This is the initial release, composing of a zip file with the full Visual Studio 2008 solution as well as a .wsp file for install of the SharePoint solution only.
Note that there is no Visual Studio 2005 solution. SPThemes requires Visual Studio 2008, but the free Express editions will suffice.
To install WSP, use STSADM to install the solution:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN\>stsadm –o addsolution –filename %PATH TO SPTHEMES%\SPThemes.wsp
Replace %PATH TO SPTHEMES% with the path to where you save the SPThemes.wsp file.
Next, go to Central Administration->Operations->Solution Management and deploy the solution.
Finally, activate the setup feature from Site Settings->Site collection features. NOTE!
Only activate the Setup feature. The Setup feature will activate the other features as required. Do not activate these manually.

. A preview of that issue is attached.
