If you’ve been following -or a member of- ThesisAwesome.com, then probably you know that I haven’t released any new Skins for Thesis since a while. But, this doesn’t mean I am getting lazy, or I lost my interest in the project. Not at all, I am just waiting for the right moment since Thesis 2.0 is already in the market, and its first launch didn’t really went well.
Update: Good bye Thesis! I no longer develop for you!
Thesis 2.0 shipped with great functionality that has never been available for developers. Features that I’ve been dreaming of for a long time. Surprisingly, many people just didn’t get it, probably for the lack of imagination.
I got involved in the Thesis private testing group, which has been great experience. I had the chance to watch the framework enhanced in front of my eyes, and I became more confident of what I believe in.
With that being said, I can tell the reason why I haven’t developed much for Thesis 2 is simply because I know my members, and I know what pain this will cost them, so I advised them not to make the switch from Thesis 1.x to 2.x till I personally give them the green light.
By doing this, and because there is nothing wrong with the older stable version, I think I made a good decision for my members and clients.
In my personal opinion,
I consider Thesis 2 the most powerful WordPress Theme Framework on the planet (Today) and I think everyone should give it a go (on a test site).
I advise you to stick with the stable 1.8.5 version till Thesis 2.1 goes out of beta, so that you can enjoy a hassle free experience.
