New xScape Theme Framework based theme called Focus is very close to release, and here is a small preview of how the theme is gonna look like. Currently, only one style is available using gold/red colors, but more than 10 styles will be available with built in color style switcher.
Focus uses jQuery Nivo Slider with wide range of settings to control navigation, transitions and animation of slides. Theme has two menus, with top level navigation can be on top of layout or between main menu and content. Header area where logo or site name is displayed can have background image. And, all colors can be set through theme settings as a custom theme style.
Theme mixes news/magazine, normal blog or photo layouts so it can be used for a lot of different things. There will be several different layouts available for archives and individual posts, including brand new template for images, that will be added to other themes also.
Focus will be released with xScape Theme Framework 1.6.0 that will have several new features and number of improvements and fixes. Theme beta version will be released on Tuesday, with final version to be released by the end of the next week.
