I can't tell from this post whether this ipad portrait issue is going to get fixed or not ?
In addition, Im wondering why the option to just take control over the mobile version via mobile menu, widgets/modules, etc has been completely taken away. I understand that, in theory, a responsive template/theme would alleviate the need, but many times making a mobile friendly version of a site is more than just a system of auto-shrinking images, and sliding widget positions. You need more control over how the final display and content actually is for a mobile phone.
Im hoping that this "responsive" theme making (that completely takes away the option to assign different content altogether for mobile) is NOT the future of yootheme themes. I would like the option to not only turn off the responsive, but also then fall back to the previous ability to assign different content to menus, pages, widgets etc for mobile.
