I would like to know what are the features We can expect from Genesis 1.9 and 2.0 versions ? When can we expect responsive menu in Genesis Framework ( for mobile ) ? and is there any link here where we can get details regarding on going developments and future plans of genesis ( like road map etc )November 17, 2012 at 6:08 am #410
We don't have any public page or link to send folks to as far as what's on the roadmap, but what I will say is that in Genesis 1.9 we've got new functions written for implementing Google Fonts as well as one for responsive design. (The latter will require support from the child theme, but we do have a new mobile menu option coming.) There are some other cool things coming in 1.9 such as Google Authorship profiles.
Another major thing is the updated design for the Genesis parent theme, which you can see here. This should be available shortly after WordPress 3.5 is released in December.
Genesis 2.0 will primarily include support for HTML5 elements and will most likely be a spring 2013 release. Hope this helps!

"There are some other cool things coming in 1.9 such as Google Authorship profiles."
Is this anything more innovative compared to the YOAST WordPress Plugin?
We've had great success using the YOAST SEO Plugin that has the Google Authorship already built in along with lots of other goodies...November 19, 2012 at 6:46 am #669
No, there's really not anything in 1.9 that's more innovative than what Joost put into his plugin. The functionality is really simple - in your edit user screen you place your Google Plus URL and then on any page/post that you create, the rel=author tag will show up in the head of your source code.

Brian, looking at the upcoming new Genesis Parent theme, I see it's the wider format, but I also see that in the Page Layouts - Sidebar-Content-Sidebar now places the narrow sidebar on the right and the wider sidebar on the left. Will there be a way to select to switch them back to the opposite positions? This has been a challenge I think for a lot of people in switching the sidebars back and forth. It would be nice to have this setting in the Genesis settings for us.

I think the
...is old news, which Yoast's plugin already resolves, for those who cant figure out how to add it to their theme, another way.
I'm more interested in issues related to the:
<code>Warning: Missing required field "updated".
Warning: Missing required hCard "author".</code>
...errors which continue to occur for people using Genesis, which have not been addressed by Yoast's plugin. These errors are not related to the rel=author tag. So I'm curious if this will be fixed, out of the box, with Genesis 1.9

I'm new to StudioPress and Genesis, but I like the features mentioned so far. Is there current support for rich snippets, or plans for them in the future releases? That's something useful for me.

I would suggest you drop SEO efforts for Genesis as other frameworks are doing. This is a very specialized field and most will go with the market leaders. The Author Rel is stale and is much better left to experts like YOAST. Having these in frameworks adds to confusion I think and more support requirements.

I too would like an answer to this please Brian.November 20, 2012 at 11:50 am #894
I noticed the 1152 grid system - have you abandoned the 1140 grid now?

Wow i just stumbled on this post. From the looks of the code on the live version, it seems #header and #footer-widgets is now full-width... very nice addition to easily add full width header & footer styling!
In a current build right now I had to move the header to genesis_before. Not the most efficient thing to do, but the style is necessary for this site.
I may wait until the new version is released to continue this build, since it seems like it could be any day now?
