Enjoy the Latest Bootstrap Version

This means you now get to enjoy all the latest features and functionalities of Bootstrap along with the incredible Helix Ultimate to build your dream site in Joomla. 

Check out their official documentation here to find out more about this latest Bootstrap.

New Grid Settings Added in Layout’s Column Options

Previously, the Grid setting in the Layout’s Column Options was limited to Large Desktop only. After this update, you now have the flexibility to select your Grid Setting for Extra Large Desktop too. Thus using proper Grid settings inside all columns lets you define different column structures for different devices separately.

Consequently, we have made updates to the Responsive settings in both Column and Row Options by adding "Hidden on Extra Large Desktop."

Miscellaneous Fixes

Time to check out some of the notable fixes that come packed with this update!

Previously, the Coming Soon page experienced glitches after setting the countdown time in languages other than English. However, this problem has been resolved in the current update. As reported by many of our users, the Custom Off-canvas feature had issues when no colors were specified. This should now work fine with the latest update. Previously, there was an issue where the featured image would not display when searching for a blog article. This issue has also been resolved now.

Please go through the changelog again to have a look at the full list of bug fixes and improvements made in this update.

Thanks for the update!
What about the PHP compatibility of this version? In the Documentatin Technical requirements, I see only "PHP 8" without specifying which PHP version. I see in the previous update changelog a reference to fixing an issue on PHP 8.1, but it is not really clear which is the maximum certified PHP version compatibility.
