Hey everybody,I figured I'd get this out of the way before Kevin comes along and steals my spotlight by showing you some nice new pictures of the Storm and whatever else he can dig up at the Developers Conference lol. I had a sneaky suspicion this was coming anyways - it really would make no sense at all if this didn't show up at DevCon.

Now all you theme makers out there will have a great interest in this little bit of news, so I'm glad to bring it to you. The Plazmic 4.6 CDK has gone official on the BlackBerry site and is available for download. The upgrade you will see is from bundle 20 to bundle 24, and yes I can confirm that nasty crash bug with using your own fonts has indeed been corrected. With an official launch and less crashyness, let's get crack'n on some nice themes everyone.

Grab it over at BlackBerry.com >>

Plazmic 4.6 Gets Official Treatment

The new Plazmic theme builder program. Includes everything for making themes for the newer Pearl Flip and Bold.

i can finally get around the damn font crashing bug.
took me a few days to figure that one out....

thanks for the posted link directly to the download!!!

I played with it for couple of hours.
Besides that issue with font crashing, it looks to me it is same as that Beta version.
It is still not accepting fonts as the earlier version of Plazmic. You can set it anyway you wont and it comes funny looking.
Well, my two cents.

the new Plazmic has some interesting files in the download that were not in the Beta build 20. (or if they were i didnt find them anywhere)
take a look at the directory structure where you installed it.
if you accepted the default directory install, the folder of most interest will be here:
C:\Program Files\Plazmic CDK 4.6\samples\Themes\custom
i am most interested in the Ring folder. but the animated SVG file for the home screen actually rotates in a 'ring' fashion!
now, the trick will be how to incorporate this new SVG file with the ZEN feature and have the end-user customize the 5 icons in the ring.
still working on that, but if i find out how (of if someone else does first) lets share the knowledge!!!
