Elementor release schedule explained
Elementor is committed to continually offering users the newest and best editing features in its Free and Pro versions. Releases arrive almost every two months, pushing Elementor to be one of the most advanced page builders. Elementor Free has plenty of great options that make designing pages easier than ever. At the same time, Elementor Pro takes it to the next level with extra goodies such as Theme Builder, Popup Builder, Loop Builder, Mega menu and more. Keeping tabs on Elementor’s release schedule can make sure you are always up-to-date with their cutting-edge features.
Elementor recently announced that from now on, release schedules for their Free and Pro Versions will be simultaneous. This means that going forward, version 3.8 for the Free and Pro Versions will release at the same time. And in exciting news for Elementor Cloud users, they will receive new releases a few weeks earlier than users of the no-Cloud version.
By opting in to be a beta tester, you can access the release weeks earlier than others just by going to Elementor’s Tools, Version Control tab on the WordPress backend. Having said this, you should only install beta versions of Elementor on a test or staging site. Never install it on a production website.
Elementor current version: What’s new in 3.11
New Loop Carousel – Pro feature
Elementor Pro 3.11 introduces the new Elementor Loop Carousel widget, making creating personalized and dynamic carousels of loop items for your website easier. With this feature, you can use Elementor’s in-place editing canvas to design the Main Item Template, then assign dynamic tags to content, images, or colors. Additionally, you can add any other widget using Elementor Theme Builder to personalize further and enhance your template design. Once you’ve achieved the desired look of your Elementor loop carousel, you can experiment with different types of transitions between slides and other settings without limiting yourself due to lack of customization options.
Copy & Paste Between Websites – Free feature
Elementor 3.11 has made it incredibly easy to copy and paste elements from one website to another. This can be done directly in Elementor Editor – right-click the element you wish to copy, select ‘Copy’ from the action menu, and then right-click again to choose ‘Paste from Another Site’.
At that point, you use CMD+V or CTRL+V, depending on your platform of choice, to copy and paste Elementor elements between websites instantly! Gone are the days of manually exporting a JSON file to transfer layouts between websites – Elementor makes it quicker and easier than ever.
Performance – Responsive Background Image Size – Free feature
Elementor makes choosing the right image size for your website easier than ever. From the Image widget, you can set different sizes per device to improve Elementor performance. When you use a background image, Elementor will set it to Full by default – however, on larger devices setting the image size to a smaller resolution might sacrifice quality for performance. Thankfully, this is an easy workaround that Elementor allows us to take advantage of.
Popup Builder – New Advanced Rule for Date and Time Range – Pro feature
Popup builders just got even better with this update! You can now use the new ‘date and time range’ feature in the Advanced Rules of a popup to automatically schedule when you’d like to display it. This means you no longer have to manually activate it or deactivate it once you’re done, taking the hassle out of running campaigns like Valentine’s Day – all you need to do is select your start and end date and determine which visitors should see it.
In addition, this makes managing multiple campaigns simpler as all you have to do set up rules for each one, meaning you don’t have to keep track of various dates and times for different campaigns. All in all, this time-saving new update gives even more control over customizing and automating popup campaigns.
UI update: renamed experiment page – Free feature
The experiment page within the Elementor 3.11 settings has been renamed to “Features”, to provide more clarity regarding the status of each feature. This new and improved page can help users decide when features should be activated or deactivated since some are in an early development stage while others are relatively stable and ready for use.
The location of this page remains unchanged, as it is still accessible from the main Elementor Settings – providing convenience and an intuitive way to control which elements of the website they want to experiment with.

Elementor release update 3.10: What’s new
Nested Elements -free feature
The Elementor 3.10 update includes the all-new Tabs widget as an alpha experiment to take the design of your website to a higher level. It will replace the existing version, and its container-based elements enable you to expand your design with unlimited possibilities.
With the new Tabs widget, you have control over the layout and positioning of tabs and titles and can also insert icons or titles for even more exciting design effects. Additionally, nested elements within each tab are enabled through Flexbox containers inside a main content container. So all types of sophisticated designs can now be easily implemented on your website!
Custom Units; styling enables you to choose any unit you desire, including CSS Math Functions – free feature
Designers will be thrilled with the font custom unit feature recently released by the Editor. Now, you can customize font size for any element more precisely than ever. Rather than having to choose from one of the standard measurement units such as PX, EM, REM, %, VW, or VH, you can now select the Custom option from a drop-down menu and utilize your choice of multiple measurement units as well as run calculations directly within the value input field.
This allows for greater accuracy and smarter design decisions to help your work look professional and supported on any device.
Full Website Kits, Templates, and Blocks based on containers – free feature
The Library team at Elementor has released an updated library full of Flexbox Container-based assets in response to the official marking of the Flexbox Container as a beta experiment.
Full website kits, page templates, and brand-new mini-shops (one-page ecommerce website kits) can be found within this library, giving you various options when working with the experiment. You can rest assured that your experience with these Full website kits and other resources will be productive and successful.
Furthermore, you will likely notice two major changes that have been made: they’re based on the container layout rather than the section-column layout.
Dynamic Due Date in Countdown Widget – Pro feature
The Countdown Widget provides a powerful tool, enabling you to boost conversion rates and encourage FOMO with its countdown feature. Leveraging the new dynamic tag control for the due date increases your ability to optimize this feature significantly.
Now, WordPress custom fields and those from other platforms such as ACF and PODS can be used to dynamically populate the countdown’s due date, meaning that you can instantly update your countdown across multiple pages in one simple action. This allows for powerful customization of countdowns and is a great way to draw attention from users and drive up conversions.
Disable Google Fonts
Google fonts are a popular library for online fonts, but it could put you at risk of violating GDPR and privacy regulations. Elementor makes it easy to avoid this risk by allowing you to disable Google fonts from your website in one click.
After disabling the fonts, only seven fonts are available in the Editor. If you’ve used google fonts on your website before, they will all be reset to the remaining local font choices. Elementor Pro users have an additional layer of protection; they can continue using locally hosted fonts with the Custom Fonts feature. With such convenience and security, more people take advantage of Elementor’s google fonts options daily.
