What did you change? I am on a child theme with 2+ months of work behind me. I am not updating a theme where the developer says he changed class names. If it does not affect any CSS mods its fine, but I just could not tell just by reading the version.txt file.September 6, 2013 at 3:41 am #139706
Have you tried creating a child theme?

Like Mr. Sennbrink above, I too have a Child Theme, and I too am very concerned about this.
Your update says, “We have changed and added classnames in more than 30 files”… !!!
This could be a big problem with or without a child theme.
Please give us a list of the classes you have renamed and added, so I can do a search and replace on my Child Theme’s style.css and re-name the classes there to match. I have changed the styles of many classes via my Child Theme’s style.css. If those classes are renamed, then my styles will be assigned to class-names that no longer exist, so my styles won’t work.
I have built a large site on this theme, and added a lot of custom css. Without a list of the classname changes, I don’t know how I could make my Child Theme’s style.css work with the update.

We replaced all occurrences of entry-content with entry-content-wrapper, then we searched all files for “$content” strings and wrapped them into a div (entry-content). We further replaced all occurrences of post-title and main-title with post-title entry-title and main-title entry-title.
The reason is that entry-content has a semantic meaning (hatom feed) which is used by Google+ to fetch the article data of a blog page. the previous structure messed this feed up so we had to change it.
I copied this file list from our github repository:
