New collaborations on the way...
As time goes on and we push more and more themes (mainly OS X ones), some other projects we have are getting less attention (Windows 10, XP, Whistler...). so instead of just removing them, we've asked for help. the results will be a new Windows XP pack when CinnXP creator will have finished development on his themes. Meanwhile, we continue to offer our WinXP theme pack, and though multi-DE compatibility is not yet defined for the long term, the future XP themes should support a wide array of DEs.
We are also working with him for a new modular architecture to create icon themes (mainly, the new LinXP icon theme, based on WinXP and YlmfOS icon themes). Work has already started and we plan to offer a superior icon resolution than previous icon themes thanks to icon vectorization.
The B00merang Project will collaborate with Github user LinxGem33 to create a flexible and modular theme architecture and base for multiple derivatives. The base theme is called 'Neon', but we are still in very early development stage. More info will be given as the project continues in the development process.
Also, we announce the freezing of the development cycle for homebrew themes. Don't worry, already available themes will still get support & updates, we are mainly stopping to create new themes, at least until we take some of our workload off (CinnXP will remove the equivalent workload of seven (7) themes). Also, since we've been releasing a lot of similar themes (Cheetah, Leopard, Mavericks) it is unevitable some will be less popular than others, and we will have to drop support for them to focus on 'popular' themes.
Development of new themes is stopped for two main reasons:
So, if you want to help, don't hesitate to contact us!
