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!
As always, you can download from the project page while waiting for it to show up in the themes directory.
Love this theme. LOVE. IT.
