Kraken for WordPress and more

Last week I released Kraken for WordPress 3. Version 3 brings with it some important changes:

  • Many of the built-in functions have been converted to optional plugins. This provides developers with more flexibility, and makes it easier to port your data from one theme to another.
  • Deprecated functions were removed or updated.
  • Tabs are now used consistently throughout the theme.
  • Internationalization was added to whole theme—it’s now 100% translation-ready.

New Plugins #

With the change, a handful of functions that were baked into Kraken for WordPress are now available as standalone plugins.
