gtk-engines 2.7.1 [ unstable ]

gtk-engines 2.7.1 released last night – a true 11th hour effort by myself and Richard. This release includes several important fixes for Clearlooks for anyone using 2.7.0.

Tarballs in the usual place:

I am still looking for developers to adopt-an-engine. No cairo work has started on the following theme engines:

  • hc (high contrast)
  • Industrial
  • lighthouseblue
  • metal
  • smooth
  • thinice

This means these themes will have no cairo goodness for GNOME 2.14 unless someone else helps out – there just isn’t enough time for me to convert them all myself! If you’re a developer with an interest in themeing then please do contact me.

  1. I’d like to give some cairo love on lighthouseblue (I used it as my first gtk theme on GNOME 2.0, and I remember it with fondness before switching to clearlooks); looking (and poking) at the source, I see that most part of the patch would also mean some whitespace and code clean ups. If that’s okay, I’ll begin working on it ASAP.

    Yes, please do. If you don’t have a cvs account feel free to send patches directly to me.

    There are also a number of bugs open at bugzilla relating to lighthouseblue, so feel free to work on those too.
