Description:

After a few solid months of work, Tango Generator 3 is out. While it still lacks support for additional applications, it's a vast upgrade in terms of usability, reliability, expandability and icon coverage. And, as planned, it's out in time for Christmas (just)!

This release includes the following major changes:
Nearly 10 more icon themes - pushing the total up to 24.
Hundreds more icons drawn specifically for the generator.
Updated and expanded icon themes.
Improved usability - for example, themes can now be ordered via drag and drop, and ordering won't be broken due to accidential sorting.
Support for Gnome 2.20.
Support for distribution branding.
Detection of required binaries.
An entirely rewritten core: faster, more stable, more reliable and more efficient.
A far more extensible structure - expect to see more rapid updates and more complete application coverage.
Support for the saving, loading and distributing of theme configurations.

Note: To make use of updated packages, run 'rm -rf ~/.tango-generator/archives/*.tar*' before first run.

Please enjoy the app and, if you have time, have a look around the site. If you'd like to give something back, check out the 'Easy Contributions' link below.

fedora icons provided by tango generator are ugly in 16x16, 22x22 and 24x24.

http://stephenbrandt.com/tango-icons/fedora/ - here are, probably, original icons, which are 100% better than yours.

and question: will you send your changes to the icons and self drawn icons upstream?

gnome-theme-extras or something like that contains eg foxtrot icon theme. you should send your changes.

The smaller fedora menu icons have only recently become available and will be updated in the next release. I'll certainly send all my original icons upstream when I have the time, although I'm too busy to get into it right now (I'm collaborating in cases where I've been contacted but not actively filing bugs etc. at the moment).

I found a problem, when creating an icon theme it wasn't running gtk-update-icon-cache on the created theme so my gnome apps were taking twice as long to start.

I've previously held off doing this since I haven't noticed any real performance differences on any of my hardware/virtual machines and it can cause problems in rare cases. It's not a big problem to fix, however, and I think the generated icon themes have improved to the point that I can include this in the next release.

After trying this on my OpenSUSE partition it works fine without the cache, might just be an Ubuntu problem

it seems there's trouble with some servers.

lsof|grep tango|grep IPv4 gives me:

TCP 192.168.0.2:22367->salvus.net:http (CLOSE_WAIT)

TCP 192.168.0.2:sdo->ns11.altervista.org:http (ESTABLISHED)

without effects. Nothing's happenin'.
Change servers, please...

Hi, my best compliments for that useful app!

There is, anyway, a strange behaviour that i don't undestand: if i use the 'plain' gion icon theme, the openfolder in a nautilus tree view is coerent with the theme, if a build a tango generated theme with gion on the top of the list, the open folder is different (only in the left panel), ugly and incoerent with openfolder style of the gion theme.

Is there a trick to avoid this ? (copy a 'plain' gion theme in a tango generated folder don't work)

I'll look into that - it's most likely an icon which Gion's left in the wrong directory. Thanks for the information.

I think this is an amazing idea.
Hopefully, the ubuntu artwork team includes such a wonderful idea.

Thanks for the kind words. As you can see, there's now a .deb package available for Ubuntu although I'm not sure if it's up to the packaging standards for multiverse inclusion.

You need to progress through the generator until there's an open button. I haven't currently implemented loading in the way you tried.
