Nuvola Metatheme for GNOME 2.2

Hi all theme lovers,
Nuvola 0.0.5 Metatheme aka 'Beauty has her way' is released.
I have put together a new SVG based metatheme for GNOME 2.2. This one is
based upon the beautiful Nuvola icons by David Vignoni. 
It includes a special Nuvola GTK+ by Andrew Johnson using his theme
engine, smooth.
Also included is a Nuvola version of the GnomeIridium metacity theme,
the Nuvola version done by Josselin Mouette.
Anyway you can download the theme from the librsvg site, we have both
tarball and rpms:
P.S. There are some small rendering bugs on some of the icons, we hope
to have this fixed in the next release of librsvg.
