UW Theme version 1.1.2 was released on February 2, 2018. A full change log of updates is listed in GitLab: https://git.doit.wisc.edu/uw-madison-digital-strategy/uw-theme/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md
The following are a few highlights from this recent update:
Post List is Left Aligned
Previously, Post Lists in one column layouts were aligning centered on the page. This recent fix has forced post lists to left align, creating a more natural and expected user experience.

Events Listed in Month View of Events Calendar
If you were utilizing the month view of the events calendar with multiple events on one day, you may have noticed that they were appearing in alphabetical order rather than chronological. The latest update to the UW Theme has corrected this issue. Multiple events in month view will now appear in the order based on the time they start and end.

Jump Links for Tabbed Content
The UW Theme developers have added helpful ID’s to tabs in Tabbed Content page elements to allow for deep linking/jump links directly to specific tabs. The ID’s are automatically assigned based on the name of the tab. To link to that tab, simply hover over it to see the tag’s ID.

Alt Text for Fac/Staff Bucky Badger Images
A WiscWeb user noted that the Bucky Badger image that appears in Faculty/Staff Lists when no other image is chosen was not displaying alt text. As alt text is vital for users reviewing a website with screen readers, we changed this in version 1.1.2 of the UW Theme. Alt text will now be assigned to Bucky Badger images in Faculty/Staff Lists based on the first and last name of the individual.
Minimum Image Requirements Added to Page Elements
With the new updates to the UW Theme, we’ve added minimum image requirement notes to page elements with images. The notes will appear in italicized font on page elements that involve uploading an image. Examples include the hero carousel, alternating content blocks, and image carousels.
