We today with a great pride announce the launch of Swift v7 beta. Swift went through lot of changes to keep up with the modern trends, Increase in Screen sizes and the number of mobile users.

It’s a beast, a beautiful one

You will love using it, your website visitors will love you and thank you for using such a beautiful and reader friendly theme.

One of the major complaint with Swift was the default typography, many of you found it boring. We are addressing this issue in a manner you have never seen in any theme before.

The major changes to Swift are …

#1 Font Stacks

You can now with one click change the typography of your blog. You have option to choose from 5 different typography presets. More will be added in time.

#2 Custom Slider

You can now replace the posts slider with a custom slider. Show case your products, services or even add an option form.

#3 Responsive Design

Though the responsive design we have in v6 is better than any other them out there, it wasn’t upto our standards. So we re did the whole responsive part to bring you aleaner and meaner responsive layout. Responsive ads let you show different ads for users on desktops+tablets and mobiles. Swift will also serve appropriately sized images ( Responsive Images ) for mobiles and tablets so they don’t appear scaled or pixelated. Responsive Ad Management

#4 Airy Layout

This is my(Satish Gandham) favorite. I always loved designs with lot of white space, I enjoyed reading content on them. Swift was limited by the grid we were using, so could not have lot of white space. But not anymore, this time I tweaked the grid to let you choose as much white space as you want :) This combined with font stacks will give you the most beautiful and readable design ever. Your competition will envy you :)

#5 Color Palettes

We are introducing color palettes in this version. You can now assign colour schemes to categories when using magazine layout and help your readers easily identify the categories they are interested in. Again the first of its kind in any WordPress theme.

Other changes and improvements to Swift are..

  • We replaced the current color picker with Spectrum, which allows you to choosetransparent backgrounds.
  • Option to add social media icons in header.
  • New ads widget to show page/post specific ads.
  • We are going flat with buttons and other 3d things in the theme.
  • Replacing all icons with fontawesome.
  • Added icons to comments form.
  • New options page design ( Will make it responsive in coming days).

Some deletions..

In the final stable release we will get rid of some features which no longer make sense.

  • Social buttons in shortcodes.
  • The two new paper layouts we have now. They will be replaced by new layouts that are responsive in the coming weeks.

In coming weeks

v7 development is not complete yet, still there are lot of things that will be added. Here is a short list of whats to come

  • Corporate mode, that removes any references to comments, rss and anything that might make it look like a blog.
  • Retina support.
  • New navigation style, like the one we have on http://SwiftThemes.Com
  • Sticky post nav.
  • Responsive magazine layout.
  • It’s fresh out of development, haven’t optimized it aggressively. Will work on it.

If you come this far you definitely love Swift, thank you :)

We are redesigning SwiftThemes.Com, we will make it live along with the launch of the stable version of v7.

  2. Hi Satish,

    great theme as usual.
    I am just wondering if there is a particular reason why you are putting the text ‘permalink to %s’ into the full-width-slider.php instead of just “%”.
    I think as you also mention SEO performances, using the suffix “permalink to” it will create redundancy of “Permalink to” into the alt tag of the links of the slider.
    Regards, Donald

  3. I would like to see the Retina mode able to work with other high pixel density displays like 11″ and 13″ 1080p notebook screens and 24″ 4K monitors.

    Similarly, the Swift themes could come up with a theme that works well with 10′ TV-screen viewing. Think of things like smart TVs, PS3 or Freebox Révolution with integral Web browsers.

  4. I am trying Swift theme V7 on my new blog and its awesome.. There are few issues I think due to javascript but will wait for final version.
