As we said before, our target is to release 2 themes every month. We already have enough (rough) designs to discuss so i guess this is not the tough part. Today Sophocles got in out catalog and one more theme will be released by the end of October. That theme is Ithaca. A gaming news and reviews theme for WordPress. While Ithaca is still in the design phase, i thought i should let you know about it and also provide a homepage preview.
Sophocles is the 5th theme that will make it in our catalog. The theme is already in the testing phase and we plan to release it early next week. As with our previous themes, Sophocles will be available in xhtml and html5 versions both for WordPress and plain html including a newsletter template (html and Campaign Monitor versions). Some of the features of Sophocles include a custom homepage, full width and archive templates, our custom options panel, 3 awesome color schemes and a new tab that gives you the ability to control the background colors and images of your template.
