WordPress 3.0 Thelonious

Today brings the release of WordPress 3.0 and along with it, the long-overdue new default theme, Twenty Ten. When Matt asked me to design the new theme at the beginning of this year, I was excited by the possibilities but I knew I was out of my league. Fortunately, we quickly found our ally in Ian Stewart, whose Kirby theme seemed like a great starting point for what Twenty Ten should be. By February, I was ready to commit the code to trunk. That was a humbling day, as I watched the WordPress community make quick work out of correcting and perfecting our code. Now that the theme has reached 1.0, the really interesting part for me begins, as I get to see Twenty Ten reshaped to fit thousands of new web sites. If you haven’t seen it yet, check out WordPress 3.0’s coming out video below.

Speaking of customizing: this blog is now running Twenty Ten as well. If you’d like to borrow my Custom CSS for your Twenty Ten blog, check it out here.
