Version 1.0.0 - stable release, released 24.08.2020

The seventh release of MDB 5 and the first stable release. In this version, we focused on testing and confirming stability.

MDB 5 is stable and ready to use in production.

Our approach:

In MDB 5, we mostly use our own solutions, taking from Bootstrap only what is stable and tested.

Our goal was to use all the most popular and stable features of Bootstrap, but at the same time not to rely entirely on Bootstrap itself and build as many of our own solutions as possible.

Together with dozens of our beta testers and the most trusted customers, we have been testing MDB 5 for many months. To be absolutely sure of the stability, we released 4 Alpha and 2 Beta versions before announcing the stable version.

Thanks to this approach, we have control over the source code and we can guarantee its stability.

MDB 5 Pro is also released as a stable version.
