Re: Waterleaf icon theme

On a related note, here's a sampling of the new icons I'm working on for Amarok (amarok-trinity). They're a combination of icons already existing in Waterleaf as well as new work using the same style. So far, I have a full set of size 48 icons. I wanted to get some feedback before working on the other sizes.

Re: Waterleaf icon theme

They look great, absolutely. As mentioned earlier, the whitespace should be standardized somewhat, we are still working on a related document.

Thanks. Agreed on the whitespace standardization. These were technically built with the ElementaryOS standards for baseline, mean height, etc. just to try for a consistent look since they're all intended for one specific application.

I've updated the development branch with the full amarok-trinity ui icon set to include sizes 16, 24, 32, and 64 alongside the original size 48. Should be ready for testing if anyone's feeling up to it.

Thanks for taking the time to create this! I made some small modifications and uploaded the .gpl color palette file to the dev_guide folder for reference.

Re: Waterleaf icon theme

Thanks, we appreciate the updates.
As we have found a few regressions since the last stable release, we are going to open new reports at the GitHub issues tracker https://github.com/jaerrib/waterleaf-icon-theme/issues
At the same time we believe, the issue tracker could be the right and more transparent place for discussion on the Waterleaf theme.
We will also open an issue related to the developer guidelines, although it's not an issue itself, more likely a discussion workplace.

Re: Waterleaf icon theme

Thank you. I've been considering the issue tracker for some time, but it was early days. Now is probably the right time to start using it. That may help create a direction for the project as well. Hopefully, others will use the tracker to report bugs and papercuts.

Re: Waterleaf icon theme

Yes, another great release, we really appreciate such excellent work. At the same time we would like to invite anyone, who would feel a taste to develop and contribute in the Waterleaf project, for collaboration at GitHub https://github.com/jaerrib/waterleaf-icon-theme/ repository . It may be worth to try calling Trinity developers as well.

We will include the new Waterleaf stable releases into the upcoming Q4OS-4, based on Debian Bullseye. Q4OS-4 is now in preparation and should be available in a couple of months.

Q4OS-3 Centaurus will keep the current Waterleaf release to preserve an immutable experience for the current user base and follow the Debian philosophy to keep the OS as stable as possible.

Thank you for the praise. I'm learning a lot as I go, which is why I've stumbled here and there along the way. I would love to have others help out with the project. I've considered contacting the Trinity developers but haven't done so just yet. Incidentally, someone from the Papirus development team contacted me today with an offer of mutual assistance to generate full TDE compatibility for both Waterleaf and Papirus. It will be interesting to see what the future holds with that.

While it does sadden me somewhat that any progress made with the theme won't be available to average users until the next version of Q4OS, I agree on the Debian philosophy needing to be the guideline. After all, that's one of the selling points that attracted me as well. The delay also gives me a fair amount of time to continue polishing the theme. That said, is there an opportunity for backporting Q4OS-4 packages to Centaurus for users who want to opt in for such a thing? I think Debian does this more for applications than desktop or distro level stuff, but it's a thought.

Excellent. The Waterleaf Icons have really grown on me. I initially liked using the Crystal Icons when I first came to Q4OS, but now, I just have to use the Waterleaf Icons. Such a clean, well put together theme. Seems to mix well with whatever Colors, window decorations, cursor, etc. I choose to use. Not a lot of icons seem to.

Having access to the "evolution" of these icons regardless of my Q4OS version would be much appreciated.

I wasn't expecting that, but thank you all the same. In the interest of opting for stability over rolling-type updates, perhaps we could agree on a slower release cadence. For example, three or six months between releases instead of the monthly ones I was aiming for.

Yes, we agree, however development snapshots might be released for testing purposes time by time.

Just missing a full-stop (period).
