18.0 Release notes

:wave: Hello Builders! Version 18.0 of the Airkit platform focuses on improving the builder’s experience with full application templates from KitCloud and a more streamlined Journey modeling experience.

There are major new features available such as App API support for the easiest and most flexible way to start or augment a session from a HTTP Post.

Additionally we’ve introduced Custom Types that mirror JSON schemas for variables that allow for type-ahead and more to make building applications with deep form and data models easier than ever
