Divi is the most successful WordPress theme of Elegant Themes Club and the team is working to make it even better. Divi 3.0 is scheduled to release on September 7, 2016 (Yes, the date conflicts with iPhone 7 launch by Apple) with new features. Before the release of this version, Elegant Themes team started a 100 days Divi Marathon before the release of Divi 3.0 where the team is releasing some helpful resources such as Divi extensions and libraries to help the Divi community. This marathon will run till September 7, the release date of Divi 3.0.
Major Features expected in Divi 3.0
- Front-end Visual Editor inside Divi Builder
- Better UI and More Libraries
- Cool Ready Extensions to scale Divi
Frontend Editor inside Divi Builder
In a recent article, Divi team published a sneak peek of the new Divi Builder where one can see how easy it is to change font or add content on front-end.
Better UI and More Libraries
Divi comes with loaded libraries which are nothing but a pre-designed layouts. For example, if you are planning to make a product launch website, you can pick such design from the library and start editing the same. The library layout will have all the sections already added, you can go and edit the sections by adding or removing one. With Divi 3.0, it is expected that we will get more ready designs under the library option and also a complete package for different categories like construction sites, photography sites, corporate sites, creative agency sites etc.
With Divi Marathon, the team has already started releasing Divi extensions to make Divi even better. For example, the login screen customization can be done with the Divi Login extension which allows you to put your own logo on the login page. With Divi 3.0, we can have a separate page where premium customers can download the ready extensions without paying any extra charges.

Well, if you have an active subscription of Elegant Themes membership, you will be eligible for the upgrade without paying any extra charges. Put the license key in Divi setting page and the theme will be auto updated from the dashboard. If you don’t have Divi or Elegant Themes membership yet, I strongly recommend to purchase the membership using this link.
