Genesis + WordPress 3.1 = Update Now!

As many of you know, this morning the long-awaited WordPress 3.1 was officially released. We wanted to let you know that we’ve updated all of the Genesis child theme demo sites, and all is well.

This is our way of saying “Go for it, you should safely be able to update to WordPress 3.1!”

Coming Soon to a Genesis Theatre Near You…

Piggybacking on the announcement of WordPress 3.1 being available, we’re happy to say that the Tapestry child theme should be released soon. Tapestry will utilize a very cool feature that comes packaged with WordPress 3.1 – post formats. These will include Asides, Chat, Gallery, Image, Link, Quote, Status and Video.

Tapestry Child Theme Preview

While we have the Tapestry theme ready to go, we recently updated the default Genesis style sheet (more on that) which will delay the release a bit. We want to use the new style sheet format on all theme releases moving forward, so we’ll need to update the code a bit.

So for now, go ahead and update to WordPress 3.1, and enjoy our efforts to seamlessly integrate your WordPress experience with the Genesis Framework!
