I'm very excited to report that Doodlekit will be rolling out a new version of its free website builder first quarter of 2013 (early spring). This has been a long road in the making. Three years of coding has finally come to a close. To give you an idea of the extent of this release, the first release of Doodlekit (the one we use now) took us a year and a half to build from scratch. This new release is built on top of that one, and it took twice as long. Yeah... lots of new stuff, lots of changes ;).
The largest change is the new templating system. Not only will Doodlekit offer hundreds of new templates from its new template library, but you will have to option to create your own templates from scratch as well. You will be able to edit any template and make it into your own. Like your friends Doodlekit template? No problem - they can share their template with you :).
Other great new tools and upgrades include: Header Banner and Header Logo Slideshows, lots of layout options with sidebars and footerbars, hundreds of fonts, custom icons, image gallery pages, super powerful Search Engine Tools, custom colorizing, new border tools, shades, shadows, transparencies, rounded corners, etc.
Lots of new and cool stuff. Can't wait for it to roll out!
