New Manju project plans to redraw desktop art

| Most free software projects produce applications for users. A minority,
| however, produce specifications or libraries for developers and other
| contributors. An example of this second type is the recently announced Manju
| project, whose goal is to make themes easier to create. The project's goal is
| to write the specifications and scripts for using scalable vector graphics
| (SVG) files to store widget and other theme-related information that can be
| used on a variety of toolkits.
| But all these advantages are only possibilities. For now, Janik says, "Manju
| needs artistic input. It also needs code for the extraction, and the example
| code to demonstrate how SVG theme files can be used for toolkits." Once that
| work is done, "it also needs integration into existing toolkits. And this is
| something that can't really happen within the scope of the Manju project,
| because it is just providing the necessary groundwork. It depends on
| contributors to the individual toolkits" -- especially GTK+ and Qt.
Microsoft still refuses to support this standard (SVG), corrupting and
polluting ISO with its own rubbish instead.
