    Finally, the frustrated posts got the other lack of HTML5 thread locked.

    I must say, forum mods keep saying to contact support for answers but the only answer I have received from support is to watch the blog for new themes to arrive. At least now, we have some answers. This is based on the mod’s last reply:

    @nickthegeek

    “First, all existing themes are compatible with Genesis 2.0. This is something we worked very hard on. You can use any of the themes already released with Genesis 2.0

    Second, I know a lot of people are anxious for HTML5 themes. We are developing a whole slew of HTML5 themes. I’ve seen quite a few and I’m really impressed by them. I know that people want to see us drop 30 new themes out. That isn’t good for our business though. If we flood the market with new themes we create a huge supply but the demand remains constant and that causes the themes to be devalued by comparison. It is basic supply and demand. Please don’t expect us to make bad business choices. You wouldn’t want to do that to your self.

    Third, and finally, we know that people are anxious for more themes and so we are shooting for 1-2 themes a week for the next several weeks. This will help us to get the backlog of themes out the door without flooding the market, which is actually bad for everyone. While we cannot promise a fixed number of themes, expect to see regular updates. For example, Going Green just updated today”

    Let me address. Posting here is NOT a request for support. It is a place for your customers to vent since no one has been able to address HTML5 theme release dates.

    I thank you for your answer but I somehow do not think StudioPress is holding back completed HTML5 themes so you don’t flood the marketplace. And personally, I do not see how releasing a bundle of new themes will de-value your products. Is this your opinion or is this really what Studio Press thinks as a company? Your customers paid for these themes and want to use them, period.

    I look forward to more themes being released. It just would not make sense to start customizing a current theme when we are newly building out on Gen 2.

    I must not be alone here am I?

    It is a place for your customers to vent since no one has been able to address HTML5 theme release dates.

    That’s because the release dates are not yet known, or at least not been made public. I can address it and give you a date of 25th December if you wish, but that’s made up, and not what you’re looking for. Furthermore, consider how many (few) folks SP actually have to make all these conversions. It’s not going to be as many as you think.

    I somehow do not think StudioPress is holding back completed HTML5 themes so you don’t flood the marketplace. And personally, I do not see how releasing a bundle of new themes will de-value your products.

    That’s because you’re not part of StudioPress on both points. They aren’t dictating to you how to run your business, so please don’t try and second-guess for theirs.

    Your customers paid for these themes and want to use them, period.

    And they can – when the customers purchased the themes, they had access to the most up to date versions of each of those themes at the time of purchase. As time goes on, and other themes are updated, customers will get access to those as well. There isn’t an issue here.

    It just would not make sense to start customizing a current theme when we are newly building out on Gen 2.

    Why not? It’s a little bit of extra work, but if you want to be an early implementer, then that’s to be expected.

    You’ve had the benefit of a public official answer from Nick. You may not like the answer, but that’s the answer that’s been given. I’m going to follow his lead and close this thread to new comments.
