Disaster inbound: Nokia will not publish new Symbian themes after July 1!
Apparently, the people at Nokia have sold their souls completely and will now heartlessly pull the plug on yet another lovely Symbian feature - themes. Starting July 1, developers will no longer be able to publish new Symbian themes in the Nokia store. Isn't that a disaster? We say it is!

OK, the thing is that some devs will still be able to publish themes in the store. It looks like Nokia will be initiating what it calls the Publisher Partner Program, with only a small number of developers able to take part (Nokia will pick the approved devs itself). That group of companies will be the only ones able to publish new themes come July 1.

The makers of themes that are currently offered at the story doesn't have much to worry about, as their content will continue to be available for download. However, those devs that aren't part of the Publisher Partner Program won't be able to update or make other changes to their themes. Interestingly, Nokia, seems eager to see you "unpublish" your work, which becomes evident in the last sentence of the email sent to Symbian theme publishers. You can find the complete message below!
