WordPress.com recently phased out Cutline across all blogs, replacing it with visually improved Coraline theme. Cutline got some exciting new features: "Coraline get you more features built-in; A custom background, custom headers (changeable on any post or page with a Featured Image), special styles for Gallery posts and shorter Aside posts, a Visual Editor that mimics the look of the theme, and customizable drop-down menus."

  • Coraline's Multiple Layouts features offer 5 layouts to choose from. Visit Appearance ? Theme Options and Choose from up to two sidebars—on the right or left—and 3-column layouts—including one with sidebars on both sides.
  • Coraline added 7 Widget Areas — four widget areas to the footer and—if you've selected a layout with two sidebars next to each other on the right or left—a bonus "Feature" widget area that spans two sidebar columns.
  • Alternate Color Schemes gives your blog a different look, every time you need? Coraline also has an alternate dark color scheme selectable from Appearance ? Theme Options.

Also, Matt Mullenweg, recently said that "PressRow will be the next theme on the chopping block. Matt also, states that the widget loss bug has been corrected, and notification will improve with support coming this time around.
