0.9.253 missing manifest file?

I've just installed the 0.9.253 version and when installing a new theme, by zip file, I get:

"Uploading module package failed: Package does not contain a manifest."

The zip worked fine in v0.8, for example,, manifest: testerTheme\Theme.txt

Help appreciated.



- pasting theme folder to themes installation path works fine. are there any new validations on the installer?

- even if I zip "TheThemeMachine" and try to upload it, I get the error message above

- css file Styles\site.css is not acessible, unless I add a web.config file (behavior changed from v0.8)

I have another question I'd like to see solved: Is there any way I can do someting like @Display(Model.MyZone) or @Display(MyZone) where MyZone is a new Zone defined in the theme?

That sounds like a bug. Can you please file it in the issue tracker?

about your question, yes you can introduce your own zones.

I'll file it.


About the zones.

How exactly can I add my custom zones in a theme so they show up?

Pretty much the way you said, except that you also need to declare it in the manifest. Look at the theme machine (layout and manifest) for an example.
