As you might or might not know, we have been hard at work trying to improve the look and feel of OpenShot, and today I have some big announcements!

First, we have a new default theme for OpenShot in the works! I have included a preview of the theme, which is designed / inspired by artist Jan Hofmann and coded by Maël Lavault. It is not quite final yet, but as you can see by the picture, it looks very sleek. =)

Second, OpenShot will now use stock icons by default! These buttons will now use your system theme stock icons, which will keep OpenShot from standing out as much! Users can still switch back to the original icons if they want to, but by default, it will use stock icons.

Lastly, we have added rounded corners to all thumbnail images, which is a very subtle but beautiful effect. When you add it all together, the new theme, stock icons, and rounded thumbnail images, I think this makes OpenShot the best looking video editor on Linux! I know, I know, that's not saying much, but still...

We are still about a month away from our next release, so please don't attempt to install this development version yet. More big updates to come, so stand by.
