What’s Next?

We asked for questions and what you really want to know is what is next for Perch. We have been referring to the next Perch release (2.4) as “Fix All The Things”. This release won’t particularly add new features but will double down on the basic content editing experience and address issues that we have seen in support. For more on that read our blog post, and let us know if you have workflow issues that might fall into this release.
