New gedit logo

As announced by nacho, we have been looking for a new logo for a while. We had many interesting submissions and iterated through a couple of designs, borrowing ideas here and there. Thanks to all those who sent us their work!

Not only the new logo is already committed, but you can even wear it :)

    I’m wondering if such stuff couldn’t also get under the http://www.zazzle.com/gnome umbrella.

    Yeah, that would be great!
    I’ll look around and see if there are other app icons we can add at the same time and create a App-merch-category.

    Great work! Though I am not a big fan of glossy and name-based icon.

    Hm, I still don’t get why gedit is the only (?) GNOME application that needs its own logo and doesn’t simply use the GTK stock icon…

    @Jones Lee: Well this is not an icon, it is the logo

    @nacho: for the sake of HIG conformity, IMHO, gEdit should use theme text-editor app icon and fallback to the logo if there is no icon found.
