Important Update Announcement
Right after updating the theme to version 1.6.13, you should see there's a new update available for the Get Bowtied Tools plugin, right under the Plugins section. The plugin was fully rewritten to make the installation and the maintenance of the theme easier.
What should you do?
After updating the plugin, you'll get an error saying it was deactivated, and that's because it was fully rewritten and WordPress considers it a different plugin now. You just need to activate it and you're good to go. Watch a quick video walkthrough.

There's a New Plugin in Town
After updating the theme to 2.2.1, a notification will show up on your administration dashboard screen inviting you to install a new plugin called: Get Bowtied Tools. This is a small plugin that handles the automatic theme updates, your products key and the demo content installer. Part of making the theme lighter and faster was to move this back-end functionality outside the theme, into a plugin. So, just go ahead and install the plugin as well after updating the theme and stay worry free, nothing changes as far as you should be concerned as a site administrator.
As usual, various styling fixes and improvements were made for consistency and compatibility purposes across browsers and devices. Here are a few notable improvementes included with this update:

Announcement regarding Slider Revolution
— June 14, 2016
After the following update, estimated June 15 2016, the theme's package will no longer include the Slider Revolution plugin.
We stopped using it as part of the theme's demo for more than 6 months now, due to its complexity. In the last year the plugin grew into something much bigger with different purposes that went beyond creating sliders and beside making the theme heavier we've also received negative feedback regarding its complexity.
We will continue however to provide future updates to all existing customers that were promised with the plugin at the time of purchase via our support system: https://my.getbowtied.com
