This minor release fixes several bugs and adds a workaround for a an issue with image field classes.
There are no changes to the sub-theme. Changes have only been made to the core theme and AT Admin.
- Media module, User Badges and potentially other modules mistakenly set attribute classes as a string. This can cause a fatal error because Adaptivetheme tries to set image field classes correctly as an array. A workaround was added to detect if the class attribute is a string or an array and set the classes appropriately thus not causing a fatal error. Please see this issue: http://drupal.org/node/1711746
- In some instances width and height attributes are missing from image elements. I have not ascertained when or why this happens - only that it is not caused by the theme and is likely a module (only one user has reported such an issue). A workaround was added to mitigate an undefined offset notice: http://drupal.org/node/1716088
- title prefix and suffix were printed twice in AT Admin: http://drupal.org/node/1732330
- Several CSS fixes for AT Admin were added:
-- drag and drop table row handles http://drupal.org/node/1720552
-- the location of the shortcuts icon/link moved to the end of the page title
-- extraneous padding was removed from the header
Initial stable release for Adaptivetheme 7.x-3.0
If you have used previous release candidates please check settings for the Unset CSS feature - the setting names changed and if you save your theme settings without updating your settings (by re-checking unset files in theme settings) your settings will be lost.
Please see the notes for RC5.
This is a quick update for a wrong check used in validation. My apologies, I thought I had pushed this just prior to RC5, but I had not.
RC6 changes just one check for the gutter width value in the settings validation function.
RC5 fixes an issue with the type juggling for theme settings introduced in RC4 where the font settings caused a fatal error due to bad return value of the setting (which in turn caused a file not be included and thus the fatal error for an undefined function).
This juggling has been removed and instead I have changed some comparison operators where they were known to cause issues on some systems, namely in theme_breadcrumb.
Other small changes and improvements:
- set font type and size to none for all fonts as the default setting
- white space cleanup, some files had some trailing white spaces
- added some more checks for extensions
- improved some warning messages, such as the theme version compatibility check messages
- reduced the number of calls to drupal_get_path()
- load the font functions by default, I thought this might create more overhead but actually it doesn't
Fixes a set of bugs unearthed in RC3 where panels and gpanels settings were not set, causing undefined variable notices and warnings in theme settings.
Also added a type juggle to theme settings to mitigate problems with checking theme setting values.
Just the last minute I decided to add a new mixin, since I use this quite a lot - its for markup free clearing and uses the overflow hidden method, quite useful.
This release is to update form states since they changed in Drupal 7.14, which fixes the issue with hidden max-width settings and other issues surrounding form states (mainly cases where some theme settings could not be seen or properly enabled).
I have decided to release an RC3 due to several large features that have been committed since RC2. In particular the feature to allow for removing and moving blocks and regions in mobile devices.
This release will also fix many small bugs in RC2 such as the undefined variables for attributes you may be getting in some subthemes (these new attribute arrays were added after RC2 shipped).
Due to time constraints I cannot write a full commit log here, please refer to the log: http://drupal.org/node/519586/commits
New features have been added:
- aforementioned feature to move blocks and region in mobile, requires the Browscap module
- taxonomy term template converted to HTML5
- some new options for breadcrumbs
- Standard layout added to the panels/gpanels layout settings
- configurable path to generated files (useful if you are using version control)
- drush command added, generate a subtheme using "drush adaptivetheme"
- regex relative paths in generated stylesheets to maintain paths to images and assets called in CSS files
Other than bug fixes and minor updates such as improving the documentation etc (string changes), we can call this done.
RC2 is the last of our Release Candidate releases. Hereafter we will go for a stable release. The theme has been in development now for many months and is very stable.
Included in this release are mostly usability/user experience improvements, bug fixes and small feature enhancements - there are no "new features", only adjustments to existing features.
- Responsive Panels and Gpanels system will now only load what is used. This means if you are not using Panels only the settings for Gpanels that are actually used in the theme will show up. If you are using Panels they will all show, and if you are using both (e.g. using Panels with Pixture Reloaded) then they will all show and the theme will tell you which Gpanels layouts you are using. If Panels is not enabled and you have no Gpanels, a likely scenario when first starting, then nothing shows and you get a friendly message about this. This is a UX improvement - users got confused and thought they needed to install the Panels module, or that it was a requirement. Also the default "show all" overwhelmed some users when in fact they were only using one or two Gpanels.Read more
Many small bug fixes and updates for the 3.x branch in preparation for a new major version release of the 6.x branch.
OK, this is it, the Release Candidate is a go!
From here on in new features will not be added, only bugs and minor tweaks will be applied, so we're really looking for those bugs or small oversights that may have occurred at some stage during dev, and we can only find those by actually using the theme in real everyday site and theme builds, so time to get hacking ;)
There were quite a few changes from beta1:
- Google fonts got a total overhaul. I was never really happy with it so when it was suggested we use a text field and allow users to just paste in the font name and make a few settings I jumped on it. Its now more flexible, faster and requires far less maintenance, and you are not held to the list the theme maintains, use any font the moment it gets released on Google. Its a win win and while a little harder to use, its just a lot better. #1534416: Use text input instead of select for Google fonts option
- Stylesheet load failure warning system. This was built to ease migration and deployment issues for large sites using GIT or other VCS that migrate on a daily basis from dev to staging etc but do not version control the files directory. This warnings tell the admin the theme settings must be re-saved to regenerate the CSS files: #1543990: Set message if generated files are missing, document file generation
- Old generated files are now removed, instead of saving them all.Read more
With the alphas running nearly two weeks now and only niggly issues with undefined variables and few oversight type issues cropping up we are good to push into beta testing. This release holds several fixes from issues found in alpha5 namely:
- undefined variable in site name site name heading settings
- cleaned up lots of documentation, many improvements
- other small fixes and improvements
On-wards and upwards!
- adds Unset CSS extension, themers can now easily unset any core, contrib module or library CSS file from the UI or use info file declarations.
- improve many docblock comments and add new comments for developers
- improve hook_css_alter() implementation for the Unset CSS feature
Note this is quite likely to be the last alpha, the code is coming very stable now, unless we hit any snags this will be it, next round will be into a beta or even strait into an RC. Its getting very close.
Fixes issues with fonts as reported here: http://drupal.org/node/1518510
- Improves cache handling for the Plugins system to speed up admin operations.
- Adds new feature for wrapping panels layouts when used in Display suite nodes, see http://drupal.org/node/1514216
- Adds new documentation to many functions, improved documentation for most functions already documented.
Ops, the alpha1 release did not include some scope fixes for global variables, so you will get a fatal error for an undefined function. Please see the notes for alpha1.
Initial stable release of 7.x-3.x
This is a major upgrade of the base theme will almost every line of code rewritten and many new features for site builders, theme developers and those hard core PHP developers out there using this framework.
Please see the Project page, there is a brief run down there of the main features and changes, also check the issue queue, there are a couple of exisiting issues (mainly tasks) but I envision there will be some bugs and other issues that will crop up in the next weeks or so prior to a full stable release.
None of the existing sub-themes have been update to work with this, but for the most part should work, see below.

This is the second maintenance release for Adaptivetheme 7.x-2.x, it includes some important bug fixes in particular for responsive design in older versions of Internet Explorer:
Major bugs for IE:
- move respond.js to the footer to avoid IE8 crashing when an image is set to the body or html element
- disable flexible images for IE8 and below, it can cause images to be invisible
- remove forum png and tiling bug (since core now has the right images)
- clean up comments and generally tidy things in the CSS
There are no new features in this release - the 7.x-2.x branch should be considered stable and feature complete. All new features go to the 7.x-3.x branch and back-ported where appropriate and where it does not affect any existing 7.x-2.x user.
Daily snapshot for the 7.x-3.x series, with responsive Panels and Gpanels layouts baked in.
Lots of small bug fixes we have unearthed over the past couple of weeks - the initial code has proven to be very stable with mostly small niggly issues with contrib modules and a small number of actual bugs.
Overall I have made the theme cleaner and more consistent especially in regards to the CSS in the sub-theme and big improvements to the admin theme. If you are using or planning to use Gmap or Getlocations modules you need to upgrade. Otherwise if you are not having any issues then you can safely stick with 7.x-2.0, there is nothing critical about this release.
Full backwards compatibility with all 7.x-2.x sub-themes is maintained, you can safely update to this version of the base theme without having to change anything in your sub-themes.
- meta viewport syntax, incorrectly used a semi-colon, changed to comma
- title prefix and suffix vars moved outside of conditional statements, so contextual links always print
- added fix for Gmap and Getlocations modules which choked on max-width 100% for images
- removed grddl profile, no longer required for RDFa
- removed doctype swtich, no longer required for RDFa
- moved print head above hard coded meta tags, so charset is set earlier
- fixed hidden date/time in admin theme
- cleanup CSS in admin theme, add back padding for a browser chrome buffer
Adaptivetheme 7.x-2.0 is out!
In short this new version brings in a slew of new features including mobile device support with media queries and configurable layouts for these devices, much improved back-end performance, improved UX and usability, we've made it easier and faster to complete routine theme building tasks to save us (and you) time and cost when building new themes.
We've also improved the accessibility features in the theme, better body class handling and more options for body classes. We have made some very minor adjustments to the markup - namely put a wrapper on breadcrumbs and moved the user picture inside the article and comment wrappers respectively, other than that we did not touch the markup.
The admin theme has had a major make over and now for the first time we have been able to work around Drupal's inherent bugs and you can actually use the admin theme for real! Amazing! And it looks great as well.
Of course the big feature in AT 7.x-2.0 is the layout engine with mobile device support - we really hope you like this, it took a hell of a lot of development and we're really quite chuffed with it - we'll be working hard on documentation this week and putting some other nice freebies out there, such as Footheme.Read more
