With a primary focus on a substantially improved performance of Zo2 framework  and organizational structure optimized for better development, highlights of changes in this new version include:

  •  Singleton design pattern introduced into code to involve only one class which is responsible to instantiate itself, to make sure it creates not more than one instance for each template.
  •  New changes implemented in Profile section to give greater flexibility and usability. In this version, we involved almost of configuration into Profile. It means, all four separated settings are now put in only one tab named Layout Profiles. By this way, you can easier to create, rename, remove your profile or even assign your profile to a menu item.  So, Have 4 settings done all with once “Save Config”.


  •  Expanding Layout Builder settings, including: added new Jdoc for each block(Modules / Component / Message / 3rd party extension), improved auto fill for span & offset, also improved compatibility with 3rd party extensions.
  •  Make Mega menus & Canvas menus as standard block
