Update: The beta has completed successfully with the release of Builder 2.8.0. Thank you to all that participated.
I am very pleased to announce that we are now ready to start the beta test for the new Builder version that includes the import/export feature. A beta test is when a pre-release product is made available to users for further testing before the final release. We don’t do many releases like this, so we are very interested to see the response from testers.
The reason that we are doing a beta test is that Builder has gone through many large changes to allow this new feature to work. Since so much has changed, there could possibly be problems with the new code that we haven’t found yet. Our hope is that some of our community members will try out this pre-release version and run it through the wringer so that any remaining issues are identified and fixed before the full release. In other words, the more people that use the code, the faster any potential problems can be found and fixed.
To participate in this Builder beta testing, first, you need to have an active Builder theme (or package with Builder) membership. Second, join our Beta Program if you have not done so already. Once you are part of the Beta Program, a new “Beta Downloads” section will appear on your member page with a download link for “Builder Theme Import/Export Beta”. Applications to join the Beta Program are processed manually. You will be notified by email when your beta application is approved.
Please use the Builder Import/Export Beta Feedback thread in the support forum to report any issues you encounter while testing.
There has already been a large number of new Beta Program signups. Thank you in advance to everyone for helping test this pre-release version.
