Tux Machines (TM)-specific
A new default GTK and Metacity* theme for Gnome 3 landed in the Gnome Shell git a few days back. Called Adwaita it looks very similar to the design mock-ups displayed at GUADEC earlier this year.
The design – which is still a work in progress I hasten to add – adds a modern, light and clean feel to the Gnome 3 desktop.
Also relatively new are changes to the Mutter compositing environment – and these I cannot speak highly enough of.
