Breakdance Beta 5

Breakdance Beta 5 is now available.

When you activate beta 5 for the first time, you will need to follow the prompt to regenerate your CSS cache.

We renamed and tweaked a number of element properties. Any designs that use the properties that we moved, removed, or renamed will no longer look exactly the same. You will have to open up your design in Breakdance and set the property again. For a list of elements that were tweaked, read the list below.

Thank you to everyone who reported bugs for Breakdance at https://breakdance.com/bugs.

Thank you to everyone who has provided our support team with WP admin login details so we could solve problems that only took place on certain hosting environments.

We couldn’t get things done this quickly without your help!

Sign up for free to test the beta here or login to the portal to download the beta.
