    Does anyone have a link to changes is Twenty Eleven 1.3?

    It would be highly appreciated if the developers of Twenty Eleven would produce changelogs for people to review before upgrading their themes. Thank you!

    I looked at the dif's in Trac. While it may be technically accurate.. I wouldn't want to sit and have to decode it. I would be looking for a summary not unlike the WordPress 3.3 list of changes.

    Having posted the link I did, I add this: I very much agree with both Bozz and mrtphoto. :)

    There's this now, I see: WordPress 3.3 released.

    Still can't find a list of changes for TwentyEleven 1.3 from a user perspective. How are WordPress users expected to decide whether an update to a theme is worth installing (or may be more trouble than its worth).
    Trac documentation of code changes isn't what's needed - what's actually changed in how it appears/operates?

    I've been mulling this one over and the conclusion I have come to is WordPress is thinking of Twenty Eleven, Twenty Ten, (and soon Twenty Twelve) as part of its core operations and not a separate theme.

    In other words, updates are made to these themes so they are 100% compatible with the latest version of WordPress, not so that users have more functionality. I suspect most of the changes are behind the scenes (ie deprecated call fixes) rather than in the back or front end.

    So while this is no excuse for not providing a changelog for users and developers, this is my thinking about why they are not putting much effort into supporting this theme from a stand-alone perspective.

    It would be extremely helpful to hear directly from the developers of Twenty Eleven on this so we are not left guessing.

    Bozz,

    I think that you are right, but don't have a problem with it. There is a new ThemeShaper starter theme The _s Theme that has closely matched the development of Twenty Twelve according to Lance Willett. Supposedly, Twenty Twelve is behind schedule, and might not make it until WordPress 3.5 comes out. If that's the case, I would like to see Twenty Eleven continually updated to the most current standards until Twenty Twelve is released. This is a selfish desire on my part since I would like to see the most modern techniques of Mobile First/Adaptive/Responsive Design integrated into the WordPress default theme as it continually progresses.
    I'm aware that others might not feel the same way about it.
