"Metatheme alpha release 0.5.0 (code-named "Ogling Octopus") has been released. This represents the first preview release of the gnome meta-themeing system. I'd like to personally thank Helix Code for sponsoring metatheme development this summer."

"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."

"Cool features:

  • Automatic theme updates/installation via themes.org or similar theme repositories. (currently only themes.org and generic http supported)
  • Theme switcher capplet
  • Integrated theme editor
  • Plugin-based theme extension system, current plugins are:
    • Background
    • Gtk+
    • Sawfish
    • XMMS skins"
