It's the first release of 2013 and we're excited to start the year off on some pretty fabulous footing. We have released three updates: one improvement; and two new themes.
First, the Aviary image editor has received a facelift! It's fancier and more user-friendly than ever. Here's a sneak peek:
Want to take a closer look? Compose a new post with an image, then double-click it to launch the image editor. All the great tools will be at your disposal, now with a fancy new face.
The second part of our release today is all about themes--two dashing ones, to be precise.
The first of the two themes is Polished, which comes in 8 fabulous colors, with columns wide enough to show off images and display advertisements at a full 300px. Our sneak peek is below, but make sure to check it out at Design > Choose a Theme.
The second theme we have to offer is Dapper. This comes in one color scheme, but is pretty swank all on its own. It's like a Black Tie affair where you can rub your class in everyone else's face. Check it out at Design > Choose a Theme.
Diggin' the new styles but still want something more custom? Create your own theme! You can even submit it to Typepad for possible inclusion in the list of themes, full credit given to you. (How boss would it be to see your name and design visible to all Typepad users, new and old? Pretty boss, man.)
Share your thoughts about today's release with your fellow bloggers over in the Typepad community forum. We look forward to your feedback!
