Third update to the Ubuntu Light Themes

Canonical

on 10 September 2010

Still Andrea Cimitan, still good news for you 🙂

This is a small blog post to list few of the changes we did to light-themes:

  • Menuitem speedup, hurray!!! 😀
  • Subtle shadow on inactive notebook’s tabs
  • White text color on GtkProgressBar
  • Increased visibility of the resize gripper
  • Fixed contrast applied to elements in GtkStatusbar
  • More compatibility with custom color specified in Appearance Preferences
  • Increased contrast between text and background
  • Tweaks to the odd row color inside GtkTreeView

I really hope to see the updated packages in maverick soon.

As always, we appreciate your feedback. It’s important keeping the good communication we are establishing with you: if you notice, some of the changes came from your precious comments 😉

See you soon guys, and enjoy your weekend!
