Hybrid Theme is out with a new version 0.9. You can read about the new release at the ThemeHybrid blog post, Hybrid theme version 0.9.
One thing that is an absolute must is to be running WordPress 3.1. The upgrade is as simple as bumping your existing hybrid theme directory (granted you made no changes to the core files) and replace it with the unzipped Hybrid 0.9 download.
The upgrade takes about 12 seconds, give or take a few tics. So, to unlock these great new features of Hybrid Theme, take a minute or two to make the upgrade.
