This topic documents all of the changes made to Gallery templates.

Over time, new features and enhancements may be made to templates by Brightcove. Brightcove will not push major template updates out to exiting sites. Publishers are responsible for upgrading their sites to use new templates and then for testing sites before publishing. For information on updating a Gallery site to use a new template version, see Updating Gallery Templates.

Changes made to templates are documented as part of the template version release notes. Release notes are available for the following templates:
