RapidWeaver theme developers should take note that ExtraContent has been updated to slightly increase performance, especially when a theme has numerous ExtraContent areas. There is also a new version available that doesn’t require jQuery.
Only the scripts have been changed, there is no change in user experience or developer implementation. While these updates should make ExtraContent slightly faster, they are not critical updates and your existing scripts continue to function. Update at your convenience.
The ExtraContent Developer SDK is now hosted on github. This should allow for more collaboration and faster updates. Please feel free to collaborate.

Well that’s it for now. Enjoy.
