What’s New in BigBox 1.13.0

There have been 6 minor updates (and a number of patches) to Gutenberg in the last couple of months. While technically the updates are minor, a lot of great improvements have been included!

The major highlights include:

Improved Shipping + Totals UI

Shipping costs, taxes, and additional fees are now even more clearly laid out providing your customers an easy way to see what they are paying for.

Gutenberg 3.5+ Compatibility

Improved support for Gutenberg means more WYSIWYG for buttons, colors, and fonts. Buttons can now use button--size-sm,button--size-md, button--size-lg, “Additional CSS Class” classes to adjust the size of the button.

Better Developer Experience

Developing the Lifestyle and Deco themes for BigBox allowed great insight to what customers might need to develop the theme further. Many new hooks, simplified CSS, and helper functions will make it even easier to develop new products with Gutenberg.
