Astra theme update 3.1, what's new in this version?

There are two major changes and improvements in the latest version of Astra. First of all, the speed has been improved even further. While Astra is already one of the fastest WordPress themes. They achieved this by only loading CSS when needed. Removing old CSS that browsers already supported by default. And by cleaning up HTML and javascript. As a result, load times have become much shorter than before. The improvements are not only applied on the front end of the site, but also on the back end in WordPress' Customizer. This reduces the loading time for both your visitors and yourself.

The second big thing that has changed in this update is the refresh and expansion of the header and footer of the website in the theme. We all know that the header of a website is important to have in order. It's where your visitors navigate, and it can invite them to read on or prompt them to take action. That's why the new Astra header offers more options. The footer of a website is also important. This is where customers or visitors can contact you and take further action.
