Version 0.6 of the Hybrid theme framework has been one of the solidest releases we’ve had yet. It’s been nearly two months since the last release, which I consider a good thing.

Update your theme
Take a few minutes to upgrade to the latest version.
With the built-in theme upgrader for WordPress, this should be as simple as going to your themes control panel and upgrading Hybrid. If you’re not a fan of the upgrader, just download a fresh copy of the theme (version 0.6.1), delete your old copy, and upload the new one.
