And, perfect update for me. No problems today or outdated templates (y)
Awesome, I'm really happy with this release while it is small I managed to code the visitor tabs area in a far cleaner way.

Of course I did run into a minor bug this morning with the user panel :D, simple check box fix but I won't count that :D
I am using Core AND Blackened Pro (1.5.6), both based on XenBase. So if i upgrade now the Core and XenBase style to 1.5.7, will it affect Blackened Pro somehow negatively ?
