hey guys, i was just wondering if there is a functional panther theming app yet... i don't think i am going to use panther till there is a reasonably reliable way to make it look like jag again, at least to some extent. the toned down stripes is OK, but those gray bars are ass ugly. just no. and i need to get Finder back to aqua. can that be done?

Unsanity's Metalifizer is currently in alpha testing (downloadable alpha from unsanity.org) that can change finder to aqua. It still has some signifigant redraw bugs with certain parts though. It is probably best to wait for final version, unless you really need the metal gone.

wow, that's wonderful to see that they are pretty well on the ball in terms of having their haxies ready for panther. most of the main ones look like they'll be done within a week.

I know what you're thinking, but if it's in alpha, I'd stay away. Generally it's stable enough, but give it a few weeks to hit beta, ya know?

check out Max's Themes (http://homepage.mac.com/max_08/). i'm pretty certain that i read something there about an app that converts/updates themes to be compatible with 10.3.

or are you talking about the app that applies the theme? i'm not too sure about that... but i guess they'll have that all sorted out really quick. :)

well here's some more linkage for you: Fun Mac themes forum (http://www.funmac.com/forumdisplay.php?forumid=71)

they've got a whole forum section dedicated to theming, so i guess they'll have all the latest news.
