Hey, wow, that theme looks great! I love the header!

Maybe you could make some more gradient effects (but very"small" and decent) on the sidebar items?

That blue color is great!

Bestregards,

Actually I meant the gradient bar only in the headers of the sidebars, so the box with "calendar", "archives" and so on - not the whole side. I agree that this is too much. :)

I really like the colors! The look really vibrant...looking forward for the final version to put online! :)

We are currently trying to not include any new themes in the serendipity release itself, so I would add it as an additional theme!

People will be able to download it from our CVS repository and through spartacus. The theme should be available in a few hours, and I'll announce it on blog.s9y.org!
