    With all this hustle and bustle about the new 4.5 being out, has anyone heard anything about the Theme Builder being updated because I am itching to build some new themes now.

    Nothing yet, There has been a beta of a new version (4.3) out for a long long time but no release date. But that's not unusual from Plazmic.

    Sorry

    ya, UNofficial beta (all plazmic cdk beta's are private/by invite only betas).
    doesn't work properly on all the OS's across the board, though i am sure they are getting close.

    i don't think the beta will be released anytime soon. course, i could be wrong

    it should be soon especially with the Bold on the way. Owners would like to design their favorite themes for it. I think sometimes the lag intentionally to give providers the edge.

    Its time for us owners to start writing our own theme designer because at this moment I am frustrated with plazmic. The idea that you cannot have a theme built your way is just so limiting. Imagine having a theme where all your icons are around the edges of the screen(drawing a square), your time/signal/etc would be in the middle. That would be cool looking but no plazmic will not give us that option.

    my guess is that the next version of the CDK will not be free
    but that is just "MY" opinion

    That would mean my new themes wont be free either. And theme makers will have no other choice but to make killer themes, otherwise no one willl want em. Its good for fair competition though

    If they are going to charge us for the new theme builder, let's make our own theme builder where we can do anything we want.

    There are a couple of problems with building our own:
    1) Plazmic is backed by RIM, they know exactly what is possible with the phones, they know how the phones are programed, and by them knowing how each one works to the fullest they can drop one product for all phones.
    2) Kinda goes with one, in order for someone on pinstack to build it they would need to be able to produce a theme builder where it works for all phones. Basically they would have to study all of the phones and it would take too much time.
    3)I just don't see anyone taking the time to program that when plazmic is 100 steps ahead.

    But by all means if we have someone on here to answer those problems let me know and I would gladly pay for it.

    I can't imagine they would charge for something that's always been free. Seems like a little too much, certainly in today's environment. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I really don't see it becoming a fee based program either. RIM has always been good with providing the development kits for free, the Plazmic CDK and the Blackberry JDE. But that doesn't mean it won't happen.
