Now that we survived another apocalypse and are about to celebrate the holiday season with our closest ones, let’s talk a little bit about the future of required+ Foundation and our plans for version 1.1.0, supposed to power your site February 2013.
Here is a brief overview on what we plan to add in version 1.1.0 coming in February 2013:
required+ Foundation & Starter – the themes
We’ve been told that Foundation 4 might be ready in January 2013 – this would be awesome and of course we will try to integrate it asap, but there is more stuff planned for version 1.1.0 – for both the parent and starter child theme.
As you might know already Foundation uses SCSS internally and you can download a SCSS version as a Compass Gem. We are currently working on a smooth integration of SCSS in required+ Foundation to give you more power and make you faster in styling your theme with SCSS. The solution we are implementing is based on the awesome wp-sass by Robert O’Rourke.
As we are from the German speaking part of Switzerland and some of us from Germany, most of our sites need to have a German translation of the theme. For version 1.1.0 required+ Foundation and required+ Starter offers a complete German translation. So in the future, if your site is in German you simply add the following line to your
wp-config.php file and all the text strings in the theme will be translated:
required+ Themes – this website
As we plan to release more tutorials regarding WordPress and the required+ Themes every two weeks next year, we will start to link the appropriate ones to the matching pages in the docs through WordPress built-in tags for your convenience.

Well that’s it for the moment, have a save holiday season with your loved ones!
