FISL talk

So yesterday I had my very quick talk at FISL 7.0 about Oxygen. It was the last talk of the day on a remote room so as expected there wasn't too much people. Local KDE supporters told me it would be different if "KDE" name was in the talk title. It was my first talk ever so I'm pretty happy about how things went. The questions I hade were most about differences with Tango Project and SVG icons. I've announced that the Oxygen team is going to meet soon at Pinheiro's place to work one week only on the icons and that a few more meetings are planned for next months. Goal is to make the base icon theme ready in end of July or at least in August. So, seems that end of summer is the deadline we give ourselves to put icons somewhere on SVN and start the final rush to version 1.0 with the help of the KDE artist community.

Does this Appeal to you?

After a long time I've finally updated the Appeal Project wiki site. I've changed color scheme to make the whole thing more pleasant to see and changed a bit the logo image.
The other good thing is that now it works with Opera on Linux, Mac and Windows, Opera 8.x for instance. It still looking horrible in IE6 but listen, listen: it works great with IE7-beta2. Hopefully most IE users will automatically switch to IE7 when it will be released.
So I'm happy now, the site is working with at least all last version of all major browsers.
p.s. There are a few problems with mainpage name and his link in the navigation sidebar. Will try to find somebody to fix that soon.
