Not entirely a good fit but I'm glad I got it.

I think the accent color is a too vivid, too sharp. Other than that, keep up the good work.

In Ubuntu Software Center there is always the newest version?

Working on it.

Yes we know. Will you finish before next release (3.16 will come out in March'15) ?

I hope so :D

Are these borders intended to be here?
And why the checkboxes are not displayed?
All these issues appeared after upgrading to gtk+-3.14.

It doesn't support 3.14 yet. A port is in the works.

Ah, ok, waiting for it...

Hello! I've just got the light theme and here is a thing. Icons of network, ring and speaker are light so I can hardly recognize them on the light background of the top bar. I see that yours top bar on a screenshot above is black. What can I do with that?
