I’m using Thesis theme at ShoutMeLoud from more than 2 years and never had and issues with it. It’s one of the best theme out there but the only complaint which I have/had with Thesis is slow update. Thesis theme updates are very slow but I still don’t complain much because I believe in using a theme which not only give peace of mind but also offers SEO stability. Thesis is one of the out of box WordPress theme framework and the best part is, if you use Thesis, it will take care of some of the major and most common SEO problems which most of the themes ignore.
More over, Thesis comes with design and option control panel, which will quickly let you make changes in theme without playing with codes. And if you are one of those who knows CSS, you can create amazingly unique beautiful sites with Thesis.
Specially with Thesis 2.0, Thesis skins will be one of the Key feature which will also include responsive skin (For mobiles and tablets) and there are hell lot of new features will be added in 2.0 version of Thesis. I have already mentioned how many plugins I ditched after using Thesis and my review of Thesis theme clarifies why I love this amazing framework. Few days back I was getting reluctant with Thesis updates and since there was no official confirmation, I dropped a Tweet to @pearsonified (Thesis creator) and he responded saying Thesis 2.0 is in the final stage and will be launching soon.
Thesis 2.0 will be costlier than current Thesis pricing:
Now, it’s confirmed that Thesis 2.0 is going to be launch on 1st October 2012 and Thesis pricing will change. Right now, Thesis is priced as $87 and $164 for personal and developer license, but with launch of Thesis 2.0 it will be priced at $197 for developer license and $99 for single user license, which is almost $33 and $12 costlier than current pricing of Thesis.
Though, if you purchase Thesis now, you will be paying the cheaper price and more over, you will be entitled for getting free Lifetime update. Which includes, you don’t need to pay extra or pay more if you are existing Thesis user. But, if you plan to purchase Thesis 2.0 after it’s launched, you will have to pay the higher price. So, it’s better to take action now and save some money on this amazing framework.
Things you've never seen (but will): 1. a purpose-built, visual HTML template editor 2. a options-driven CSS editor with variables + more

I have been using Thesis theme for years and after trying almost 10 WordPress themes, I finally settled with Thesis framework for my blog network. All the blogs in my network are designed with Thesis theme and needless to say, Thesis work as SEO backbone for my blog network. So, if you have been planning to get yourself one of the best SEO WordPress theme framework, Thesis Wp theme is the best choice and this is best time to get yourself a Thesis license.
I would highly recommend to make the purchase before 1st october 2012, as when Thesis 2.0 will be launched, there is no way to get Thesis discount and you will end up paying extra. Do let me know if you have been planning to use Thesis theme for your blog or if you are a Thesis theme user?
