    I just received an email notice that a new version of the swype is available. The improvements seem well worth it but I have my swype themed with metamorph. Does anyone know if the metamorph themes work with the new version?

    Just one thing to note: the first time I applied the metamorph theme and rebooted, it didn't take. So I used Root Explorer to go into /system/app and take a look at swype.apk and saw something I hadn't noticed when I moved it. The permissions were set at, I believe rw-rw-rw (I can't remember the exact pattern, but it was something like that). When I went in and corrected the permissions to r--r--r--, then applied the theme again, it worked fine after reboot.
