Just wondering if we could see a preview of either of these themes and maybe get an ETA?

I know themers have pretty much stopped showing previews and such because of the ungrateful masses but maybe if everyone promises to behave themselves we could have a peak?

As far as I know swiz is waiting on SS 1.5 or so for JetBlack because the text color with the current SS version make it very hard to use.

It is true that I would like to wait for SS 1.5 befroe I release JetBlack but if that is really far off(2months or more) I will release it without 1.5 being out. The biggest thing is that I have been bombarded with paying work. JetBlack is 100% complete as a theme but all the icons and app skins are holding it back from release right now. Its not too far off though.

GarageBand is still a concept at this point but that theme shouldnt take long since it will be using Max's Aqua controls (sliders and any other Aqua elements used in GarageBand- Thanks again Max ). Im sure with all of the varying opinions on GB's interface there will be about 5 variants which will follow the intital release.

You will have a readily available preview of JetBlack when I launch the new studio site in a week or two.
I'll post back here at that time with an update.

Thanks for the interest.

Cool, I'm working on a new site too.
Give me a heads up before you release JB so I can finish my desktop for it. It shouldn't take long, but I've been distracted.

Disgusting! We demand it now - your schedule be damned! Your teasing is driving us to tears! Our lives cannot continue until you release it! Release it now, finished or not! It should be finished by now! You suck!

I don't have any JetBlack theme news, but I have been making an extra to go with it that will be announced in one week! Or maybe two weeks. You will all be so surprised that you'll fall off your chairs. It might be a week and a half.

I love the U.S., but we need some time apart.

what would be a nice fit is if the creators of the snow theme would invert the icons to black... that would be hella smooth. they go well with the milk themes. prolly my fav icon set...

That looks freakin' nice! The metal window gradient makes me say "wubba wubba".

I like the new site design too, Swiz. Gonna be cool when you've got the MT stuff up.

I didn't know you spoke php.

Theme should be renamed 'vader's hat'.

A must have theme - to be sure.
A true dark classic...

Im guilty of that, it was the old JetBlack "Home" folder icon but has since been replaced with something much nicer.
