I've spent a good deal of time converting the Noia Warm Iconset, because it doesn't work with current version of Gnome in Ubuntu 8.04.
I thought I'd share what I've got so far. It's by no means finished or complete, but it's a good place to start. If anybody wants to help me finish it, please contact me.
As for Carlitus, the one who made the icons, he hasn't made an update since 2004. It's probably safe to assume he has no plans to update it.
