I know you are likely knee-deep in updates, but I just wanted to touch base and see how that was going. I’m needing to move on a project by June 1, but wanted to try and wait to see if I could make Optimal work in the proposed 1152 width.
Originally you thought early May, but then moved it out a couple weeks. Do you have an ETA on Optimal being 1152? I only ask as it relates to the timing of this next project and whether I should wait for the update.
I know Epik is 1152, and I already bought it too 🙂 but it won’t work as well for this project as I think Optimal will.
Thanks for keeping up with great themes and updates.May 25, 2013 at 11:42 am #4852EricCustomer
I think he just got done with the Legacy theme update and is now starting on Optimal. I think….
I’ll make sure he sees this so he can give you an ETA.

Thanks Eric, I’ll look for his update. Appreciate your help moderating in the forums. Have a great weekend.June 1, 2013 at 4:21 pm #5017
Since this was about a week ago I hadn’t heard an ETA, I thought I’d inquire again. Any update on the timing on the release of the Optimal 1152 format?
Related: I will likely need some help with the specific changes I want to make in the release. Do you have a ‘verified’ or ‘approved’ list of devs here, you know, like they do at StudioPress for their themes?
Thanks.June 2, 2013 at 8:45 pm #5041kronosCustomer
I’ve been wondering the same thing as well. Can’t wait to see it when its ready.June 2, 2013 at 8:49 pm #5042kronosCustomer
@Eric, I know Wes has been pretty busy lately, but do you know when he’ll have it ready?June 3, 2013 at 1:12 pm #5055EricCustomer
He’s designing it on top of the Genesis 2.0 beta, and is adding in the html5 features. That’s the really “Good News”. The bad news, is it could take a while since there is a lot of code that needs to be written to redevelop this on top of the new Genesis 2.0 format. But in the end, it will all be worth it.

Any update on the status now that Genesis 2.0 is available?
In general it would be cool if he could make a blog post briefly letting users know which themes have been updated / are in line to be updated, as other than the brand new one some folks might be interested in buying a couple more themes besides optimal. 🙂August 8, 2013 at 11:24 pm #6293WesModerator
I’ve made a lot of posts here, and on twitter. Here is one – https://twitter.com/WesStraham/status/364437879751057408. I have Legacy, Optimal, Adapt, Ally, and Epik just about done. I’ll be finished late tonight/early morning.
Here is a copy/paste from my recent comment here – http://appfinite.com/topic/eta-for-epik-html5-version/#post-6289
“Sorry, it was supposed to be available earlier today, but I needed to make some extra adjustments. I’m almost done and I expect to be finished late tonight or early tomorrow.
If you’ve purchased from here (appfinite.com), then it will automatically be available in your account – appfinite.com/my-account.
If you purchased from StudioPress, then it will be available tomorrow. I have to send the updated files to Brian and then he uploads them to the StudioPress server.August 8, 2013 at 11:29 pm #6294PhotoshopperCustomer
Thanks Wes! I had only checked your blog and scanned the top level of a couple forums to looking for the words “Genesis 2.0” but it’s great to hear all of those themes will be updated shortly. Was thinking about buying Legacy… basically Legacy is just Optimal without the “cut background” behind the slider, and without the featured product grid in the middle of the home page, right? Would it be a relatively trivial matter to make Optimal look just like Legacy or would I have to do a lot of digging around in the style sheet and PHP to make it work?
[Edit – skip that last bit. I see the menus are shifted and somewhat different. At $18 on SP site, and all the work you put into these I’ll be buying Legacy regardless. 🙂 Although I should learn how to do stuff like the above. Customizing themes is still not my strongsuit.]August 9, 2013 at 1:50 pm #6310WesModerator
So far I have Epik, Legacy, and Optimal ready for download. I made a temporary post in each of those forums.
I’ll be finishing more today. I just need to go through all of the code and make sure everything is as close to perfect as I can possibly get it.
