Lucidity 2.4 Preview
Lucidity 2.4 will change the way Lucidity modifies your desktop with the addition of smooth monochrome icons coloured in the Lucidity palette. Also, the window buttons have been redesigned and remade yet again from the ground up to match more with Lucidity’s new monochrome icons’ style. It is hard to tell when I will have it ready for release, but I would like to share what I have done so far.
Colours! This is done both for the sake of aesthetics and accessibility for average computer users. The differing icons make it easier to discern what does what, and the colours allow for colour recognition. The red colour will also appear in the icon set’s close button and other areas.
:New Monochrome Icons:
In this screenshot you can see the new, smooth monochrome icons within Nautilus. There are still many icons to be made, and I will be modelling which icons will be monochrome based on which ones are monochrome in the Faenza icon set as a base. The icons will be available in sizes 24×24 and below, in interest of only affecting toolbar buttons and etc, allowing for Lucidity’s partner icon set to define the look and feel of the non-toolbar icons.
The ETA on Lucidity 2.4 is likely not for a month or so, depending on how much time I have to work on it and my level of motivation. I want to be sure I am properly motivated in order to assure maximum quality for the icons. Light versions of the icons will be produced for the dark icon set, of course.
Update: Things are moving a bit quicker than expected, and Lucidity 2.4 may be ready for release within the next week or so. Here is yet another screenshot of the new icons in action.
