Faience, a very smooth and beautiful GTK3 theme for the GNOME 3.6 desktop environment, has reached version 0.5.2.

Faience is still a work in progress, but it also contains GTK2, Metacity and Gnome-Shell themes, not to mention an icon theme based on Faenza.

As a side note from the developer, it only provides support for Gnome 3.6 and it needs Murrine (GTK2) and Unico (GT3) engines to work properly.

Highlights of Faience 0.5.2:

• Some bugs with Nautilus rubberband and dual-pane view have been repaired;
• The text color of items displayed on the desktop has been fixed;
• New arrows for inline toolbars and linked buttons have been implemented;
• Incorrect color of backdrop progress bars has been fixed;
• Invisible switches with non-english languages have been repaired;
• Dash launchers tooltip for right-to-left languages.

Download Faience 0.5.2
right now from Softpedia. Remember that this is a development version and it should NOT be installed on production machines. It is intended for testing purposes only.
