Gantry 5

Some news about Gantry 5 !

A Gantry 5.4.28 release was out on  March 11 2019. The latest update is December 12 2018.

Nothing special, but Gantry 5, always love it. It is so usufull for customization (development of dedicated particles :=)

They are on the road of Gantry version 5.5 compatible Joomla 4 - Thanks for developper

There's no existing build for 5.5 yet.: Version 5.5 minimum requirement could be:

  1. Common
      • Updated minimum requirement to PHP 5.5.9
  2. Joomla
      • Updated minimum requirement to Joomla! 3.8
  3. WordPress
      • Updated minimum requirement to WordPress 4.9
  4. Grav
      • Updated minimum requirement to Grav 1.5 and Admin 1.8


What's misssing with Gantry is really "online particle editor".

With current version, because particles are managed as modules, you need administration access to manage them. Not good for customer.
