The minimalist Pelican theme.

Flex 3.0 and upcoming breaking changes

Flex 2.6 will be the last release without breaking changes.

Flex 3.0 is under development and will introduce breaking changes.

The breaking changes will include:

  • Removal of deprecated plugins and integrations
  • Removal and renaming of configuration variables
  • Removal of Less.js and Gulp.js
  • Refactoring of multiple templates

Flex has grown beyond expectation over the last few years and is hard to maintain and accept new features.

You can check the current progress in the v3 branch.

New features won't be accepted unless submited to v3 branch, bug fixes will still be accepted in the master branch.

Once 2.6 is out, the v3 branch will be merged into master.

As always, if you want something that only makes sense to you, fork Flex and create a new theme.
