Hi all,

Congratulations on the new release. However, it can no longer find the Oxygen theme for icons or sounds--I've had to revert to the default. I installed the Oxygen stuff according to the instructions here (, and it worked with 0.96.6. The "new version" dialog mentions a "redesigned theming directory structure" -- could that be the cause of the problem? Can someone document this so I can get the Oxygen theme re-installed correctly?

Yes you are right, that's the cause. I'm updating the Oxygen theme for the new directory structure and file names, plus I'm adding more and updated Oxygen icons. This will take some time though and I can't promise when this will be ready.

I nearly have an updated version finished. If you want to beta test it, just send me an email.
