Premium WordPress theme, with heavy use of intellegent grids, from legendary designer Khoi Vinh. Perhaps a little pricey at $45, but may be worth it for some folks who salivate at perfect grids =). Other features include a robust archives page, shortcode functionalities, widgets, and color-based theme options.
Stay tuned for some similar and equally delicious functionality coming to some DIW themes near you!

rel="canonical" support, query for posts AND pages, post thumbnails, optimized database tables, and more!

In this one we cover the GPL and how it benefits WordPress, why WP is under the GPL, commercial themes, how the GPL fosters innovation, creates value, and affects themes and plugins.
I certainly learned some stuff about the GPL. Like 1) You can sell/profit from themes that are GPL and 2) Anything built around an existing GPL product must also be GPL.
