The new Textpattern features a very nice new admin theme called Remora. It's not active by default, but it is an option from the back-end and for those who are looking for a dropdown menu based admin theme, it's a nice choice.
The official announcement from Textpattern.com reads as follows:
Textpattern CMS 4.2.0 is immediately available for download.
We’ve added new features like admin-side themes, timezone support with automatic DST adjustment on capable servers, and core support for unlimited custom fields, readied Textpattern for compatibility with PHP 5.3, and fixed a number of small bugs. Upgrades from previous 4.x versions are expected to work seamless under usual reserve of plugin compatibility.
More info and downloads are available at the Textpattern website.
