Developer comments

The idea for this theme appeared after I started modifying the Aurora Aqua theme for personal use. Then I realised I wanted to change many other things in the code of the theme, added some details, used other engines... And when I noticed what I was doing, I had a new theme in my hands. So here it is. The Glow GTK theme is mainly based in Aurora, but it also requires the Clearlooks and the Murrine engines to work. Please let me know of any suggestion, critic, bug or whatever you wish to say. I hope you enjoy this new Glow.

From the version 0.1.0 on, Glow becomes a set of several themes, with 6 variations: Cinder (grey); Fire (red); Flower (pink); Grass (green); Sand (orange); and Water (blue). Each of these variations has two designs, light and dark. I'm still trying to test if especially the dark versions work well in all apps. The usual individual tricks you know from other dark themes may still apply. Let me know how it can be improved.

About GNOME:

GNOME is an international effort to build a complete desktop environment-the graphical user interface which sits on top of a computer operating system-entirely from free software. This goal includes creating software development frameworks, selecting application software for the desktop, and working on the programs which manage application launching, file handling, and window and task management.

GNOME is part of the GNU Project and can be used with various Unix-like operating systems, most notably Linux, and as part of Java Desktop System in Solaris.

The name originally stood for GNU Network Object Model Environment, though this acronym is deprecated. The GNOME project puts heavy emphasis on simplicity, usability, and making things "just work".


· GTK 2.x
· GNOME 2.x

What's New in This Release:

· Reverted all the Murrine widgets to Clearlooks because of issues with older versions of the Murrine engine; also learnt not to be too creative either.
