1. CMS Builder v3 BETA - New Responsive Admin UI

We've just released v3.00 Beta 1. You can download it here:
http://www.interactivetools.com/order/download.php

We're currently running this on our own site and have upgraded a few client sites, but it is a BETA so the standard precautions apply, backup first and don't upgrade mission critical sites. The major new feature are:

  • Mobile Responsive Design - We've completely rewritten the backend to be mobile responsive using Bootstrap 3, while maintaining a familiar look & feel to version 2.
  • Major Rewrite - We've optimized and rewritten many of the program internals for better performance and maintainability moving forward.
  • Dozens of bug fixes and improvements - Many minor bugs, issues, and annoyances have been addressed.
  • New Server Requirements - PHP 5.4.0+ and MySQL 5.0+ (make sure you have this before upgrading! Check the bottom of the Admin > General page)

Please post any feedback, questions, or bugs you find!

2. CMS Builder 4 pack sale (until January 6th)

Our CMS Builder 4-pack for $400 sale is back! Save 50% on any 4-pack purchase of CMS Builder for one week only. Don't miss out - buy now and Save on purchases of 4 (each license for only $99.97!). Take advantage of a total savings of $400 off the regular CMS Builder price. Place an order or if you have any questions, give us a call (toll free 1-800-752-0455), send us an email, or post in the forum. We're always here to help you out!

3. Office hours Over the Holidays

Over the holidays our office will be closed on:
Dec. 24th, 2015 - Thursday
Dec. 25th, 2015 - Friday
Jan. 1st, 2016 - Friday - Happy New Year!

Our team at interactivetools.com would like to wish you Happy Holidays! We hope you have a fantastic and festive holiday, filled with Christmas lights, hot chocolate, snowmen and snowshoes (or surfing, if you're one of our southern hemisphere friends!) Enjoy this special time of year with your friends, family, and community.
Happy Holidays,
Your friends at interactivetools.com
