Today is a special day for us. We've worked very hard and are happy to introduce some big improvements with UIkit 3 Beta 31! Finally, the new Slideshow component that you've all been waiting for is here. We think it is truly amazing! But that's not all. We also got rid of jQuery. Yes, you've heard right, UIkit is now a lot slicker :-) And there is more we would like to highlight in this post.

Today we are excited to announce the release of UIkit 3 Beta 26. This also marks the moment many of you have been waiting for: We are introducing the new Lightbox component! It includes various features to create visually more powerful galleries.
UIkit is the work horse behind pretty much all of our products. It's the open source front-end framework we build and use ourselves to create the YOOtheme Pro Builder and all of our themes. Consequently, we are working on improving UIkit. Today we are happy to release the UIkit 3 Beta 23 which is packed with new components and features.
Since the launch of the first UIkit 3.0 beta version quite a lot of things have happened. We weren’t idle and worked like busy tech-bees on our modular front-end framework to improve its functionality. Yesterday, we just released the 21st beta version. We want to take this opportunity to highlight some of the additions and changes from the last few releases.
Happy new year everyone! We hope you had enjoyable holidays and a good start into 2017. As always, we would like to begin the year by looking back at the past twelve months and review what has happened in the world of YOOtheme, the goals we achieved and what is to come in the near future. It has been quite a year! The Pagekit 1.0 release in spring was the first big milestone of 2016 for us and the second one came in autumn with the launch of YOOtheme Pro.
Since our introduction of UIkit in 2013, it has become one of the most used front-end frameworks that power the modern web. With all the lessons we have learned during that release, we have continuously improved UIkit. After pretty much exactly one year of work and more than 1600 commits, we are taking the next big step today. We are releasing UIkit 3, the newest generation of our framework, which has been completely rethought and rebuilt.
While still being labeled as beta, UIkit 3 is really mature. The complete YOOtheme Pro product, including its theme and all of our websites from the past three months have been built with the new version of the framework. We have also taken the time to write an extensive documentation for every single component. The docs come with many examples that can be copy-pasted right into your own project.
We're very proud to announce the next big leap for our beloved front-end framework: UIkit 3! The development started 8 months ago in January and since then we are working continuously on it. It's a complete overhaul of the entire framework. Compared to UIkit 2, where we've added more and more features with the later releases, the focus of UIkit 3 is on rewriting and optimizing the code base. UIkit 3 will be smarter, faster, leaner and even more powerful.
2015 has been filled with great moments and exciting projects. The beginning of a new year is always a good opportunity to look back and see what has happened. We would also like to take the opportunity and look ahead to see what our plans are for the upcoming months.
UIkit's first release in 2016 comes with a nice new component: the Grid Parallax. But before we look at this new component, we want to express our appreciation for all contributors of UIkit. More than 6000 stargazers on GitHub is a number that gives a glimpse at your enormous support. Thanks to everyone for giving feedback and suggestions on how to enhance UIkit.
Say hello to the new release of UIkit. Version 2.23.0 includes a lot of bug fixes and many improvements. Plus, it comes with three notable additions: Reworked dropdowns, a new column component and inline SVG.
