Ubertheme 2016 Recap: Top 5 Magento 2 Extension Updates

[M2] UB Data Migration Pro 3.0.4
This maintenance release fixes for specific special database migration cases and compatibility testing with the latest Magento 2.1.3. Our team worked hard on a complete overhaul -- version 3 release in October and all releases since. We are really excited about bringing this big release to you in 2016 and happy to see the Pro version has made it easy for many developers to migrate database from Magento 1 to Magento 2 with ease, like here and here.

See the changelog.

[M2] UB Instant Layered Navigation 1.0.2 Beta
This extension now comes with new infinite loading options, improved product listing with resized product images. We also proceeded compatibility testing with Magento 2.1.3 and squashed bugs for a more stable experience. Many thoughts and hours of work have gone into this brand new Magento 2 extension which is a different approach from the existing Magento layered navigation alternatives. Above all, it’s a truly instant filter solution for your Magento 2 store.

See the changelog.

[M2] UB Mega Menu 1.0.4
This maintenance release fixes all reported bugs and auto-sync improvements to make it easier to build more powerful Magento 2 menu. For any change in categories, it will be automatically synced to the associated menu item (with type is category). It also comes with handy enhancement to import categories and subcategories recursively.

See the changelog.

[M2] UB Content Slider 1.0.9
This release and earlier versions of the extension deliver various improvements and bug fixes, including fine-tuning to submit to marketplace. Not only compatibility update with the latest Magento 2.1.3, we keep a close eye to every user’s feedbacks and we worked hard to improve the extension.

See the changelog.

We got UB Quick View listed on new Magento 2 marketplace this year in addition to UB Mega Menu and UB Content Slider. We dedicate time to maintain regular updates and bug fixes for this extension since Magento 2.1.0 to the current latest Magento 2.1.3.
