Introducing 3.1 - Chamaeleo
We are very excited to share our first major 3.x release with you and release it into the wild: Say hello to 3.1 - Chamaeleo!
A word on our release schedule:
We set out the goal for Kirby 3 to work with a much quicker release cycle, in short: bi-weekly minor releases for bug fixes, bi-monthly major releases for features. We are quite happy to see that this has all worked out so far and we feel very good moving forward like this. We hope you do too - you can follow our release schedule here: https://roadmap.getkirby.com

fields: category: label: Category type: select options: a: A b: B c: C other: Other … other: label: Enter your category type: text when: category: other
We wanted to start with a basic version but will include more possibilities to it in upcoming releases.
