I just wanted to let you all know that Ally version 1.3.1 is now available!
This was redeveloped based on the latest Genesis 2.0/HTML5 Markup.
There were many changes and updates, as this was developed from scratch using Genesis 2.0. So if you’ve made customizations to your previous version of the theme and would like to update to Genesis 2.0, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you manually make the updates instead of replacing your theme files with the new version. For example – If you replace a highly customized version of your style.css file, your previous changes will be overridden! You have been warned!
The proper way to update an already customized version of a theme is to do it manually. There are many resources available that can help assist you with making the changes to your stylesheet. Here is a list of resources that can make this process much faster –

You can also search for a Genesis 2.0 Converter if you want to test an automatic way to make these changes in your files.
Before you do anything, you’ll need to backup your work and save all of your files.
Keep in mind, you can still use an older version of the theme with Genesis 2.0 and it would still work fine. However, if you want to take advantage of the latest Genesis 2.0/HTML5 enhancements, then give the updated version a try.
More info on this and other themes being updated soon. Look out for the blog post!
