What's New in Version 2.5

This is our biggest update since Highland 2. With new features, upgraded features and a refreshed UI, virtually no area was left untouched. We checked off quite a bit of the feature roadmap.

Check for consistency and avoid repetition.

For Pro users, our new interactive theme builder is just the thing to customize Highland's interface to your liking. Install your new theme with a click, or share it with others.
