May 2015 Wrap Up!

May 2015 Wrap Up!

And that’s a wrap! May is nearly over. We have worked extra hard to bring you 15.04/GTK Ports/Updates to Ambiance & Radiance Flat Colors, Ambiance Blackout Colors, Ambiance Blackout Flat Colors. We are happy to have these done and out. A Huge thanks goes to and Umair He really out did himself and helped us get these themes packaged and released within a matter of hours of them being done.

We also had an amazing opportunity and where asked to to collaborate with the Kali Linux team (A Pen and Security Distro). And create a new look and feel for the upcoming Kali Linux. The new build (Coming Soon) Is really amazing and exciting as it uses the GTK 3.14 toolkit and has a slew of amazing tools. We ended up working to create a custom Icon Theme, GTK Theme, GnomeShell and GDM Theme for the new Kali.  

Whats next? We are going back into "Our Cave" to do some R&D and some new stuff. We have prototypes of two new icons themes (no promises about one of them though the dynamics need to work.) And are considering prototyping a new flat Mint-X Theme like theme. And of cource more updates to Vibrancy.

Another thing on the docket is investigating GTK 3.16 Support. We may go independent from stock ambiance and roll our own GTK newer version support. So we don't have to be a build behind. (Stock Ubuntu and Debian are. but honestly they make up a large majority of our user base so its fine in some respects.)

Lots of things to do. On top of this we continue to monitor and fix any issues that may arise.

Thank you to everyone for their support and donations you help us do this!
