Love this theme, absolutely a masterpiece! I'm trying to set this as my GDM3 theme, however it appears to be missing gdm.css. Would you have any plans to add this?

It's because I'm not using the arrow popup with the light versionm since you cannot do shadows on the arrow popup.

Nice theme!

Is it just me or is the highlight on apps missing if you open the overview, type in the name of an application and start navigating through the results using the arrow keys?

I really love this theme but I'm having one small problem.

The "Activities" text string is hanging off the left edge of the bar. Is there a way to fix this?

It seems like the "Activities" text string hangs off the edge of the bar at the top. Any pointers how I can fix that, or do I just need to wait for an update?

Thanks for all your hard work. I really love this theme.

I like the panel way better. Much more texture to it. This slave theme is really tight as well, but I miss the panel from your previous elementary theme. Sweet!

Is there a possible problem with the one I am using? How much different were they? The one I currently see is a little more gray than the previous. Seems a little flat and is rounded on the ends.

Yeah, it's kind of hard pinning down the elementary theme because it's changed so much. I've added my oh bits to the theme like the old version.

Well you've really been a huge contributer. Done a fantastic job, and gone out of your way to be helpful and even tried to teach people to do what you have learned. I guess I can let you off the hook on this one :)

Hi Sean! I was updating the rpm package and found a problem:

Well, you forgot to update the version of the theme.. Is it possible to update the version?

Thanks for LICENSE file. =]
