I’m pretty keen (along with many others it seems) to see what this version of Thesis will do. One of the things I’m most excited about is the ability to drag/drop your website’s page structure AND have semantic HTML come out on the front end. There have been some drag/drop themes and tools around, but I’ve always been dissatisfied with the results as far as HTML goes. I’m sure that Chris, with his appreciation of standards & semantics, has that covered.
I have no idea what this means for the Thesis development space. There has been a huge market for those more CSS and PHP savvy than the rest to customise the heck out of Thesis for clients. That market may still be there, same as ever, or it might have to shift a bit. Either way, I’m sure we’ll come up with something bril! WATCH THIS SPACE.
There seems to be a lot of people who are confused about their current license… Anyone with a license will be able to download Thesis 2.0. Folks with a development license will be able to get some extra goodies (no word on what those are yet).
The prices will be going up, so if you’re a diehard fan and really want those extra goodies, but only have a personal license, you can upgrade from a personal license to the developer license now at the current price and get the extras along with Thesis 2.0 when they’re released, or you can wait to see what they are and upgrade later at the increased price.
If you’ve been on the fence, now looks like a good time to get Thesis.
