1.2.4 July 23rd, 2015
A lot of LC users click the "Publish Changes" button often to make sure if something unexpected happens they don't lose the content they created. But when working on a live page ( visitors have access to it ) that's not something you'd want to do, you want to publish only when the page is finished.
That's where drafts come in. On the right of the "Publish Changes" button is a new button called "Save Draft". Clicking that will save your changes but not publish them ( not visible to visitors ).
When a draft is saved you can safely disable the editor. When you enable it again the changes will still be there.

With the free starters/blank theme you can build the header/footer with Live Composer as well. It's kind of a bigger feature so if you have any suggestions or thoughts please let us know on the forum.
If you're familiar with LC there's just a few things you need to know to get started:
- You can manage headers and footers in WP admin > Header/Footer
- You can set a default header and footer which will be used accross the website.
- If you want a non-default header or footer on a page you can set a specific one in the top right corner of the page edit screen.

1.0.6 ( October 29th, 2014 )
This update was mostly performance related. We will keep improving performance in upcoming updates as well.
Improvements ( builder perfomance )
- Improvement in the speed of displaying module options on bigger pages. Tested on a huge page ( 70 modules with non-default settings ) it was taking 7 seconds to display options after clicking to edit a module. Same action takes 2 seconds now. The speed will vary from installation to installation due to server, theme and other plugins but an improvement should be visible to everyone.
- Speed of displaying options on modules related to posts ( blog, projects, galleries... ) is improved in general, irreleavant of the size of the page.
New/Improvements ( page load performance )
- Added options ( WP admin > Live Composer > Performance ) to choose which subsets ( latin, cyrillic... ) for the fonts should be loaded. Make sure you set that to what you need, disabling what you do not need will improve the page load speed.

Ability for theme authors to override the LC dashboard updates feature until they test their theme with the latest version.
define( 'THEME_LC_VER', '184.108.40.206' );
If you set that in your theme's functions.php, when LC 220.127.116.11 is released it won't show up until you change it to 18.104.22.168 ( or greater ).
Live Composer is expanding it's influence, you can now create archive ( ex. category ) pages with it as well. In WP Admin > Live Composer > Archive Setting you can set which page should be used as the archive page. All the posts modules will automatically show the correct category when used on an archive page.
Best way to explain it is with an example. Let's say you use the text module with the same styling on multiple pages and you decide to change the styling. You'd need to change each of those text modules separately, which takes more time than it should. Not anymore, you can now apply presets to modules and then changes to one of those modules will automatically apply to all the other ones that uses that preset. You will find the presets options in each module under Styling > Presets.
Size of LC generated data
The size of the data generated by Live Composer ( all the info about modules on a page ) has been drastically reduced, up to 95% from what it used to be.
Live Composer wasn't fully translatable ( to be honest most of it wasn't translatable ), but that's fixed now, you can properly translate it to your language. Much of the code had to be changed in order to achieve this but it's worth it.
