3. Reapply your customizations
If you have made modifications to your theme files (for example your Custom CSS), you need to reapply them to the new version. We recommend using a child theme to avoid this step. If you are an advanced user, you can see the changelog.txt above or in the theme folder to only update the updated files via FTP.
We continue improving it and bug fixes, so that it works better with all sites.
