Updated on June 24, 2016: As can be seen on our Github, this Crafts version based on Magento alpha 1.0.7, yet we hardly find chance to keep ongoing updates to this free version because there have been huge changes in Magento 2 since then and our internal plan as well. Check out the new Crafts for Magento 2, with some important changes -- here.
Magento 2.0 has been the talk of the Magento town for months and the beta version was finally released yesterday. Not staying behind we are today releasing our first FREE responsive Magento 2.0 theme (beta) for you all to test drive.
Our team has been tracking the progress and working hard to stay updated and prepare ourselves for the official Magento 2.0 release.

3. How we are gearing up for Magento 2
Ever since the first introduction of Magento 2.0 developer version on Github, we promptly downloaded the package and embarked on analyzing its new structures as well as new features. And here is what we’ve learnt about this latest Magento version.
With decent understanding of the new structure of Magento 2.0, we started to convert our Crafts theme from the Magento 1.9 version to Magento 2
4. Tieup with MageStore.com for compatibility testing
We have tiedup with MageStore.com for mutual assistance in rolling out Magento 2 themes and extensions. Together we would be able to adapt and roll out products well tuned for Magento 2.
Note: This is first beta release and we would be releasing quick updates and we welcome all the bug reports and feature requests on our GitHub repository.
