Hi everybody, today the time has finally come to release Janguru
to the public. We spent the last few months working on this thing
and had a lot of fun trying out stuff that hasn't been the content
your Deviant Art suite would usually include, like testing acrylic blur, modifying typeface and making desktop applets with some cool transitions.
So, what took us so long?
Most of us have been incredibly busy during January & February with work, life and education. We did our best to balance it out and find some free time and work on this, and luckily we didn't have to put the suite on hold, although we did have to sacrifice some features in the process, but more on that later, let's get to the good stuff!
As you might remember, there were previews of gtk and gnome shell themes by niivu as well. Since these are not in the shape to be publicly available though, we decided it would be better to postpone those and perhaps work on them in the near future as a separate thing, with bigger support for more desktop environments. We can't guarantee a linux release, but I do think that might be my rice priority after this.
Other than linux themes, we also had to cut weather and calendar widgets hal-ullr is still working on.
These will be released very soon so stay tuned. They are finished and published as seen in the collection. burnsplayguitar will also be updating his AIMP skin to fix bugs and minor issues. To sum it up, release today is not a total collection of skins and themes we'd like the project to consist of, but we also didn't want you to wait any longer.
Roll the credits
This release certainly wouldn't be possible without the other authors so please thank them and follow their work if you haven't yet! They've brought their own thing into the original concept and put a spin on it to make it happen and often times better than what I had in mind it would originally have to be. Following the progress of their parts of the suite was very cool and fun and I hope we are going to this again in the future.
