Estimado, el detalle del menú alineado al extremo derecho es excelente.
Era un detalle menor, sin duda, pero ahora se disfruta mucho más.
Gracias por el esfuerzo.

Saludos cordiales,

The file archive should be .tar.gz. Just rename it from .zip to .tar.gz.

Hi CM,

Just dropped in to salute the advent of 0.8. I'm always happy to see the theme going forward. All in all, 0.8 is an important achievement.

Thank you

Some serious thinking seems to be going on there about organizing the repo. I would say that the theme itself is more important than the slice and dice over what Git is capable of.
You can add a .iso archive as well if you want my opinion. Reason obvious. Ask ten people and you'll have ten opinions on how to organize it. Just upload it and let everyone organize it to his or her liking. Don't misunderstand me though. I value the effort over organizing the repo but ...

I understand your thinking. But the way the repo is set up now isn't what I intended. Now, with the help of Michael I can set it up like I would have liked to have it first.

I'm thinking on a rebuild of the KDE theme to include a panel instance, if you're interested in what could be new...

I'm always interested in what is new and your work is no exception. Obviously, Michael is a good advisor and more. Some of us might never go into the complexities of Git but for you, it might be the perfect occasion to get to know Git inside out. That kind of knowledge might come in handy for you in the future as well (e.g. in your career).

Upon reading Michael's suggestions, I have to admit that I was rather hasty in my thinking. All that actually makes sense to me now. I'm starting to get the hang of it. Git actually simplifies rather than complicate things and it's highly flexible as well. I was ignorant. That's all I can say.

OKAY.
Zerophase wanted menu more to the left; TechnoSparks wanted that other thing to the absolute middle. Done. That's repositioning to me. People, if any of you has an idea what would be nice and/or meaningful to include in 0.8 in order to bring it even closer to the "well-known", please don't hesitate and speak your mind. Further, if any of you was born with an artist's gene and created or think that can create artwork relevant to this project, please come forth! Thank you.

Might not be a bug, but it sure does feel awkward.

Cant the titlebar text be at absolute middle, just like other stock gtk themes?

As always, this is a very great work! :D

yeah, I had fixed it but it looked even more awkward to me (?)

nonetheless, I'll include a fix in v0.8

Just wondering where the absolute middle is. I assume you have a sense of humor.

xD Oh what I didn't notice I actually wrote that. In any way though when writing I didn't actually mean of anything. What is it that you find funny though?

What I actually meant is absolute center.

Please take no offence. Fun is a paradox. My sister, who has a good head for mathematics, oftentimes just simulates amusement.

Also, my sister and I have different opinions on where the absolute center of infinity is. That's off topic. Let's just drop it.

Hi CM,

What's going on? Will there be a 0.8? When? Please just post a short word about what to expect and when.

Thank you!
