The wait is nearly over
The first stable release of Craft 4 has arrived!
What does this mean for you? Because Fido is proudly built on Craft CMS, whenever a new feature, or in this case, or a completely new version arrives, all Fido customer's website's will be upgraded automatically.
This is what makes Fido so powerful and unique. We chose Craft CMS to build our product upon because of the robust, stringent testing, security and performance bits that gets pumped into Craft CMS's core and all of its robust set of plugins.
When can we expect the upgrade to take place?
We are awaiting on just a couple of plugins to get upgraded to Craft CMS's latest version.
New upgrade feature spotlight
Craft CMS4 is packed with a ton of awesome features. We won’t get into all of those in this blog post, but you can checkout the official statement on Craft CMS’s blog.
Some of our favorite features are:
- New element editor slideouts which support drafts and autosaving! Never lose any of your edits and sports a much snappier interface for all Fido customers to enjoy
- Easier focal point adjustments make it easier to set where you want the focal point of images to be. This saves time as previously you needed to click all the way into a particular photo to set where you wanted the website to crop and resize from. Now you can do that directly from the Preview Modal.
There are a ton of other great features that help make Fido customer’s lives much easier. Plus you’ll likely notice a big boost in overall performance too. Saving entries, long blog posts have all been refactored and are now way faster than ever before!
Not only that, Craft CMS makes our lives easier as creators of Fido. So that means we can continue to top what we’ve currently done with Fido to make it leaner, even more stable than it already is, and deliver new features to you even faster!
Can you tell that we’re excited about this update?
Do I need to do anything?
Nope! Once the remaining plugins are updated by their developers, Fido will thoroughly test the updates out and once ready, will deploy those changes to all Fido websites.
We handle the tough stuff so that you can focus on what you love to do! That’s one of the many reasons why we created Fido so that business owner’s, content writers, and webmasters alike don’t have to worry about keeping their websites fresh and their tooling sharp.
