With barely any time to catch breath from Genesis Camp, This Week in Genesis #13 rolls around with another bumper update (the credit of course all to you, the hard working and talented Genesis community).
This week sees Genesis 2.2 agonisingly close to arrival (with some fantastic accessibility improvements), new themes from some of your favourite authors, plus a lot of goings on with Rainmaker.
Genesis 2.2, the next major release of the Genesis Framework, edged a little bit closer to release this week with the Release Candidate (close to launch version) of the 2.2 update now available meaning that developers and regular users can test 2.2 on their website.
#GenesisWP 2.2 Release Candidate is now available via the Genesis Beta Tester plugin. Probably last chance to test before final release.

And Rian Rietveld, wrote up an extremely comprehensive summary of the accessibility changes and improvements you can expect to find in it (also showing just how much work has gone into this update).

The popular Genesis eNews Extended plugin was updated. If you’ve updated it shouldn’t have any impact on how your email signups actually work but you might just want to double check the styling (for what it’s worth, I’ve updated on several sites – including this one – without any styling tweaks needed).
Despite the jump to 2.0, today’s #GenesisWP eNews Extended update is actually pretty minor, but COULD impact styling.
