Zenphoto development team change

Some of you may remember several months ago that I had a disagreement with the management of Zenphoto.org and said I would no longer be a part of the organization. I did modify that position slightly out of concern for Zenphoto users. I agreed to stay on through the release of the 1.4 6 version of the software.

Unsupported themes updated for Zenphoto 1.4.6

We have updated the hosted and unsupported themes except zpGalleriffic which is partly broken because of dependencies on outdated JavaScript tools. 

The major work was done by fretzl with some additional work by acrylian and sbillard. Special thanks to arnaud for his help with the zpSkeleton theme.

As always you can get them on our unsupported repository. You have to download everything and only use what you like. Please note that there still might be issues. If you use these themes and notice issues feel free to report them on the issue tracker of the repository. Even more welcome would be contribution via pull requests.
