    The "news" theme is not ready for prime time....very little in the way of options, not post types, no ability to support comments on the home page, bloated layout...Looks promising in v 0.2 but has some work ahead of it.

    Sorry I wasted a few hours setting up a customer on it..

    very little in the way of options

    What additional options are needed?

    not post types

    Post types don't belong in themes. Plus, they're not even allowed in themes on WordPress.org (other than in very special circumstances).

    no ability to support comments on the home page

    It's very possible to do this, but it's not a standard theme feature. I can count on one hand the number of themes I've ever seen for WordPress that does this out of the box.

    bloated layout

    I agree, but it seems to be what some folks are looking for in this type of theme.
