We are very proud to announce the fourth generation of Reuxables, built for WPF + Silverlight 4.0 and supporting implicit styling across both technologies. Along with Generation 4, we are introducing new themes, new product types, and subscription options all tailored – from purchasing to usage – for a better themeing experience for you.
And last, but not least, nukeation.com has been completely remodeled for a better customer experience, including a new Subscriber Downloads area.
New Themes: Gemini + Developer
Leading this new generation of themes are our two new designer themes.
Gemini, the successor to Paper 2010 with several new enhancements including beautifully designed additional button, tab, and list styles. With these additional styles you can cover several new themeing scenarios such as a creating a suite of applications, each with its own distinct color style, or providing color-coding for better cognition.
If you purchased Paper 2010, please email us for a 50% off upgrade to Gemini.
Developer, the de facto standard for developer applications as well as any solution that requires a multi-faceted UI while remaining breathable and recognizable. Following our new design principles of multiple common control styles per theme this theme features additional tab and button styles.
Assembly + Source Editions
Since XAML themes are pretty new to the software industry, and since XAML is such a flexible technology the usage of themes varies extensively. After some in-depth research, some internal code tinkering, and of course – most importantly – listening to you, we are introducing a new dynamic shift in our product lineup to make Reuxables even more affordable
Assembly versions are designed specifically for developers who intend to use the themes without customizations. This affordable new method allows you access to all themes* at almost half the price. Read the next section for information on the new subscription type just for assemblies.
Source versions are just like the previous generation of Reuxables, that is, full XAML source is available for the theme. This is the best solution for developers requiring customization or deep access to the theme resources.

* Currently, Assembly editions are available only for WPF as Silverlight has certain technological restrictions.
New Subscriptions + Slashed Prices
With the introduction of the new product editions, we have split the older annual subscription into two separate subscriptions.
Subscription Lite gives you cost-effective access to the entire Generation 4 theme library in Assembly form at a very affordable price, with access to new themes that we are constantly adding to our collection, priority access to bug fixes, new enhancements upgrades, and more.
Subscription Ultimate gives you extended access to our entire Generation 4 and Generation 3.5 theme libraries with full source code, with access to our upcoming Windows Phone 7 support for all Silverlight themes, priority tech support, WPF/Silverlight Toolkits, as well as several other benefits.
All existing Subscribers who have purchased a subscription on or before July 19 have been upgraded, free of cost to Subscription Ultimate. (See access details below)
Additionally, the renewal fee is now slashed by $100.

New Downloads Area
Along with the new Subscription types, we are introducing our new simplified downloads area for Subscribers.
With a simple single access code system, you can get instant downloads for your subscription, as well as previous generation themes. Below the downloads you can get the version history for all builds including new features and modifications for each build.
If you are existing subscriber, you should receive an updated access code in 24 hours. In case you need access urgently, or have not received the new code, please contact us.
You can access the new Subscribers Downloads page at http://www.nukeation.com/updates.aspx
Retiring Classic Themes
With the release of Generation 4, in an effort to deliver better quality themes, we have retired our old themes that were based on older design frameworks. We have started introducing new themes such as Gemini and Developer, to address the new trends in visual styles as well as the most requested features for Reuxables. Moving forward, by the end of 2010 we will be introducing several new themes.
Subscription Ultimate, and previous Subscribers will still have full access to previous themes.
