Summer has ended 🥲 but there's one thing that we're quite excited about: the release of  Abyssale version 1.11 - Grapes edition! 🍇

What's new:

We've been quite busy this summer and a lot of good changes are happening @Abyssale! Our team is growing at a steady pace and you should hear more news about this in our Facebook community group.

Our focus for this v1.11 was mainly around improving the Abyssale template builder by adding new features and components to it!

New builder components!

As we've stated in our previous changelog "Creating templates on Abyssale should be intuitive!" This is why we'll keep adding new features & components to the template builder!

For this v1.11 we've essentially added illustrations components such as:

All these new components allow you to select specific illustrations or icons from those libraries. We've also added the possibility to customize their color (Does not work on Emojis for obvious reasons).

Text - Background color

You can now select a specific part of your text and add a background color to it!
What's great about this feature is that it allows you to dynamically update your text content and associate a background color to a couple of words.

We've also added the possibility to update/change the content directly via API or the Abyssale Feed by inputting the value using our Markdown system.

Text - Diagonal Strikethrough

After deploying "text decorations" to the platform for the v1.10, some of you asked if we could also add  "diagonal strikethrough" to any texts... Today we can proudly say that it is now also available (If you'd also like to ask for specific features, the best way is to join our Facebook group 😉)!
