The Divi Changelog

What does Divi Changelog mean?

A changelog is a log or record of all notable changes made to a website or and app and other software. A changelog usually includes records of bug fixes, improvements and new features. Some open source projects include a changelog as one of the top level files in their distribution. Release Notes can be added to the changelog, describing the features more in depth.

Blog post: Changelog and Release Notes explained for non-developers

Updating Divi to the latest version

Login to your WordPress dashboard and go to Appearance > Themes and click Theme Details to see your current Divi version. If there is a new version available, you can click “Update now”. However, it’s wise to wait a week or two before installing a major update to make sure that third party plugin developers have the time to update their plugins for 100% compatibility with the latest Divi version.

You should always make a backup your website before conducting a major update and – if possible – use a staging server for test purposes before deploying updates to your live website. 

Major Divi feature updates

Every once in a while, Elegant Themes releases completely new Divi features, for example Global Styles, Transformation Controls and Quick Actions. These updates are also covered in the Divi changelog but they are also followed by a more detailed blog post and video from Elegant Themes, featuring the CEO Nick Roach.

Follow the category “Theme Releases” on the Elegant Themes blog to stay updated on the most important feature updates or see the list below:

November 1, 2023: The Release Date For Divi 5 Public Alpha: Q1 2024

https://youtu.be/k4sQ_1Rm2eE

At the start of the year, the Divi team set a lofty goal for themselves – to deliver the first public version of Divi 5 to the user community before the year draws to a close. With only two months remaining in 2023, the finish line is nearly in sight.

However, in the spirit of transparency and to manage expectations, the team acknowledges that while the goal is within reach, it might be wiser to anticipate the release of the Divi 5 Public Alpha in the first quarter of the following year (Q1). This adjustment to the timeline is a precautionary measure to ensure that the release lives up to the high standards that Divi users have come to expect.

In this exciting phase of Divi 5’s development, the team is making sure that the final product is polished and ready to meet the needs of its diverse user base. The decision to extend the timeline, if necessary, reflects their commitment to delivering a robust and feature-rich Divi 5 Public Alpha.

As the project moves forward, Divi enthusiasts can look forward to a well-rounded and comprehensive experience once the Divi 5 Public Alpha is released. The team’s dedication to providing a high-quality product is evident, and it’s a testament to their commitment to delivering excellence in web design and development.

Stay tuned for more updates on Divi 5, and rest assured that the wait will be well worth it. The Divi team’s determination to deliver a remarkable product remains unwavering, and users can expect a powerful and user-friendly tool to enhance their web design endeavors.
