Few hours ago, Chris announced the Thesis 1.8.5 and shared some exciting news about Thesis 2.0!
Most of the issues that have been reported by users last week, is covered in the latest version of thesis.
Thesis 1.8.5 is working nicely with the new WP Live Preview function. I’ve already upgraded this blog and is running smoothly on 1.8.5 version.
Let’s dive in and see what Thesis 1.8.5 brings new to the table.
- Fixed theme preview in WordPress 3.4 for normal and multisite installations
- Improved multisite post thumbnail handling on a wider variety of server setups
layout.csserror message in multisite that appeared (wrongly) due to certain user permissions
- Updated the
authormicroformat in post bylines so it passes the Google Rich Snippet Tool without any warnings
- Basic HTML tags are now allowed inside widget titles, so you have more presentational flexibility in those areas
- In previous versions, if you added a nav menu via a widget, it would display horizontally like the default nav menu. Now, menus added via widgets will display just like a normal vertical list of links, so you won’t have to waste time undoing undesirable styles.
By upgrading to Thesis 1.8.5, you’ll be able to ensure that your image captions will display just as they always have.
I’m a big fan of thesis and have been using it on few of my blogs including this one. So, it’s exciting to know that DIYThemes is finally releasing its over-hyped version 2.0!
Thesis 2.0 will be making it world debut someday in August. Here’s the excerpt from the official blog post -
We’ve got about 120 hours of development and testing left before the alpha (only available to DIYthemes staffers) will be ready. Based on experience, I think we’ll probably have another 60 hours of development on top of that plus a couple of weeks out in the wild before the beta is ready for release.
With that information in mind, I think Thesis 2 will probably make its world debut in August.
