Hello Alexandre Vitorelli,
With Q1 2010 we introduced a major facelift for all 6 built-in themes in order to deliver a more consistent look and feel for all Silverlight controls. This was triggered after a lot of feedback concerning inconsistencies in the visual appearance among our controls. To address these we unified the templating approach and streamlined naming conventions for resources. All this came hand by hand with redesigning the appearance to achieve consistency in visuals. We are fully aware of the fact that introducing so big changes will affect the people who have heavy customizations or have built their own custom theme. We shipped an early preview with our Q1 2010 release and the majority of our clients were very satisfied with the new appearance. We are fully aware that this is one of the most unpopular steps but we had to take it to move forward and bring better quality and much better visual appearance of our products.
Using some of the old themes is no longer possible. You can restyle the current default one to get a closer look to the previous. Please let us know which are your main visual concerns with the current themes so we can assist you.
