[prMac.com] Kitchener, CA - 2hadow for RapidWeaver 4, a RapidWeaver theme with considerable history is now offered by seyDoggy as an open source product. It was a variant of 2hadow that, in 2005, launched the theme design career of now renowned 3rd party developer, seyDoggy. Originally developed for RapidWeaver 3.1, the then dubbed "Shadow" was continually upgraded through each version of RapidWeaver that followed.
"It's just time to let this theme go. It's from another era in our history and it's time it had some new life and new meaning.", says 2hadows designer, Adam Merrifield.
2hadows release to the open source vault comes in the form of an update. Now at version 7 (r7), 2hadow is said to work better with recent YourHead plugins such as Carrousel, Kwix and the shiny new Collage 2.
"Isaiah and I were back and forth with a few variants of r7 to make sure that 2hadow and YourHead plugins would play nice together under normal use," states Adam, "this version should do the trick making 2hadow stable enough to be let loose in the open source pool."
The newly open sourced 2hadow is covered under creative commons license, Attribution-Share Alike 3.0. seyDoggy encourages users to download and experiment with 2hadow r7 but also urges users to share their mods back with the seyDoggy and the community.
