Tomorrow I'll commit the changes to the menu which will invalidate the old 
theme format. This means third party themes will no longer work.

The themes which have been converted are: Blue, G.A.N.T, MythCenter, 
MythCenter-wide, Retro, Minimalist-wide, Iulius and Titivillus

Justin Hornsby's themes in SVN haven't been converted, but I believe he 
intends to convert some if not all. Patches to convert these themes will be 

I'll release a new, compatible version of Metallurgy just before the commit 

N.B. These are just the start of ongoing breakages of old themes. We'll try to 
convert over popular core themes, but without help it may not be possible to 
keep up. Simultaneously converting nine themes (inc default) in addition to 
changing the code is too much for one person.
