It’s been awhile, haven’t it?
First of all, a quick status update on the Notes themes.
- Notes Blog hits 1.0 in a little bit, I’m working on this one right now actually. It might or might not be released on wordpress.org this year, but you’ll be able to download it soon enough at least.
- Notes Mag won’t get any love until next year. Too much work, sorry about that.
- All other Notes projects are on hold.
That didn’t sound too good, did it? Don’t worry, it’s not so bad.
You see, as it turns out a lot of people are building cool sites on Notes Blog, and I’m questioning the need for some of the planned things because of this. In fact, I’m not even sure that Notes Mag should be a stand-alone theme, maybe it’ll end up as settings for Notes Blog or as a child theme.
Moving on, there are some changes due to notesblog.com as well. It will be relaunched as more of a landing page for the themes, along with quick links to resources and possibly a support forum if the need arise. The development cycles are so skewered right now, it feels a bit silly to have this thing in blog format. Support questions get buried and so on, better to blog about WordPress some other way. So that’s happening, hopefully within a few weeks time.
Finally, I’ve got some nice child theme ideas lined up for Notes Blog. If there’s time you’ll get those to play with over the Holidays, but I might not be able to pull it off. The notesblog.com changes take precedence.
