The question is simple, is everybody upgrading to WP 3 .x ? When releasing a WordPress template, should we release both versions in one file or 2 distinctive files ?

I think we should support both versions and have to upload our items to support WP2 and WP3 … No ?

No :) I’ve done this when there were only RC versions, but since WP3 is officially out, I don’t think we should support older versions (I don’t see a reason for that). “Just because we can” isn’t a reason for me…

Nope.

It’s not like browsers, mostly every users will update to 3.0 and if they don’t and complain that your theme doesn’t work well, just tell them to upgrade and I think they will.

Make your theme 2.x compatible e.g. use the if (function_excists()); command e.g.

 <?php if(function_exists('add_custom_background')) add_custom_background(); ?>

I did a major update to one of my themes, completely reworking the fraemwork and doing a lot of modifcations that will only work with WP3 . So in my theme package I just left the previous version of the theme there, too. I figured it’s already made, why not give them the option to have it if they want.

No, Latest version only imo.

There has to be some responsibility to the end user.
