The style package you can find it here https://download.phpbb.com/pub/release/ ... .0-RC6.zip
the style it separately from the phpBB package.

No. Subsilver has the main/basic features but that's about it. We don't plan on changing it much from what it currently is nor updating it further. It will be completely abandoned when 3.2 comes out, or at least that's the plan.

That's not to say that someone from the community won't pick it up and update it.

EDIT: Please also see my point here: https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtop ... #p13767941

Such a shame that subsilver is going by the way side, on my Forum I include it as a choice but my default is prosilver but 80% of my users have switched to subsilver! It's still so popular. Sadly taking it on myself is beyond my talents! I do actually prefer ProSilver myself but the masses on my Forums seem to prefer SubSilver.

Something tells me you are going to have a whole lot of upset people if you abandoned Subsilver including me, I know a lot of people who still use it, I do not understand why the very fist template is being so neglected and not being brought up today that simply does not make any sense, I think I will be sticking with 3.012 if that is whats going to happen...

This was decided about 2-3 years ago and was even announced to the community. The feasibility of maintaining two styles makes even less sense than not maintaining it anymore and is why the decision was made to remove it. Like Marshalrusty said someone in the community can pick it up and I believe someone has made a subsilver lookalike based on prosilver.
