Last Week

Last week we released a fix-version for XP - 6.13.1!

We also improved our PWA Starter kit for XP, it will now pass a 100% audit with Lighthouse (Google’s new site speed tool). If that sparks some interest, don’t miss our “Build your first PWA” workshop in February.

We’re on the lookout for our next co-worker in Oslo. Are you the one? Or do you know the one? Let us know!

Contact us here in the forums or on our open Slack channels if you have any questions about us or Enonic XP.
