Some icons are too blurred, unlike their Oxygen counterparts which are very sharp. Among the most noticeable are icons like list-add and list-remove. If you could sharpen up all of them or use the latest Oxygen ones, it would complete the professional look and feel of this otherwise excellent theme.

In most distributions, Oxygen doesn't contain the multiple sizes. So if applications like KTorrent need a 22x22 pixel icon (eg.for toolbar) and it doesn't exist it'll use the upper available icon, then KTorrent will resize them itself that it makes icons jagged. Also there's a bug that all of theme sizes (eg.16x16, 22x22) don't contain the all icons, so try the new version and if you still think the icons are blurred, resize them from 128x128 to lower sizes with your favorite software/filter.

Icons of the same size as counterparts in Oxygen were blurred in Blue Sora. I copied some of the commonly used ones from Oxygen. I will try the new version now as well, thanks.

What's really great about this theme is not the "blue icons", but the additions to Oxygen. The Kontact icons are fixed, the new Kate icon is great... Congratulations.

Icon are beautiful. Thank you very much for making them.

Probably what I want to ask you is too much (too big wish) but I'll ask you anyway :) Can you make icon theme which will change only folder icons? And folder icons to be without flowers and "blue sora" branding?
