We traditionally like to release our Joomla templates on the 1st of the month. However this month the team has been very stretched with Joomla 1.6 development, testing and release procedures. This combined with the short 28 day month and some 'new' things in the upcoming template release means that we won't be able to hit this self-imposed deadline.
We now have the 3rd slated for the release of the March template but this will include a Joomla 1.6 version of the template released along-side the Joomla 1.5 version. Hopefully things will settle down in March and we can get back to our regular release schedule.
One thing we just will not sacrifice is the quality of our releases, and this slight delay should provide us enough time to ensure that the new template receives the attention to detail and the level of testing that you guys expect.
Sounds great. By the way, is there plans to continue with K2 styling? I realize K2 for 1.6 is not available yet, but it would be nice to still have this for the 1.5 releases. Better yet, I wish RT would come out with their own CCK. Maybe a hybrid between Zoo and K2.
