Brushed 2beta release date

To all pleasure seekers:
I’d liked to release early this time and I’ve really tried hard to get a beta-version of Brushed going for you as a little present right on 24th.
But I didn’t succeed as I got ill a few days ago and changes between the code base of Firefox 1.5 and 2.0 are more difficult than I’ve suspected (tabs are completely corrupted at the moment, no tab-closebutton to see at all).

I’m lookin forward releasing before New Year’s Eve, although I’m an optimistic person in regards to release dates. Working digitally and being optimistically time-wise seems to be a contradiction in terms sometimes. ;)

Schöne Feiertage!

Thanks a lot to all of you, who have already downloaded and appreciated using it and who have given support to improve this theme. For all others: GO, GET IT!

According to it, the usage of the question mark message symbol is not recommended (any longer): Weiterlesen
