Garland

We both know that the most important impression you need to make is your first one. So after more than two years, Drupal has a new default theme. Better yet, we added a color picker that allows administrators to change the theme's color scheme without having to touch a single line of HTML/CSS.

The new default core theme that will ship with Drupal 5.0. The new theme is called Garland and was created by Stefan Nagtegaal and Steven Wittens. The screenshot shows you the new theme as well as the color picker to alter the color scheme.

So not only brings this new default core theme raw beauty, it is actually the easiest to customize Drupal theme in existence. Great job guys! Bling, bling!
