This release includes some of the backend menu simplification options for website Super Admins, allowing the opportunity to hide menu or dashboard items and settings, which are not required for all users.

We have also included an update to the Akvo RSR data feed. You can now add feeds for your Akvo RSR projects and updates, filtered by country.

The option to add your own selected Google Font via the 'Customize' area has now been included. This means that you can find a Google Font you like and install it directly on your site, rather than choose one of the preselected fonts.

New Features

Install Google Font

Install up to 3 new Google Fonts via 'Customize'.
