Heh! About time... :D

Last major change to Ubu’s icon set occurred during Ubuntu 9.10 (3 years ago)

About time :-)

The current icon theme really doesn't fit Unity and the "professional" Ubuntu brand. The Faenza creator has a very good art style that really blends in nicely. I doubt the new Ubuntu icon theme will be square, but that it would rather have the Faenza-like stylishness to it. I'm optimistic.
