Team Update: Twenty Twelve

We are the team formerly known as “Twenty Twelve Two”—now three strong with Drew Strojny joining up for the 3.4 releaseRelease A release is the distribution of the final version of an application. A software release may be either public or private and generally constitutes the initial or new generation of a new or upgraded application. A release is preceded by the distribution of alpha and then beta versions of the software. cycle as the theme designer. Welcome Drew!

What we’re calling our “first cycle” ends today with Drew delivering us the first working prototype with the basic layout in place. Matt committed it with r19842. (See also #19978.)

Consider this version 0.5

This is not yet a fully working theme—we’ll be adding in more features and lots of missing styles over the next 3–4 weeks. Including post formats, comments, archives and page templates, more in-post styling, and a nav menu rework so the main content comes ahead of the navigation.

Our goal for the next cylcle is to finish up all the missing visual styles from Drew, with Lance making relevant code changes as needed. Deliverable is a finished theme that everyone can start using and testing in earnest.

Schedule notes

1. Due to schedule conflicts we need to be going slowly over the next week or two, picking it up again in earnest Feb 20–Feb 29.
2. Office hours will probably be on Mondays, I’ll post the actual times soon.

Update: We’ll end our cycle on Feb 29th.
