The uploader of the official WordPress theme directory has received a rather helpful upgrade courtesy of Otto. The previous version of the WordPress theme uploader checked the themes against the theme review guidelines, but only reported the first error that it encountered, sometimes trapping theme developers in a frustrating cycle of trial and error.  The new version performs an even more intensive scan of the theme and returns a list of all results, providing theme developers with a handy to-do list to get their themes up to spec for the directory. Have you submitted a theme with the new uploader yet?  Does it help to streamline the process?  If you haven’t uploaded your themes to the official directory, does the new uploader inspire you to give it a try?

It is available through http://wordpress.org/extend/themes just like the plugin directory and has all the features and infrastructure support of the WordPress Extend umbrella. The look of the plugin area has also been maintained to provide a familiar feel. That being said, there are only a few themes on the new directory. You can upload your themes by just logging into the Theme Directory using your WordPress.org username and password and following the instructions and meeting the requirements on the upload page. The theme upload process is mostly automated except for a manual review. When you upload your theme, you should expect to receive an email (soon after uploading your theme, email reception times may vary) saying that your theme is waiting to be reviewed.
