This is a port of the imetal OSX theme by AndyBlac . It uses the pixbuf engine so it's a little slow, but i couldn't make an accurate port without it.
Now that Azel is finaly completed and released, i managed to update imetal too ... There is only one theme now, if you want to use globalmenu with it , just open the gtkrc file found inside the theme folder and change the line (it's near the end) :
and reload the theme.
In order to extract the archive , change the suffix to tar.gz .
- Fixed a bug (introduced in v0.98) where the panel notifications are black.
- Network applet's wireless progressbars fixed.
- Fixed a bug (introduced in v0.97) where empty lists had a blue color.
- Evolution vertical mail preview mode list headers fixed.
- Thunar home toolbar button is now properly skinned.
- Tooltips color changed to blue.
- Some list header fixes.
- Banshee song tittle background fixed.
- Now the same theme works with or without the globalmenu. Just change
if you are using the globalmenu applet and hack.
- Added shadows to arrows.
- Combobox and optionmenu now look completely the same.
- Spinbuttons comboboxes and optionmenus now have the same arrows for a more consistant look.
- Toolbuttons changed.
- Metacity themes now have allot less aliasing and wider left and right borders in order to make resising easier.
- The selected tab on a notebook is no longer taller than the rest.
- Panel buttons are now the same as the regular buttons.
- Changed some shadows (shadow out).
- Menubar menuitem selector changed.
- Panel menu icon size redused.
- Mplayer skin added.
- Removed the clearlooks versions from the pack.
- Most of the tweaks for individual apps are now allot more specific in order to speed up the theme.
- Fixed a bug that caused the right side of Thunar address bar to become larger than the left when using certain icon themes.
- Changed the Thunar toolbar icons spacing.
- Gnumeric now looks as it should.
- gFTP now has full gradients.
- Fixed volume control sliders background color.
- Inkscape now has gradients. I still can't skin every Inkscape toolbar individualy (and i don't think it's possible) but if you hide one of the top 2 toolbars it should look ok.
- Changed the color of the rulers for the imetal-gradient version.
- Gnumeric, File Roller , Evolution and Synaptic non continuous gradient with imetal-gradient fixed.
- Epiphany has a round searchbox.
- Two new firefox skins with round adressboxes have been added.

- Evolution Task buttons changed from rounded to squared.
- Fixed a Nautilus bug with the toolbar and the non macmenu version.
- Fixed File Roller Toolbar for the non macmenu version.
- Changed the round addressbars.
- Included different rc files for toolbars with no text beneath icons. In order to use them, open the gtkrc file and
find the 'include "nautilus-tweaks.rc"' line near the end of the file. Change it to include "nautilus-tweaks-notext.rc" (only the macmenu version needs this change) and do the same for the 'include "epiphany-tweaks.rc"' line.

- Reduced Epiphany address bar height.
- Increased list header height.
- Create Launcher no longer inherits the panel background.

- Thunar toolbar buttons are now placed more symmetrically. They are nearer the left side of the window and have less space between them.
- Thunar adress bar height reduced, width increased.
- Fixed a bug that caused the right side of the Thunar address bar (the visited locations drop down menu button) to look like the left side of the address bar after pressing it. The button now always looks like the round end of the address bar (even when pressed).
- Changed the Thunar address bar arrow icon (see 1st screenshot).
- Slight change to the panel background.
- The menu bar applet and other panel applets that have a menubar now properly inherit the panel background.
- Fixed some problems with the xfce panel and applets. It should now be fully skinned.

As this is a port, i can't choose a license myself. I've acquired permissions for every piece of work in this pack that isn't (or part of it isn't) mine. If you want to use code from anything in this pack, please feel free to do so. If you want to use pixmaps though, please contact AndyBlac, the original author of the theme for OSX to get permission first.
