Major changes include Sunken Aqua variations, squared window corners and matching Safari skins. Get it all from Max Themes.

I've been without a square cornered, no stripes, DLTA format ThemeChanger compatible theme since 10.3 was released.
Now I also have a themed login panel and time menu, things that can't be done with SS.
Thank you Max!

Very nice, the new buttons look much cleaner, more glass like. Once you use this, it's hard going back to widgets that stick right out at you.

Nice work.

A really great theme, but I wish there was a version without the silver metal appearance.

Great theme Max!
The Safari bug is still there, but It doesn“t really matter since I“m running Safari in Aqua now. Looks great! Thanks for the Safari skin btw!

This is my all time favourite theme!

Any chance of grey push-in iTunes buttons for the Finder? Instead of the Aqua buttons.

It's not my intention to remove the Brushed Metal texture from Metal apps, that is a tradeoff with the current version of ShapeShifter. It allows you to make colored metal appearances, but it removes the texture. This will be fixed in the next update of SS.
So if you like the plain metal appearance, sorry, but it's was not my intention and it wont stay.

Dace- the Brushed theme have such buttons, you can easily combine the themes once it's released.

Sorry, I wasn't very clear. I was hoping for the elimination of metal altogether, like with your Milk theme.

Aha ok. That's not one of my goals either, so to speak. I just want to improve upon Aqua and if I removed the Metal you would get inconsistencies with iTunes, Quicktime, iPhoto and iMovie.. But I'd recommend Metallifizer for a metal free appearance, once it's done.

Shouldn't your Finder buttons have blue behind the down arrow? Like in Jaguar.

I remember when you released Brushed in Jaguar, you left the blue on the white sunken plastic buttons even though I told you blue was only for pressed state. Now Panther has a metal Finder and Apple proved me right, no blue behind the down arrow (only for pressed state). Now you Aquafied the buttons and forgot to place back the blue behind the down arrow.

I would have had blue behind the arrrow if the resources allowed me, but since there is only one regular state for Path and Gear buttons, they would still be blue if you chose Graphite.

I interpreted the plastic buttons, so to speak. Since apple use an blue edge for the regular buttons, why should plastic buttons be any different?
