This summer we're expecting some big new themes! Following the recipe to base new themes on existing ones (maintenance!) we plan on making at least 2 new themes before the end of the year! This time, we'll proceed according to our user's preferences! Please take part in the poll at the end of the page.
We are also planning on reverse-engineer our Windows 10 themes into the MTAC, to avoid syntax errors that GTK doesn't like (see here). MacOS Cheetah and OS X Leopard will make a comeback in short, accompanied by the classic Mavericks theme.
As a side project, I may start a console-looking or an all-black theme (kind of like B00merang Blackout but based on MTAC)
Also, if you haven't checked our Fuchsia theme, here's how it's going:
As always, we've had more time to work on the project these last two weeks. A lot of bugs have been fixed and a new version of the Modular Theme Architecture is out (v0.5 - increased support for GTK 3.20). Because of this, the MTAC-based themes (XP, Longhorn, Unity8, B00merang Themes) are now fully compatible with GTK 3.20.
The Unity 7 theme has been repurposed since Canonical is apparently working on making ambiance work for Ubuntu 17.10. Therefore, we removed our GTK theme but left the SHELL themes (Cinnamon, Gnome-Shell) intact.
We expect to finish the adaptation of Longhorn Jade, the last remaining theme of the old Aero codebase (uncompatible with GTK 3.20) to 3.20. Then, maybe the Windows 3.x and 9x/Classic themes will also embrace the MTAC structure, since they have a lot in common with Whistler and Luna.
Have you heard of Fuchsia, Google's new Universal OS? If not, you may have the first contact with it through one of our themes! We are indeed planning on making and releasing a theme that will look as close as possible to what is currently available. We will update it when new details of the new interface are revealed.
Well, this concludes our monthly newscast, thanks for choosing B00merang and happy summer to all!
