    It should be one of two default themes in WordPress. Have you tried re-installing WordPress?

    re-installing wordpress will not install the twentytwelve theme.

    twentytwelve was announced for wordpress.com today but is not yet available in wordpress.org, apparently it should be made available shortly, whatever that means

    wpsquare.com has a demo version of twentytwelve, and a download version if you cannot wait for wordpress.org

    considering that twentytwelve is supposed to be responsive, I sure don't like how it works with IE8

    I wouldn't recommend downloading it from an unofficial 3rd party site. If you download the latest nightly build of WordPress, you should find twentytwelve in the themes folder when you unzip it http://wordpress.org/download/nightly/

  7. It may be premature but if your feeling adventurous then you can use SVN to get a copy until it is available in the theme repo.

    $ cd wp-content/themes
    $ svn co https://wpcom-themes.svn.automattic.com/twentytwelve/ twentytwelve-wpcom

    Which will put a copy of that theme in wp-content/themes/twentytwelve-wpcom and you can then activate that in your WordPress dashboard.

    The new theme looks nice. ;)

    Edit: And in the 10 minutes it took for me to draft that reply, cubecolour reply is good too. :)

    There is a comment on make.wordpress.org with release plans for .org, looks like 2-3 weeks for the official .org release.

    I found this theme for download here http ://www.wpsquare.com/demo-download-twenty-twelve-wordpress-theme/
    But i also heard it will be part of wordpress 3.5

  11. See cubecolour's warning about that.

    You should always be wary of downloading theme's from third party sites. You safest bet would either be to wait, use the nightly, or use the SVN copy above.

    Edit: Yeah, do not download that copy from that site. It looks to be about 6 weeks old and hosted on DropBox.

    I've been running Twenty Twelve 0.6 on my blog for over a week now and it works like a dream. It's beautiful.

    I pulled 0.9 out of the Nightly Build (per cubecolour) and it's way buggy.

    Large chunks of text are simply missing when viewed on mobile (which is NOT a problem with 0.6) and there's weird justification stuff going on in widgets (which, again, is NOT a problem with 0.6).

    Is there a proper place to report these bugs? Like I said, 0.6 performs and displays like a dream, but 0.9 gave me so many problems that I went back to the smooth sailing of 0.6.

    Thanks as always to the WordPress team for your hard work.

    The last two nightly builds I've tested of Twenty Twelve 0.9 are broken in IE 8 and below -- they display the "mobile" menu and the sidebar, at all sizes.

    I looked though Trac for Twenty Twelve IE bugs, but all the tickets seem to be closed? I must be missing something...

    Twenty Twelve is in Extend directory now: http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/twentytwelve.
