Genesis 1.9 Beta Out Now

As we reported earlier this month, StudioPress are getting ready to release version 1.9 of their Genesis framework.

In fact, Genesis 1.9 is now in Beta version and you can already download it and give it a spin. We don’t recommend you use it in production just now, but it’s good to test it so that you can get accustomed to the changes that have been implemented.

As we have already mentioned, these are the main new features:

  • New look to the Genesis parent theme
  • Transformation of some widgets into plugins
  • Google Author Highlights

Give Genesis a spin today!
