    Universal Theme has new templates, new styles, over 1100 icons, and “Live Template” options
  4. Page Designer
    Page Designer is even easier adding a component view and the ability to view two panes at once including drag-and-drop between the panes!
  5. Calendars
    Calendars now allow JavaScript customization and now INCLUDE end dates
