    Transparency maybe, but not too much of it. The panel would look better if it was a little bit flatter. And the decoration of the menu when hovered should not extend outside the panel.

    Hmm - maybe I should look as resurrecting this theme and providing an update. So, transparency appears to be a favourite - any other requests ?

    I just downloaded this and am going to stick with it, so no interest has not died! A transparent menu would be nice. Maybe the other drop down applets too. No big deal.

    Wow - I thought interest had well and truly died for this theme, as it was originally written for 1.4 - am also surprised that it works correctly with 1.6. What elements would you like to see transparent ?

    Work fine on Cinnamon 1.6! Please, make it transparent too! ;^)

    Thanks for the comments guys, and sorry for my lack of activity - life is very busy at the moment ! I've taken the comments from mordant23 and pharmville, and will hopefully add these items soon. In the meantime, I'm working on a new theme - not ready for prime time just yet, but will be released as soon as I have it completed.

    My favorite theme so far. The only two things I would change: Make the mint menu, calendar, etc slightly transparent background. Keep it slight, but noticable. Change the hover for the menu, calendar, etc (as mentioned above), because the solid grey seems out of place, as does the lack of gradient. Maybe using the same hover as the panel launchers, would make it look better. Otherwise, it is perfect.

    The only thing I would recommend as an improvement is the hover for the panel buttons such as menu, calendar, workspace switcher, etc. I love the hover for the window list and the panel launchers.

    5 stars. I love the gradients and it's nice to have themes based on colors other than black or white.

    This is the first purple theme I have ever tried that I liked. Very nice!
