So it's been a while...

I'm so appreciative of all the interest and support for this project provided by the community. So I really do owe you another versioned released.

This is a bug-fix and icon-request release.

In the next 0.7.0 release, look forward to:

  • Complete folder-color support
  • Hardcode-tray support


Like last release, I won't list every affected icon (it's a lot!), but here's what went down:

  • Added lots of new icons
  • Redesigned lots of new icons
  • Normalized a ton of icons to follow our official design guidelines
  • Fixed a couple display / rendering bugs
  • IMPORTANT: added a window.svg which GNOME Shell (and possibly other environments) looks for as a fallback if no other icon exists. You need this icon on your system.

Hope you enjoy, and happy theme-ing!

It's finally here!

Thanks to everyone that submitted feedback on issue #162, I really appreciate it.
La Capitaine is really shaping up to be an awesome, complete icon pack, and it wouldn't have been doable without help from the community.

Roadmap from here on...

There are, at the time of writing this, 74 open issues in the Github issue tracker. Most of these are icon requests, and I'd like to get them when I can, but it likely won't be for a while. I'm heading back to uni for the fall semester this week, and I want to focus on more of my programming projects. I still plan on actively maintaining this project though — there is a lot more design work I want to do 😁

In the next few releases I want to address more icon requests and...

  • Add complete folder-color support
  • Add hardcode-tray support


This is a huge release so I'm not going to list every icon that was ever changed since v0.4.0. Here's the general list of changes:

  • Added lots of new icons
  • Redesigned lots of new icons
  • Reduced size of icon pack by a significant margin
  • Added basic folder-color support
  • Redesigned folders

Hope you enjoy, and happy themeing!
