It came out a while ago, but I'm busy working on a really fantastic project at the moment, which does involve a Joomla site, geared around positive social change so I'm playing catch up with a lot of things, new themes is one of them, so I apologise. That and we've just had a baby girl, so I hope the apology gets accepted.
This one from Shape 5 is nice and rather than focusing on a new extension or something you can add to Joomla to make it smarter than Joomla already is, it concentrates on Joomla and just a couple of extensions, that you'll get with the theme from Shape 5.
I'm a big fan of Joomla and as I've said before, try to use just Joomla if I can as adding other extensions and extensions that start playing with the core and the database, increases the risk of something going wrong and while I know a theme doesn't have to use these other extensions, it is just nice to see a theme that has had a bit of work put into it, just for Joomla and this one ticks all the boxes.
