Color UI (1.5.1 RPF 2 Build 19)

Color UI was originally posted on GNOME-Look, if you want to see the page I originally posted it on, you can find it by following this link -> !

Color UI was made with maximum usability in mind, from the window borders to the color scheme, Color UI was made for the user who wants an elegant simple theme that does not look broken. If any part of Color UI has any problems in any of the things I listed as this theme supporting, please notify me in the comments and I will try to fix it ASAP! Feedback is always appreciated, if it was not for feedback how else would Color UI improve.

I'm gonna  to install in my machine. It's amazing ^^
It should be very useful to have on unity panel user name font color and unity panel clock name font color to be white considering that (on the other side) windows menu font color need to be dark on gray color of the windows top border.
This two colors are now the same (the unity panel clock/name font color and the windows menu font color)

Hope you keep updating this very good theme

great! Thank you.
Updated zip file to actually contain the changes in this version, sorry about that!
Do you think it would be worth it to make a GNOME-Shell theme for this?!
Why did I even ask, I was planning on implementing it anyway!
Thanks for the feedback will release an update with this fix included!

There's a small bug in Unity, the font in the titlebar is white, and hard to read, here's a screenshot:

I've modified the theme (unity.css), so it works now:

here's the css file:
