EPS Software Corp./ CODE is proud to announce a new release of the popular CODE Framework product. Among a lengthy list of improvements, the stand-out features of this release are enhancements to the included WPF Themes, including the introduction of two completely new themes called “Geek” (Visual Studio 2012 look-alike theme) and a new black “Vapor” theme. Previously supported themes such as “Metro” (WinRT look), “Battleship” (Windows 95 look), and “Workplace” (Office 2013 look) have also been updated and enhanced. The different themes allow developers to create great looking applications in very little time and even switch between those (sometimes drastically different) looks on the fly without any code changes. Developers can also customize these themes or create brand new themes.

A forthcoming article in CODE Magazine provides a great overview over all the default themes currently supported by CODE Framework. Articles on how to create custom themes and how to use the framework in general have been published previously and can be found on

The latest version includes both an update to the core product as well as the Visual Studio Tools accompanying the product. CODE Framework is free and open-source and it can be downloaded from
