Thematic release notes

Thematic is now available from the WordPress theme repository. This release was focusing on improving the internationalization and localization, with a complete string overhaul and updated pot-file. The introduction of glotpress to manage translations have been a success, and several languages have already been updated and are included in this release. Many languages still need updating though, so if you speak a language where the translation is incomplete we would be happy if you helped us with translating.

WPML logoAlso, Thematic is now fully compatible with WPML multilingual plugin! They worked well together already before, but this release includes a XML config file for even better integration.

Other new things are that the sample child theme have been updated to include sample code for custom headers and background.

And that the functions thematic_body_class() and thematic_post_class() have been moved/removed to filtering the core filters body_class and post_class respectively. Adding the following code to your child theme will enable Thematic’s classes to filter into the body_class() and post_class() output.


There are some more minor changes and bugfixes too, full changelog is in the readme file. Get the latest version from the WordPress theme repository.

Report any bugs you find on the github issue tracker and head over to the forums if you are having any trouble with upgrading.
