[Selene-theme] 3.4.3 had been released!!

Hi guys. :)

Today I've released selene-theme 3.4.3!

Yeah this version has "almost dark" appearances... :P

So why now I've been addicted to this dark theming? That's exactly simple. Because there's only a few themings for dark appearance today... and a bit more words, lots of themes seems to get "fork" from "Mac OSX" like "light-theme"... Oh no...

I could say that "If you guys want such Mac's theming, Use Mac!!"

I could accept for that Mac's theming and that's really beautiful and eye-friendly, right. But We're living with Linux, isn't it? :)

And especially on Ubuntu, Ambiance default theming seems to become better and better at least on both Precise and Quantal. If so, the guys "Ambiance lovers" also may be able to accept this Selene especially for dark-menus, dark-window-frames, and dark-sidebars. But one thing... Selene would never apply for that "Orange" color schemes!! So sorry guys!! :P

On couple of years ago, We well knew "Atolm" gtk2 theming, you know. I loved that, too!
So now what?  I love elementary so much...

In this release, still gtk2 theming didn't finished completely and might have some minor bugs, But anyway I would sync gtk2 theming with gtk3's one ASAP. :D

[GDM 3.4.1] Today I've bumped GDM to 3.4.1!! :)

Hi all GDM lovers... :)

Today my sleepless nights could be stopped!
Yeah new some hunted patches could solve my GDM's  "login loop" bug appeared on 3.2.1...

Oh Thank God! :)

A couple of days ago, I visited gdm git place, then today, I've found some "daylight" patches to be able to help us, And soon I've applied those patches, finally an ugly fxxkin' issue was gone.

Just now my Launchpad PPA seems to build these packages to deliver this version to you guys. So please wait for it, and give it a try!!

On this period, I named the version "3.4.1-0ubuntu1~tista1~precise". Yeah the latest 3.4.1 had come to our Ubuntu from my PPA... But to be honest, especially for us (means geeks who lives with ConsoleKit/PAM),  3.4.1 didn't make huge differences with 3.2.1.. ahaha!! :) Anyway I now believe "newer is better", are you?

Best Regards,

Window-List Extension is back on Gnome-Shell 3.4.x... :)

Been a while guys...

Now I'm patching Window-List Extension to work properly on Gnome-Shell 3.4 series.

OK now it seems pretty good. :)
(you guys could see the weird mouse pointer background, but it might be something wrong on screen-shot application, I don't know.) But anyway ASAP I would commit those patches to Kurt Rottmann. :-)

Though just I'm living with ThinkPad X121e & Precise, then on this weekend, I would move to QQ?! ahaha!! Because Gallium 0.4 on AMD PALM is fantastic and kernel 3.4 worked pretty well...

Yeah ThinkPad forever... :)
