I want to join the team but I'm afraid that I can not spend more time to help design the application demo because I 'm busy for my projects. I don't want to make delay to Yii release because I can't finish the application demo design on right time.
I attach a draft design of Yii homepage. It's just a draft with minimum graphics and style. It just show the layout of homepage.

Logo still in progress so there is no logo in design
On 3 color box (get started, feature, & from blog) will replace with some picture.
The blue box that show performance highlight will show like a slide. I think it will show
*easy to extend from extensions
*component tag like date input
*best feature like built in validation, active record, JQuery widget, cache, etc
Suggest and comment are welcome..

as a not-at-all designer here are my remarks :
- simple and clean : efficient
- typo (I don't like this font)
- header could be higher
- blue color is too flashy on the right colum boxes borders
hope this helps

great job Wanderson !!

Those are great designs, but to me the mirror effect in the buttons cause me immediate eye discomfort. This might be purely psychological, though.
(Back in university days I had a lot of problems with eye strain and could not read for more than one or two hours before lines began to separate. Problems actually went away totally when I abandoned the (complicated) glasses in favour of plain spherical contact lenses. But obviously I'm still afraid it might reappear)

between 3 and 4 it's hard to choose, both are really elegant (what about the backroung of 4 with the 3 ? )
Another thing is, the font-color for post title, "recent post" and "newly added extension" is (in my opinion) too flashy and not comfortable for reading.
great job again !

Layout 4 has a nice looking header, the menu bar is great, the logo is more rounded but I have a small preference for the dark and elegant layout 3 (with its nice green demo button)... however I prefer logo from layout 4.
..and again this blue is too flashy for me

One question : is it on purpose that only the "download yii" box is shadowed and the 2 others are not ?
(small blue title remain too flashy and not easy to read imo)
good Job again !
