ENVY PRO Version 1.1 has been released (update from v1.0.3), and although classified as a major update, there are only a handful of changes; including modified top padding on subpages when using a custom header-image, and an adjustment to positioning of the sales flash to prevent a horizontal scrollbar on smaller screens.
So, why call it a Major Update? Well, the main.js file, which regulates the header and full-window slider functions, has been completely reworked. Some ENVY PRO users had noted a ‘jump’ delay in loading sub-pages. This was because the entire page required loading (including images) before setting the page displacement to allow for the fixed header. The ‘jump’ can never be totally removed, however it is now accelerated and less noticeable as the displacement is set well before the full page is loaded. Add a page caching plugin for further efficiency.
Current ENVY PRO users can apply for future version releases for up to 12 months following original purchase. Simply submit your request on a Contact Form along with your original Customer Order Number and the latest version will be added to your account (usually within 24 hours).
As with all updates, please take great care not to overwrite your theme customisations if choosing to update theme files. Always make back-ups before proceeding and ensure that file/folder replacements are done via FTP or a file manager rather than activating and deactivating themes via WordPress’s admin.
For advice on protecting your future theme customisations from theme updates, please read the tutorial Update-Safe Genesis Theme Customisation.
