Re: New member

Hi Anton!
I like your work on New Wave. Welcome to the team!

We haven't made a concrete roadmap for 3.0 yet, but here are some ideas:

* New widget theme and cleaner appearance.
I think we need a new widget theme, and this is also something mentioned in the wider 3.0 plan [1]. It would be nice with something light and clean. The current look is a bit heavy with lots of bevels going on and lots of lines everywhere (not only related to the theme though). The other desktops (vista, osx, kde4) seems to go for a quite heavy and glassy look and it would be cool with something different from this (and what about making stuff green instead of the dominating blue?). This would also require to clean up our current cluttered appearance, #557469 [2] is a step on the way (once it get in), but I think we could do the same for button icons. A new theme might require a new engine, but a sane approach is probably design first and code later.

* New look & feel for the website.
The website looks quite nice compared to how it used to be, but I think think we should update and clean up a lot of the content to be more direct in our approach. This goes for the design as well and we need a couple of designers to create a design and suitable illustrations. I have a couple of ideas for this already, but we need to check what the people on marketing list have in mind first. Anyway, I would like to assign myself to work on this, anyone else?

* Icons.
Lapo and Jimmac have been working hard on new icons mixing the best parts of tango-icon-theme and gnome-icon-theme with lots of nice 256x256 icons. We need more of those.

* Other stuff
Stuff that probably needs some work: HighContrast icons, better sounds, visual design for dialogs, updated games graphics, visual help with the journal and shell, nice looking printed materials about 3.0 for conferences and fairs.

Any other thoughts people have on their minds and are interested in working on for the year up until 3.0?
