19 themes, Widgetkit and ZOO support now Joomla 3.0

Two weeks ago, on 27 September 2012, Joomla 3.0 was released. It's the next major version of the Joomla CMS and comes with some great features we are really excited about. Finally Joomla ships with jQuery included, now that's pure awesomeness! We've been following the development closely and in the last couple of weeks worked on the integration of our themes and extensions.

Today we are glad to announce that Warp 6, Widgetkit and ZOO are Joomla 3.0 ready! Thanks to our Warp framework this means our 19 latest themes are immediately available for Joomla 3.0. The same goes for our popular Joomla extensions: Widgetkit 1.3 and ZOO 3.0! The Warp UI fits nicely in the Joomla administration. The release of Joomla 3.0 has also officially ended the Joomla 1.5 support. So we've dropped support for Joomla 1.5 in the latest Widgetkit 1.3 and ZOO 3.0 accordingly.

Everyone who wants to try out our Joomla 3.0 themes today, just grab a copy of Joomla 3.0 and head over to our Warp themes, Widgetkit or ZOO downloads. Enjoy!

Should I use Joomla 3.0?

Joomla 3.0 is a Short Term Release and it is only recommended for more experienced users and developers. Joomla 2.5 is still the recommended version for most users. It focuses on stability and will be supported into 2014. Read more about it in the official Joomla 3.0 news or FAQs.

What about demo packages for Joomla 3.0?

You can easily update Joomla 2.5 demo installation packages to Joomla 3.0. Just go to the Joomla update component in the Joomla configuration. Click on "Options" and set the "Update server" to "Short Term Support". Now an update for Joomla 3.0 should be available and you can install it with one click. Once this is done just update your Warp theme. To do so just replace the themes Warp folder with the latest Warp 6.3. To update Widgetkit or ZOO just re-install it through the Joomla extension manager.

    Of course i understand that incorporating bootstrap in the frontend is a bit more work and that the goodness that comes with it greatly overlap with widgetkit. But leaving it out totally is really disappointing. This is just making it compatible with 3.0, but in function it is still warp with 2.5 (including the missing joomla core functions).

    Still a big fan of yoo, but shouldn't a framework add functions instead of leaving quite a bit out?

      There is no big overlap with Widgetkit and no need to use Bootstrap.

    Other than supporting Joomla 3 is there any other additions or features in Zoo 3.0?

    Congrats with the new releases. Since my guess was wrong, can I have YOOcart as a consolation price :-) Thanks and keep up the great work!

    Good work on the update. It came earlier than I expected but at the right time. Quick one, the default template that comes with Joomla 3 has a color picker which really comes in handy. Any change of adding this to warp?

    Thanks

    Already done the upgrade to Joomla 3.0.1. There wasn't any errors.

    It would be great to see news about templates for Drupal ;)

    This is really great news. The theme works (Sphere) but after loading the widget kit, white screens front and back end. Recreated the problem on a fresh Joomla 3 install twice. Anyone else have this?

    How can it be described as Joomla 3 compatible if it doesn't support MS SQL, which is supported by Joomla 3?

    any chance that you would make your other themes responsive? I'm using Sync, and it's wonderful. But I also have Revista on a couple of sites, and I've seen other people use Revista. It's a great look! Awesome if it would be responsive.

    Am I the only one that has updated and my site now does not work? What have I done wrong? I'm using Joomla 2.5, and done what I normally do to install/update.

    Any chance on make a new Theme for Zoo, I think the design/interface of Products, etc has gotten a little old. I still love the application and I would not choose another one, but a little design would go a long way.

    Are the ZOO admin components now fully responsive? So that they work with Joomla 3's responsive admin?
