In their previous update, they added a new Display Presets feature which included the Top Bar preset. However, they quickly found out that their existing default themes didn’t work too well when people used them for the top or bottom bar. Now they improved the theme and settled on a clean, soft blue style similar to notification banners you see on many other websites.

Enhanced Close Button Shortcode

For some time now, they’ve had a Close Button shortcode that allows you to insert a clickable text into the popup that closes the popup when you click on it.

In version 1.11, they are enhancing that to allow you to use links and buttons within the popup as well as the optional ability to add a URL to take the visitor to if they click the close link.

In the popup editor they simplified the display settings of the Display Presets feature. Their next step in that direction is a new guided tour which will introduce a few of the concepts including their triggers, targeting, and display settings.
