Release notes describe changes, fixes, and additions to the Editions theme. Use this article to stay in the loop with Editions’ latest versions. Each version is listed below with the release date, version number, and changes included.
September 13th, 2021 - v11.0.0
- We added support for Shopify's Online Store 2.0 update, including:

When updating to an Online Store 2.0 compatible version, the Theme Updater App is only able to preserve global theme settings (e.g. Colors, Typography). Content such as homepage sections will need to be rebuilt. This is a one-time process that is required to align with new templating standards and maintain theme performance.
