New Default Theme for Phoenix

Tuesday December 24th, 2002

Arvid Axelsson's Qute is now the default theme in Phoenix, replacing the previous Orbit-derived skin. The transition to the new theme is mostly complete but a few changes still need to be made. The new default theme isn't in the latest builds yet, but here's a screenshot of Qute in the most recent nightly to give you an idea of what it will look like. Follow the thread in the Phoenix Themes forum for more details.

Update! The latest Windows nightly now features the new default theme.

Another Update! The latest Linux builds now also feature Qute as the default theme.

I also agree with Kovu. The grey looks, well, boring and drab while the icons don't have any coherence of style. I would rather have something as professionally polished as the Chimera theme. The background is a nice shade of white while the icons have a definite style and coherence. To me the Chimera theme is highly polished, and it is too bad there are none similiar.
