Helix Ultimate revised release timeline

We have already released the alpha and beta versions of Helix Ultimate. We are feeling amazing after getting so much appreciation and words of inspirations from the user community. Many of our valued users tested our alpha and beta versions of Helix Ultimate and gave real time feedback regarding the product. Now it is our responsibility to honor their efforts and time. We have already started our marathon to make Helix Ultimate stable.

The release candidate of Helix Ultimate will arrive on January 25, 2018, and the stable version will be released on February 15, 2018.

Now we have an announcement to make. Many of our users and testers suggested some new features and also gave some valuable feedback regarding improvements of the product. That’s why we are going to take a little bit of time to release the stable version of Helix Ultimate. We will put a greater effort on making Helix Ultimate the product you wanted during this extended period of time. So, in return we are asking for your patience and cooperation. Helix Ultimate will rock just as we promised.

Amazing - it's so much better to take your time and get something rock solid.

A suggestion however, can you by default in the master.less file include a blank .less file for custom overrides?

@import 'mixins';
@import 'icomoon';
@import 'menu';
@import 'theme';
@import 'custom'; // custom.less that is empty, where we can add our own custom css without having...

From Helix3 to Helix Ultimate - unfortunately, but it will not be possible. Those are two different frameworks (engines).
---
SP Page Builder Pro will be supported by both Helix Ultimate and Helix3 - as long as possible.

HI:

Looking forward to the stable release of Helix.
In the meanwhile... Will you guys be updating tour commercial templates to work with Helix Ultimate? Or do they work with helix Ultimate as is? Or will the templates be left behind?

Keep up the good work. Best regards.
