Tonight I am proud to release the latest version of the Moodle Essential theme to the community. Lots of work has gone into bug fixing as well as introducing new features requested by the community.
Before anyone posts about it, the issue with the first slide of the slideshow is still present and I am searching for a fix.
Many thanks also has to go out to many in the community for offering bug fixes and translations. Essential is fast becoming a true community effort and one I am proud to be part of.
