Summary & Highlights

Welcome to Linchpin Essentials 2.3!




The biggest star of this update is without a doubt: Accessibility!

Navigate through Linchpin in read mode via keyboard now! Use the Tab key to navigate through the whole system. Skip links will help to get to the desired content faster. We also added focus frames to elements, so that it's easier to see which element is focused and where on the page you are. Use the Enter key to perform actions and the Escape key to close elements like pop-up windows. We improved screen reader compatibility of Linchpin, too! We still have some work to do here, but it's already way better than it was before this update. (smile)

Of course, while accessibility is a very important topic for both you and us, we also worked on bringing you some quickwins, improvements and bugfixes with this update.

Make sure to check out the full release notes!
