Development update

We know, it's been silent for a while but there's lots of stuff to talk about. And it's all good news.
There will be a maintenance release soon. PivotX 2.0.1 fixes some bugs and improves the overall performance. We're also working on PivotX 2.1.0 with a lot of new features. The feedbackforum works out great. There are many useful suggestions for improvement and many of them are going to be implemented in the following releases. Thank you for that. Keep 'em coming.

New backend interface
We made a start with a complete overhaul of the admin interface. This redesign will be implemented in two steps. The first step will be purely cosmetic. PivotX gets a 'lighter' look to make things even friendlier. The second step is a more substantial one and takes some research. We want the interface to be more flexible. It will be completely rebuilt to improve usabilty and user experience. That means the dashboard will be more flexible and all options will be regrouped if necessary.

A lot of extensions are being rewritten, documented and published on the soon to be released extensions website. There are two noteworthy new extensions: Formbuilder and Ultimate Fields.  
They do exactly as they are named. With the formbuilder you can easily include fully customizable orderforms and contactforms in entries or pages. Awesome!
The Ultimate Fields extension lets you add extra fields in the PivotX texteditor. You can add imagefields, textfields and datefields. As many as you like. It makes PivotX even more useful as a content management system.

Both extensions will be released soon, within weeks.

There are still some blank sections in the documentation. We are working on that but could use some help. Please send us a mail if you think you can help.

Like we said, all good news :)
