Introducing New Default Twenty Eleven Theme
Twenty Eleven is based on the popular Duster theme. Rotating header images, post format support, and more.Twenty Eleven will come with both a light and a dark option.

These options will make the default WordPress theme more modular, in that you’ll be able to easily change your page layout without having to touch the CSS.
