I can't say I'm too happy with the new thesis hook interface, but I can live with it. However, I'm very unhappy with the fact that I can't get rid of the thesis attribution link at the bottom of a client site. I tried both checking and unchecking the option under the thesis-hook-footer menu and neither got rid of the link. And yes - that's with caching off.
Never mind - I DID forget to turn off caching.
