Simplish version 2.4

Posted by – June 17, 2010

Simplish version 2.4 is here, hand-in-hand with the new WordPress 3.0.

First and foremost: This release is not compatible with earlier versions of WordPress. Use it only with WP3.0 and up.

Only minor refinements are apparent to the eye: You won’t see the word “Trackback” in the comments area anymore, and the former “Pages” list in the default sidebar is now labeled “Navigation” to accommodate the optional custom menu. Just beneath the surface, the theme now outputs HTML5 where once there was XHTML 1.0.

Highlighted Changes

  • HTML5 output
  • Support new custom menus
  • New CSS reset
  • Suppress the inline gallery style — remove a validation stumbling block
  • CSS updates for gallery styling, efficiency
  • Use automatic feed links for uniform & dynamic header metadata
  • Rewrite and modernize functions.php — better child theme override support
  • Replace/remove deprecated WordPress function calls

Check out the change log for a complete list.
