Our Magento themes have gone through lot of changes in terms of design, responsive layouts, features and complimentary extensions. 4-years seems long but time flies when the desire to improve is strong. If you look at our first Magento theme and our latest one, you can appreciate how the user demand and availability of new technologies have impacted our deliveries. Skim through our Magento themes showcase, clearly there is a design evolution here. Back in the days our Magento themes were basic and simple with typical 3-column-layout, and now our themes are sophisticated and lively than ever.

In this blog, we are going to look back at each year and review remarkable designs represented by our picked themes.

Yes! we did it right this time. Our Joomla templates (running T3v3 framework) now supports Right to left (RTL) language layouts. If you all remember we were the first to introduce native RTL support in Joomla templates via our T3v2 framework but it was a cumbersome process and hard work to release and maintain them, we eventually had to pause the RTL support, it was a hard decision then. For quite many months we have been working hard for the development and improvement of our T3 framework for Joomla! 2.5 / 3.0. Addition of Right to left layouts was one of the important feature and I am happy to announce that the feature is now available. RTL support in the latest T3 framework now uses the bootstrap RTL and is amazingly simple to use.
