The last post is more than two months old, yet we didn’t step back. We kept releasing updated versions of required+ Foundation, including many great translations and bug fixes from contributors around the world and we gave Foundation 4 and SCSS some good thinking.
First of all, I owe you an apology for remaining silent on this blog for so long. My day job just took too much of my time and I didn’t have the time to write a tutorial or some other news. The good news though, we are almost done with required+ Foundation 1.1.0 and the huge upgrade to Foundation 4 and SCSS (no worries, vanilla CSS is still supported).

Hooray, the release candidates for both, the themes and the plugins are available on GitHub for you to play around with and get a feel of Foundation 4. You can download each piece using the links below:

How to use it
You might remember our roadmap for 1.1.0 and how we wanted to use wp-sass in the next release to enable SCSS, well over the course of developing 1.1.0, we ditched the wp-sass and choose to integrate SCSS the Foundation 4 way.
What about vanilla CSS?
As mentioned above we still support using good ol’ CSS, simply add your custom styles and overwrites to the
Few more things
Foundation 4 ditched IE8 support, but keeps supporting F3. We decided to keep supporting required+ Foundation prior 1.1 (using F3) too. This website needs an overhaul to reflect the changes once required+ Foundation 1.1 is out, please be patient or offer your help updating the site. Ohh I gave a talk about Developing for WordPress in March, you might find the presentation useful.
Special thanks to the wonderful people on GitHub, lending me a hand and some brainpower to bring Foundation to WordPress, namely gilkudik, jasonkendall, jprberlin and of course our team at required+ – thanks guys, you rock!
Please check out the RC versions, play around with them and send me some feedback, ask questions and let me know what you think.
