Gantry 5 RC1 Released

The RocketTheme development team has been hard at work getting Gantry 5 ready for prime time. After months of work by our small team, the Gantry 5 release candidate is now available on Github.

In late 2009, the open source Gantry framework was initially released to the public. Before Gantry, we found ourselves having to perform a lot of repetitive steps while creating new templates. A lot of our time was spent hand-coding the same features each month. We needed something simpler, and our solution was Gantry.

This framework would not only help us create powerful and flexible Joomla templates and WordPress themes, but also to empower a growing community of Joomla and WordPress developers that would benefit from using a framework that was easy to understand, yet powerful enough to meet the needs of their clients.

Fast-forward to 2015, and Gantry 5 is set to redefine what a theme can do.
