First off, it’s been a wild ride since The Erudite was made a featured theme in the WordPress.org themes directory. It went from about 20 downloads a day to over 200! With it has come an increase in bug reports and a some help with more translations. I hope that all of these downloads means that some kickass writing is being done.
The Erudite 2.6.1 is a maintenance release packing a lot of power for such a little increment. It includes:
- Better support for the upcoming WP 3.0’s custom menus. You can now explicitly set a menu as your “Header Menu”.
- Properly internationalized some strings that weren’t previously. If you’re a translator, update to the newest the-erudite.pot in the translations/ directory.
- Removed previous use of get_the_modified_author() in favour of get_the_author(). I have no idea why I thought the former was ever a useful idea.
- Added a Swedish translation. Props Fredrik.
EDIT: I neglected to add the Norwegian translation to 2.6.1, so 2.6.2 includes that. Thanks Rune!
