Our latest Core release adds an image class to give your headshot photos some flair outside of our Profiles module. Next time you want to highlight a member of the Panther family, try out our round-media class, complete with blue, cyan and magenta borders.

The DigiComm team has also been working hard behind the scenes to improve Core’s accessibility and squash bugs, especially for our feed-based modules.

A big thanks to everyone sending reports to Your reports help us solve these specific issues and improve Core, one update at a time!
