Metatheme 0.6.0 Release Notes

Hello theme lovers!

Metatheme 0.6.0, code-named "Braintree", has been released.

What is metatheme?
------------------

Metatheme provides a way for users to save and restore snapshots of
their system's current theme configuration. This allows one-click 
simultaneous changing of background image, Gtk+ theme, Sawfish window
manager theme, and so forth.

What has been changed in this release?
--------------------------------------

* Complete user-interface revamp by Anna Dirks.
* No more hacky metatheme-installer. Future theme dependencies will be
handled via Red Carpet. Additionally, theme creators can simply
distribute
all components of their theme in one single directory.
* New plugin API to handle GUI editor configuration.
* New example theme "Ximian South" by Jakub "jimmac" Steiner.
* Bug fixes galore.

Requirements:
-------------

control-center, gal, libxml

Availability:
-------------

* Binary packages in Red Carpet channel "Ximian Preview"
* Source tarballs:
