Not really, there are 2 themes that work with 2.1 RC1 but might not work with RC2, and there is one which works with RC2

There might be some outside of simplemachines.org though, just search on google.

I can only find one:
Author: Antes
Last Update: June 30, 2019, 10:45:09 AM
Downloads: 982
SMF versions: 2.1 RC1, 2.1 RC2

He said that he had a fix for some issues that it has, but they will not be available for at least 30 days. I can understand he is sick and also studying for finals. God Bless Him!

Yea, most likely there won't be a lot of themes until 2.1 goes gold, I for one won't be making any until that point.

What is the reason themes for SMF 2.1 beta/RC1 will need updates for RC2? Are there changes in templates?

What do you mean going gold? And I'm looking for a custom "Music" theme.  https://djradiosoundstation.com .

As in, things tagged 'RC' are 'release candidates', they are not the final release and anything may change.

As people who were here during the 2.0 RC release phase, updating themes between 2.0 RC1, RC2, RC3, RC4, RC5 and 2.0.0 was really annoying.

So should I just stay with 2015 where there are a lot of working themes?   ::)

Probably. 2.1 isn't finished yet and unless you have the time/inclination/skill to keep it updated and patched and even patch themes yourself on occasion, you probably don't want to be using 2.1 yet.

Stay with 2.0.15.  Last I looked, there were four 2.1 themes, had to tweak the .xml to get them to install in 2.1 RC2, two were broken.  Don't think anyone's doing a lot of themes or mods for 2.1 til it goes final.

Took a quick glance at RC1 and RC2, quite a few changes even to the most changed templates(index,boardindex,messageindex and display) ..but as far as I can see its mostly changed css classes, some added/changed logic for mobile display and coding style changes. Plus, the index.css - the most changed styleshet - has quite a few changes for changing different parts of the theme.

In other words: unless you know what you are doing, its probably best to wait a bit longer. :)

I heard a rumour that the plan is to introduce a completely new theme with the next RC. ;)

I really do not know who else can create a forum like Simple Machine as a former Jamstudio forum Admin for 5 years we have over 10,000 members on the forum. And it was a Simple Machine Forum.

"New New New Default Theme" I'd imagine. "NDT" was at one point what was used to refer to Core.
