We’ve released OpenMenu Format v1.6 and with it some exciting new additions to OpenMenu and our complete menu platform.
Some things to note with this release:
- There is now going to be globally unique ids on menus, menu groups and menu items. This means items can be tracked across any systems using the OpenMenu Platform
- We added a language attribute to menus so you could now publish the same menu in any language. This was to further strengthen our commitment to a global menu standard
- There is a new tag for restaurants and that’s the ‘mobile‘ tag. This allows us to track and better support food trucks and food carts.
- We added a ‘private‘ attribute to OpenMenus so non-public restaurants/eating establishments (like a cafeteria) can use the OpenMenu Platform.
