I can't seem to find any screenshots of Jaunty!
I do a search and I get screens of Intrepid it seems.

Does anyone know/have a link available?

I don't think much has changed. Heck, on the mailing list, we are still discussing which background should be used. ;)

Thanks... I thought I read on a blog somewhere that there was going to be some nifty notification bubbles added. That'd be fun!

The main goal of jaunty is speed so theme wise it will still be the same.

Speed Wise however it should be alot faster.

Right now there probably wont be any major in changes of looks just yet from ibex...
But I hope there is a decent theme for the beta's and the RC's, no more clearlooks!!!!

Developers should make new interfaces aplications to desktop,for example, Suse have a own menu.

No, Ubuntu doesnt need gimmicks like that, besides in my opinion SLAB menu sucks.

I got in on my laptop (which was probably a bad idea), but it's basically pixel for pixel Intrepid. So pop in the Ubuntu 8.10 CD and that's pretty much what you'll get. New wallpaper (and maybe UI) will come later!

I was under the impression that Mark wanted to completely redo the theme for Jaunty. I just don't thin we'll see it yet.

sabdfl put a video on his blog of the proposed new notifications:

He also wrote this:


Experiments are also not something we should do lightly. The Ubuntu desktop is something I take very personally; I feel personally responsible for the productivity and happiness of every Ubuntu user, so when we bring new ideas and code to the desktop I believe we should do everything we can to make sure of success first time round. We should not inflict bad ideas on our users just because we’re curious or arrogant or stubborn or proud. Despite being occasionally curious, arrogant, stubborn and proud :-)

It was mentioned on the mailing list that the Artwork team at Canonical are just getting used to working there, and are having a hard time even making conference calls. They are trying not to risk putting something bad out, so they are not putting anything out (for now) until the team is organized.

well they should get organized and fast, in my Ubuntu has to come up with its own unique look in terms of a theme engine and general look.
This obsession with clearlooks needs to end, I mean come on how many variations of clearlooks do you need before it becomes old and boring?
Clearlooks is fine for debian, debian does not call itself a modern distro like ubuntu does but ubuntu is meant to attract the new user and you cant attract people if you use a dull boring theme such as clearlooks.

ubuntu doesn't even use clearlooks. they use their own custom made theme called human that is based off the murrine engine.

Now I'm really looking forward to Jaunty.

I would prefer speed to some silly eyecandy that makes you giggle.[-X[-X[-X[-X

Not from what I have seen, it certainly looks a lot like clearlooks from my end.

It /should/ use Clearlooks; that theme engine is awesome. The selected widget highlights are soooo pretty!
(And if you want something a bit more fancy, Unity is great).

For me clearlooks is too old fashioned if Ubuntu's goal is to attract new users.
Clearlooks is fine on debian as I said but Ubuntu is supposed to be more modern so a more modern engine is needed I feel.

Actually, it uses Murrine-svn. It never went to clearlooks (the variant was made, but the Murrine variant made it as default).
