Version 7.6 release
To be released beginning on November 14, 2019. The release will be published in batches over the space of several days to ensure stability. Consequently, some changes may not appear on your account until after the release date.
The Version 7.6 release includes the following changes and enhancements.
New email editor
Using the new email editor, you can design complex emails more easily, with a more consistent and predictable appearance across different platforms, devices, and email readers.
The new email editor is currently only available when designing manual emails and manual email templates. The legacy email editor is still being used for event emails and automatic emails such as membership emails, invoices, and receipts.
Designing an email with the new email editor is like using building blocks: you stack different kinds of layouts on top of each other to form the structure of your message.
Then, you add your content by inserting different gadgets into the various cells within your structure.
To add content to your email message, you drag and drop gadgets where you want them to appear. There are different types of gadgets for different types of content. For example, if you want to add a divider to your message, drag the divider gadget from the Gadgets panel and drop it where you want it to appear.

Support for Internet Explorer
Microsoft will be dropping support for Internet Explorer 10 by the end of the year, and will not be updating the current version, Internet Explorer 11.
