The vast majority of the work done for this Affino release is behind the scenes, or simply won’t be noticed except that the overall feel of Affino will have improved when you’re using it.
There are some elements though which are new or radically updated, you can see the slides below in the detailed post.
Radically improved Media Control Centre, much more usable.
The new Commerce panel greatly simplifies setting up and managing stores. It is particularly useful when you have complex pricing, attributes, date logic and discounts all affecting an item.
You can really understand the value of the activity being undertaken on your site. No longer is it a case of monitoring the number of page views you’ve received, rather it is a question of knowing how much of any specific valuable activity has been taking place.
There’s a quick view of how users can now log in via Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. These links can now be placed on every page and are integral to the user account management.
The Blog Highlights (and Article Highlights) Design Elements greatly improve the Blog browsing experience.
The New News Format greatly improves you news pages
A number of art galleries are using Affino now, and the Artworks media presentation is being improved continuously
We’re definitely going to extend the number of images that Affino supports in a single blog post in the future as there are quite a few more elements you should check out including the Blogs, Video Player, Forums, Article Highlights DE, Cover Flow DE, Shopping Basket and Checkout.
Take a good look at the release notes and you’ll see that there are hundreds of layout and usability improvements in this release, keep an eye out for them.
