The Nautilus Elementary project was shut down in November in favor of Marlin - a new file manager, but many people are still using Nautilus Elementary so ammonkey, the Nautilus Elementary developer decided to bring it back to life and update it to version 2.32.2 for both Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat as well as for Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal:
Elementary GTK theme version 2.1 was released today, bringing support for GTK3. Other changes include: dropped Aurora engine, the panel is now dark by default and bug fixes as well as a new Xfwm4 theme.
A new Elementary OS video was posted a few days ago on YouTube, showing off some of the new applications: Slingshot and Plank as well as the already known Wingpanel (but which now is a full panel), Postler, Dexter or Midori:
Inspired by the Elementary theme and Bespin, Orta comes with some slick new elements to give your desktop a more polished look. The most interesting elements are the scrollbar - which even though look a like in Elementary, seem more polished -, the Nautilus Elementary breadcrumbs, buttons and the Gedit tabs.
Firefox Elementary theme can now be downloaded from Launchpad, through BZR. Thomas already started working on version 3.0 which includes changes to the tabbar, new graphics and it now recolors with the GTK scheme (of course, you could already use this Firefox theme with any GTK theme, but now it should integrate better)!
Today, a new project has been registered on Launchpad, called Rhythm-e. The project was registered by Ammonky - who's also behind Nautilus Elementary.
No code has been published yet (update: the code can be found HERE), but you can get an idea on how it will look:
It was mainly the Metacity theme who has been redesigned, as you can see in the screenshot below:
