Twenty Twelve theme added to WordPress 3.4-alpha

WordPress 3.4 will have a brand new theme in it – Twenty Twelve.

The initial version of which, has just been added to the development version of WordPress. The commit message explains the philosophy of Twenty Twelve:

Initial import of the Twenty Twelve theme, by Drew Strojny. This time around we’re trying something different than the previous twenty-something themes, a much more minimalist approach that affords easy use as a CMS in addition to being blog-forward. More information will be on wpdevel soon. Props drewstrojny and lancewillett.

I have set up a Twenty Twelve Demo Site here:

I’m very interested to see how it pans out!

Update 7/2/2012: The Twenty Twelve Development Team has posted an update:

This is not yet a fully working theme — we’ll be adding in more features and lots of missing styles over the next 3–4 weeks. Including post formats, comments, archives and page templates, more in-post styling, and a nav menu rework so the main content comes ahead of the navigation.

Update 2/3/2012: The Twenty Twelve theme has been delayed, and will no longer be part of WordPress 3.4. It will be in WordPress 3.5 (scheduled for later in 2012).

Time For Change (of theme)

Today Automattic released the brand new Duster WordPress Theme.

Being a technical guy, I typically don’t care much for WordPress themes.

However I haven’t been happy with how my website has been looking so I decided to give it a try.

The showcase template is really cool (I’m using it for the home page), and I also really like the simplistic layout of the individual post and archive pages.

Anyway, enough talking about pretty things. Time to dig back into some code!
