I just wanted to make as wacky of a design as I could, and Tarski made it really easy for me. I’ve used WordPress for too many years now, and Tarski is the first theme I’ve come across that has made it truly easier for me to customise.

Seeing other people base original designs on Tarski’s codebase wasn’t something I really expected when we first released the theme, but there have actually been a number of them.
Tick Different is based on Tarski. Gorgeous colours combine into a dark, rich style—reminds me of expensive chocolate.
WordPress 2.0.5 will be out fairly soon, and as soon as the release version arrives we’ll be testing it to ensure Tarski’s compatibility.
The roadmap has been updated to give a more accurate and complete picture of what’s going to be in 1.2, but I thought I’d write up a brief summary of where things stand and where we go from here.
Firstly, I’ve rewritten a fair amount of the CSS, to make it more flexible and extensible. Content areas (such as entries, comments and so on) are now denoted by the
content class, while the two columns are referred to by
secondary classes. This replaces a large and disparate set of
ids, making the code cleaner and easier to extend and modify. Additional stylesheets, for example, should now be much easier to write.
Secondly, Chris has been working on the Tarski Options page, cleaning it up and improving it substantially. We hope that the new version will be easier and more intuitive to use.
There are also the usual raft of tweaks and improvements, including the much-requested pagination and next/previous links, better trackback and language support, and a new and improved
loop.php file which should make modifications based on the Tarski code much easier to implement.
1.2 beta test
Because there are such substantial alterations to the code, we want to run a small test before releasing it publicly. Sign up for the 1.2 beta on this forum thread.
Beta applications are now closed.
Guilty Carnivore has a beautiful modification of Tarski running.
