features a new “Loop” control, and the Carousel or Related Posts element can now utilize “query_results_count” for enhanced functionality.
The Counter element has been upgraded with customizable thousand separators, new typography controls, and dynamic data support.
Improvements focus on user experience and system efficiency. Notably, the Bricks settings have been tweaked to ensure custom code uses a left-to-right direction, enhancing consistency. There’s also a server-side validation for MIME types in the Form element, increasing security.
The Mini Cart has been adjusted to better accommodate the wp-admin bar, and the Map element now loads map styles as needed, optimizing resource use.
Additionally, the update brings several bug fixes, with the most crucial being compatibility fixes for WordPress 6.4+, including resolving an admin bar margin issue and a PHP error on the “System Information” page, which are considered significant due to their impact on functionality and system stability.
