Grid Focus first WordPress.com theme release of 2009
Grid Focus was announced as the first new theme release for WordPress.com in 2009 via Almost Productive. Self-hosted WordPress users can continue to download the theme for modification and use from the official Grid Focus page.
This may seem like a small achievement, but I feel warm and fuzzy inside seeing that Grid Focus is available for WordPress.com users.
Expect to see continued Grid Focus development with theme admin options, and possible stylesheet updates for paid WordPress.com users who have access to CSS editing.
