The 0.6 version is simplier, yet much better than previous ones.
You may look for sth different as a title bar. The current one is to blended and pale, it looks "sick". Currently, I combine it with "Lush" or "Wasp" titlebar ( which are from Gnome-extras themes ).
Also, radio buttons are too much blended, it should be less foggy. The ones from 0.5 version were better, but not very good either.
Scroll bar is a different class in comparison with 0.5 version. Two thumbs up!
Also you could consider modifying shadows on panels and toolbars, they start now in the middle on panel/toolbar and both edges are bright. It looks unnatural. Shadow IMO should be on the very bottom and maybe occupy the smaller area of the bar.
Dont keep us wait long for new versions :) Also, maybe provide some variations to choose from, as other guys do.

i think you should set the ysickness in the tabs section to "1" because that this lets the tabs look nicer

i really love this one!

some suggestions though, i don't particuarly like the tabs getting bigger when you click them, or at least not as much as they do now

the scroll bar can kinda get lost when it is all the way up or down, i keep seeing the light color as the bar, maybe some type of border to make the distinction stand out

This is a great theme!

Are you working on a new version? What changes will it include?

Also, any chance that this will be ported to cairo in the future?

Glad you like it.

I am still developing this theme-- I've just been very busy lately so I haven't dedicated much time to it. After the holidays expect a major update!

Next release should include:

- More scrollbar work-- mainly redoing the arrow buttons.

- I feel like the tabs need more work too.

- A colorpack - I'm going to start with a clean, boring black/grayscale pack first.

- the radio buttons and checkboxes need major work as well.

- I'm not sure what else.. suggestions for improvement are appreciated!

As far as porting to cairo, I'd love to at some point. Right now it's based on the pixmap theme engine, and I think to get the effect I want I'm going to have to use a different engine or build my own..? So to answer your question, yes, at some point I will port this to a different engine, and it would be excellent to make it a cairo/glitzy theme.. i'd love to add some animation a la the recent clearlooks animation hacks.

I can hardly wait...

Some suggestions maybe, a background color or texture for the menus would look good.

And some speed improvements would also be nice, but I guess that is because of the engine, the clearlooks one is faster, so if you port it at some point in the future, that will take care of itself.

Thanks for your excellent work.

Section One

I would first like to say that I liked your theme and that I wouldn't take the time to comment it otherwise.

Regardless of what I thought of your theme it seems to overload Xorg process in gnome ( most recent stable version from today ) . That wouldn't be a problem for most users, the only problem they would have is a ocasional performance loss. On the other hand, in my case, I am an user which doesn't like ( can't afford ) performance loss due to my system ( it has some hardware issues and can't get too hot ). So, if possible, i would like to suggest you to do a lighter, more useable, theme.

By the way I would also like to say that in other computers ( not this one ) i use your theme.
