Lots of updates!

The EventsFrame dev team has been busy held up in their developers grotto, and this week we are very happy to launch 4 new features:

Responsive tickets - tickets are now much more responsive to mobile view with the text and QR code sized better for smaller screens

Enhanced integrations - values relating to order are now included in the custom fields. This enables the event manager to setup receipts and/or invoices on their mail integration partner and sync across order value, tax amount and tax rate directly from EventsFrame.
