It's just too hard to start playing with concrete5 when you visit concrete5.org.

We're launching this new SimpleSite hosting as a way to provide instant demos of the latest stable version. If people want to keep them and host as is for $15/mo we're happy to support that. If they want to upgrade to a standalone concrete5 install, or graduate away to a budget host, we're happy to make that happen as well.

Here's some guidelines for what we're needing out of themes that might be included.

concrete5 5.7.1 is a big update to 5.7. It brings back the marketplace and connect to the community features, which are now completely contained in a new Dashboard interface, as well as the sitemap flat view, which wasn't quite ready for 5.7. It also adds some UI improvements, like block type search in the add block panel, and some under-the-hood improvements like block-level caching. We've also added Twitter authentication and support for logging in with your concrete5.org community username and password to your own site!

Additionally, we've fixed numerous bugs, tightened up the editing interface, and made a number of under-the-hood improvements.
