ver 1.1.6 - Bug Fixes.
- Fixed bug where text wouldnt change to white when progressbar overlaped progressbar text.
- Fixed bug where some error and tooltip messages where shown with black text on dark background.

ver 1.1.5 - Many Updates!
- Storm, Ruby Red and Pink Ice color themes are now uploaded. Users can download the 3Pack and drop it in the theme manager window and enjoy all 3 color variations.
- Many hours went into refining the code base and the graphics of all 3 themes.
- No new screenshots will be uploaded to Gnomelook but you may view my picasa page link above to see much higher resolution images of all 3 themes or click the easy link below.

ver 1.1.4 - Color Update
- Ever got a new monitor and just then realized your color was shot on your old monitor? I did today! Theme color seemed to yellowish and was not supposed to be. Double check with a few friends and also on my slower eMac and noticed theme color scheme was way off from what I had intended. I set all the color to follow a more modern greyish scheme and this monitor is set at 6500k color.
- New screenshots are being posted so users may have to reload the webpage for updates to show.

ver 1.1.3 - Minor Update
- Corrected issue where GtkComboBox list box color was shown as black on black background. Changed to White.

ver 1.1.2 - Minor Updates.
- Fixed issue where horizontal line (menu separator style) wouldn't show on some drop down menus.
- Few minor adjustments to button insensitive state colors so they don't appear as bland.
- Uploading a screen shot of TWF to show minor adjustments only.

ver 1.1.1 - Minor Updates.
- Small Adjustment to background color.
- Worked on the clarity of the task bar application buttons.
- Corrected Drop-Down-Menu overlay stretch border distortion on large stretch.
- New screenshots :-)

ver 1.1.0 - Big Update!
- Theme now includes a complimentary GTK1 theme, in addition I have also put together a slick GKrell Monitor theme that is also included in the theme file.
- Metacity theme was totally reworked into a more refined look that should look more professional as well as elegant to the user.
- Radio and Check buttons contrast has also been adjusted for more clarity.
- New screenys being posted as well.

ver 1.0.8 - Many new changes!
- New drop-down-menu Check and Radio buttons have been added to help with contrasting to the dark menus.

- Reverted back to the original title/menu bars style. They fit better with the new additions.
- Fixed handle active/prelight where the handle went white and the user was unable to see it.
- New Screenys to show changes.

ver 1.0.7 - Slightly changed the Title and Menubar images. Old files are still included for those who prefer the old style. In addition new screenshots have been uploaded.

ver 1.0.6 - Dropdown Menus now updated with same design but now using higher resolution graphic. 64px --> 256px. Original lower resolution graphic still included for those have slower systems and possible slower render problems.

It looks really great but I think that the window color does not fit with the other colors. Thanks for the recommendation of my icons. I feel very honored. :)

TY for the comments. :-)
I set down for over a week working on the colors. I made a list of things I didnt want. Didnt want a M$ color scheme, didnt want to bright on the eyes, didnt want it to dark also and last didnt want it grey because I felt that had been over done.
So after a few days between work, sleep and family time I decided on a light cream color and black metacity frame. The blue (now more teal) was a bit tricky. I think I changed it 8 times before I settled on a blue/green mix that was pastel enough to fit snuggly in with black and a light cream color.
What I came up with was a color scheme really unique and not bad on the eyes. :-)

It's ok. About taste can not argue. Perhaps it would be better if the color could choose? :)

This theme along with the LaGaDesk-BlueNight icon theme kicks major butt! Thank you very much for this theme.

TY very much for the positive comments. BTW can you link the icon theme you mentioned? The Gnome theme goes fairly well with the theme, but they can be lackluster at times. :-)

...although I think I'd use a slightly lighter shade of teal instead of gray on the moused-over menu items. Excellent work though, I must say I like this one.

TY :-) First theme I have released in almost 2 years. I am warming my hands back up. I am fixing to upload a updated theme with solid black menu. The Blue was getting over whelming when I started trying out other backgrounds. No fear tho I included a half dozen gimp xcf files so users may customize it to their liking.
