Re: Nodoka 0.7 beta 1 released



Hey :)

A few opinions on it. I haven't commented on every change because that
would be dull boring for everyone reading "awesome" a lot :)

I like these very much! Really nice width and look very sleek - much
more than Oxygen scroll bars (though I like the solid colour on Oxygen),
might be cool if they were a more solid colour when you hover them too
but that's my opinion (lol this is art right, it's all going to be
subjective!)

I'm not sure about this either - although it differentiates it from a
combo box it maybe looks incosistent?

I really like the idea of the midnight version...only thing is it looks
a little bit messy in real world use - maybe this can't be helped with
this palette, probably not going to be so subtle as the others. 

I can post a screen shot of where I think this is particularly obvious
if you like, or you could try it in a busy evolution window yourself...

Two feature requests as well, maybe you're interested in doing this at
some point, or maybe there's a better place to post them? Better theme
for the panels would be *awesome*, i.e. something other than plain grey;
also, maybe a slightly more interesting look for the menus, rather than
just boxes? I don't even know if these are possible! 

All in all, great work :) 

Best wishes,

Jon
