We are pleased to announce the release of the 3.1 version of Xibo. The codename for this version is “Holmes”. This is a feature update to 3.0, with improvements to the layout editing experience, a menu board component, Pixabay integration and lots of usability improvements.
Please note: The menu board component is a feature preview whilst we continue to make improvements.
17P/Holmes is a periodic comet with an orbital period of 6.88a (Julian years). Edwin Holmes (an amateur British astronomer) discovered the comet on November 6, 1892. It's last closest approach to the sun was in February 2021 and is on it's way back in January 2028.
