    • Various page loading optimizations
  • Miscellaneous Improvements
    • Further optimization of templates
    • Improved styling of block filter bars on certain pages
    • Removed numerous custom CSS templates from loading in all instances, reducing page file size. Now custom CSS templates are called only in instances needed
    • Fixed a bug where the container element for articles or spaced-apart messages would have a drop shadow during the Floating Content layout
    • Reworked the content drop shadow system. Previously, drop shadows for popup elements (menus, overlays, tooltips etc) shared either the same drop shadows as the Content Drop Shadows specified in the [Nulumia] UX Settings group, or were hard-coded via CSS. You will now find a new option to use custom drop shadows for all popup-based elements, allowing for different shadow styles than on-page content. This is helpful when preferring different colors or opacities for shadows between the two.
    • You can now enable or disable drop shadows for content elements, and popup elements separately. For example, this allows for disabling content element shadows, but retaining drop shadows for menus and other popup types.
    • Cleaned all hard-coded or style property based drop shadows from all elements, to utilize the new system
    • Added drop shadows to many elements from third-party addons
  • Header & Navigation

    • Removed all hard-coded alignment of the sub-navigation, in order to use the new alignment setting in the [Nulumia] Header & Navigation property group
    • Improved slide-out menu icon styling in some themes
    • Fixed a bug due to earlier versions which would cause the responsive/collapsed nav from inheriting its styling
    • Made the alignment of the sub-navigation when using the Compact Header default to right aligned, changed property label to reflect this change
  • Carousels
    • Added further fixes into many themes which will prevent a bug where XFMG media sliders don't function
    • Deprecated now legacy Slick framework from all themes. If you have custom content on your site that uses the built-in Nulumia slick bundle, you should migrate your content to use Xenforo's built in Lightslider module
    • Added a new setting to control whether the featured and icon carousels are shown to admins at all times (previously default behavior)
    • Improved handling of padding in the featured and logo icon carousels. When using the "floating" layout vs "block", carousels will no longer be inset from the page width.
