"For those of you who are interested in helping us test new features (or just like to get a sneak preview of things to come) there is an experimental Windows build with the new autocomplete widget and the new modern theme available at Please post theme feedback and autcomplete issues here until it is checked into the trunk."

Joe Hewitt wants to also let folks know that the new skin is only half way done, and to be gentle on him...

Well, this is much better than the first screenshot that was posted. It strikes me that the icons in mail-news were changed cause I remember those getting pretty good feedback. Still, I like the new icons. Four main things that I see that are still not "fixed" that got a lot of negative feedback:

1) The thick borders around the but browser buttons. 2) The two different looking toolbars (browsers vs. the rest) with different sized throbbers etc. 3) The sidebar tabs - most people I remember seeing feedback from think the old Modern 2 ones are much cooler (me included). 4) The dark widgets - but these were supposed to be fixed if I remember right. (I'm talking about the nearly black ones).

The color seems to have changed to a more blue (and lighter) one so either my monitor or the skin has been whacked into shape. Good job in any case. :)
