  1. Hi Everyone,
    I was just wondering about the latest thematic version 0.9.8, and had a quick question:

    I understand you can get it from here:

    Which is fine and dandy, Ive been using it for a while, though Ive just realised today that in Wordpress its called version

    I did a fresh download today, it downloads a file called

    Is this the correct version or am I using the previous.

    Any help you can give is greatly appreaciated.

    I have up till now avoided getting the SVN copy as I didnt want anything too buggy, but it seems that for what Im working on 0.9.8 would be really handy.

    Thanks Chaps.

  2. the latest stable release available at that link is not the most cutting edge SVN version... which is rev842. i think that they didn't change the version # in style.css b/c when they release an official 0.9.8 to the repo the version compare wouldn't trigger an upgrade? i'd stick w/ the latest dev release.

  3. Ah I see. Thanks for the help. I thought I was going mad.

    Im interested to play around with the SVN versions but never seem to have the time.

    The version of Thematic that is currently in the wordpress repo is

    The next version will be 0.9.8, but before it is released that link provides a development release for download. One can say it is in a between state, not but not yet fully 0.9.8. The development version is named from the SVN revision, i.e. rev756.

    It is true that sometimes the latest SVN can be in a broken state, and that's why Chris put that link up so people can download a version that is stable enough for use. But a lot of development has happened recently in the SVN and he has not yet updated the link. The version number in the SVN files has been bumped to 0.9.8 and it's on the verge of getting submitted to the wordpress repo so I would say it is stable enough to use. The latest revision as of writing is 842, and if you know how to get the latest version from SVN, I think you can do that without too much worry. There are some things that you can take advantage of there. I think for example the theme options that have been updated to use the Settings API is not in rev756, but in rev842.

    It has been tested a bit, but if you do happen to find any bugs or unexpected behaviour, please report it at the googlecode site so it can be fixed as soon as possible.

    In short, from older to newer: - the version
    rev756 - the development release currently available at
    rev842 - the latest and greatest soon-to-be-0.9.8 in the SVN

    EDIT - hah Helga beat me to it :)
