Zen themes updated

  |   Source   |   Minimap

OK, time to recap some things... As you know, Nikola 7.0.0 was released some weeks ago. It has a lot of improvements, bug fixes and new features. I recommend you to download and try it! As part of the release, we paid attention to update all the plugins and themes inside the Nikola Github organization (don't forget you can contribute with your own plugins and themes!). So, I updated my own themes, in particular, the Zen ones.

As you also now, IPython 2.x was released just some weeks ago too. So, I took into account this two releases and updated the Zen themes to be compatible with both of them. As a consequence of the update, the zen-ipython theme has change a little bit, some bugs were fixed and some features enabled. You can probably has noticed that if you visit my blog in the last two weeks. If you did not notice, first, buy some glasses ;-), and then, take a tour, visit some of my old posts (there are interesting new comments every week) and enjoy the new theme.

And... don't forget! You can get the Zen themes very easily. First, to list all the available themes at the Nikola themes repo:
