Yep, there's a few changes coming in feren OS 2017.1, and they're looking to be awesome, and may affect feren OS for the better.
Screenshots of what's been brewing:
Firstly, some screenshots, where you can get quite a few details if you look with a keen eye:
Now, the default feren OS Look and Feel hasn't really changed all that much and still looks as good, but as you can tell, we're adding gradients to the feren GTK Theme, and they'll also be in the Cinnamon, and so on themes too. Less flat, more beautiful.
The first screenshot however, shows a major change, this is the Windows 10 Layout. Now, it's not the theme, but the layout. This is because of two reasons, the major one: Themes will be downloadable from 2017.1 onwards, in order to save ISO Space, and keep the themes up-to-date at their best standard possible, and, Themer is getting support for 'layout-only', which is a more Zorin-esque way of theming feren OS, where the OS emulates that platform by using that theme's layout, but using feren OS's GTK, Icons, Cinnamon, and so on, with a specially-adapted version of the decorations theme just for that Theme Group. You can also see this in the second image* where you see more macOS-esque Window Decorations in the Screenshot window.
Of course, this is VERY EARLY, and things can and will change through development, but most of this is gonna end up in 2017.1, though, I'm not so sure I'll keep this ISO series, as I couldn't get it to boot from an Etcher-d USB...
*Docky isn't installed yet, but it will be, so that's why no Dock is present in the second image.
Oh, and I'm contemplating whether or not to make a Logo Contest where you submit your own feren Logos for possible use in the OS, though, be sure to send any submissions in the comments (Only Rules: Has to be a bird logo that's original, in blue or white, and SFW (Safe For Work))
It's great making something for the community that might become quite big and remain for a very long time to continue serving the community and helping Linux as a result.
