    Hi Everyone,

    Today I released BackStop Themes V2.8.6. Highlights are:

    1) Upgraded PrettyPhoto and Galleria
    2) Reduced the theme size by 15% (I dropped some unused component demo files MSMW team were too lazy to remove)
    3) Added a post-specific post_slug class to all the posts and pages so we can do page/post-specific CSS customisations.

    And all while maintaining backward compatibility so none of us has to unnecessarily invest in our legacy client sites!

    Changelog V2.8.6 (24 Oct 2017):
    ---------------------------
    - Housekeeping: Remove MSIE9 specific respond.min.js code since this browser is no longer supported
    - Housekeeping: Add "alt" tags to html img statements that did not have one
    - Housekeeping: Clean-up some comments and rename framework.php & framework-common.php to themecore.php and themecore-library.php
    - Housekeeping: Delete local jQuery-form Javascript library and switch to using WordPress included version (upgrade from v2.49 --> v3.37.0)
    - Housekeeping: Upgrade local PrettyPhoto Javascript library from v3.1.5 --> v3.1.6 and delete 1MB of unused test images
    - Housekeeping: Upgrade local Galleria Javascript library from v1.2.7--> v1.5.7 and delete unused demo and theme files
    - Bugfix: PrettyPhoto upgrade eliminates possible XSS vulnerability
    - Enhancement: Altered theme auto-update logic to reset the transient timecheck after all themes have been checked rather than on each theme check
    - Enhancement: Added post_slug class (examples: page_hello, post_welcome) to all posts except the front-page (which is a special case)
    - Enhancement: Changed the post date format from a hardcoded format to the Administration > Settings > General date format
    - Enhancement: Changed the post comments date format from a hardcoded format to the Administration > Settings > General date format
    - NOTE: A software delta review indicates that the jQuery-form and PrettyPhoto upgrades should not affect existing software or CSS customisations

    Upcoming Release Objectives:
    -------------------------
    1) Maintain backward compatibility (no database schema changes or HTML / CSS naming convention changes)
    2) Finish the clean-up
    3) Focus on making more use of the Customizer
    4x ) Add in Google Fonts support (I will continue to support the Cufon fonts as long as possible...the original developer of the Cufon code is ramping down due to lack of market interest in Cufon)
    5) Add in some basic enhancements like flat design support, parallax support
    6) Skins, Skins, Skins...I want to beef up the skin manager and get some useful skins and skin management features. The current 9 themes will be progressively transitioned to being 9 skins for a single BackStop theme
    7) Gutenberg support
    8) 100% WordPress compliance to reserve the option to move the theme into the WordPress repository

    NOTE: I will NOT be adding drag&drop page design...I believe that is progressively being added to the core and proprietary Drag & Drop themes will leave people with a complex and expensive migration process to a standard WordPress drag&drop base. BackStop Themes will evolve along with the WordPress core, take full advantage of the improving core theme support and maintain backward compatibility and auto-migration if required.

    That's is for now.
