Yesterday, I got an email from StudioPress, they have released a new version of their Genesis framework. So, If you are using Genesis framework, then you will be happy to hear that StudioPress has released Genesis 2.1 with some good features and changes.


It’s been nearly 6 months since we last updated Genesis, and we’d like to say that is a reflection of how stable the Genesis Framework is.

Today, we’re very happy to announce that Genesis 2.1 is now available for you.

Genesis 2.1 is part sensible additions, and part housekeeping. We’ve added a number of the theme settings to the WordPress Customizer screen, so you can watch your changes take place in real-time.
