Hi, +Joshua Fogg here. You might know me from Numix and from Ozon as working on the icon theme and managing the GitHub repos. This is a long one so feel free to scroll to the TL;DR at the end.
 
------

> Hey Josh, what's up?
 
As of November 1st it will be 5 months since we posted an update and longer still since we pushed any major code changes to Atom. A lot of you have been wondering why this is the case so it's only fair that we update you on the goings on behind the scenes.
 
 
> That's quite a big gap!
 
Yeah, it's no secret that we've been struggling over the last year with developer power. Ozon was conceived by +Nitrux S.A. and +Numix Project two very design centred groups, and so we started with a very design heavy collective. At the time of Ozon's creation we had a massive influx of developers but these lost interest surprisingly quickly.
 
 
> Why did they lose interest?
 
Atom, the DE purpose built for Ozon, is built from GNOME extensions which are coded in GJS (https://wiki.gnome.org/action/show/Projects/Gjs?action=show&redirect=Gjs). The original logic of this was sound: we wanted to harness the power of GNOME but put our own spin on it while not forking anything. This didn't work out as nicely as we'd hoped - GJS is notoriously difficult to work with because of the lack (in some cases complete absence) of documentation, which is why our devs kept running away. We managed to get the beta ISO but the months after that were pretty slow and while we kept hoping it would improve the opposite was happening.
 
 
> So what happens now?
 
A couple of months ago we were approached on Google+ by the +Korora Project developers about a possible merger and making Ozon a gaming edition of their already well established distro. After some internal discussion we've decided to accept their offer.
 
 
> What's going to happen to Atom?
 
Atom is being dropped as a DE. For the foreseeable future Atom will remain on the Ozon GitHub (https://github.com/ozonos). We're happy to merge in contributions from the community too, we just won't be doing any work in it ourselves.
 
 
> What's going to happen to the Ozon theme suite?
 
One of the big things that came out of the merger is there's interest in using the themes as the default for a future Korora release, so that's what I'll be working on. Because of this they will probably be moved to the Korora GitHub (https://github.com/kororaproject) sometime soon.
 
 
> What will the other Ozon members be doing?
 
+Paolo Rotolo and I are the only two moving straight to Korora. The others have either taken an opportunity to call this a day or work on another project for a while first.
 
 
> Can I keep using Ozon or Atom?
 
We'd highly recommend you don't. For the last few months we've been paying to keep the Ozon server (where the repos are hosted) online but we'll be shutting that down pretty soon. The only available ISO is based on an old version of Fedora and pretty soon Atom will stop working with the latest version of GNOME.
 
We recommend you switch to Korora (https://kororaproject.org/) - it's Fedora based like Ozon and comes with a tonne of great features.
 
------
 
TL;DR: Ozon is merging into Korora. Atom is being dropped but we'll be working on the theme suite to hopefully make it default in a future release. I'm sure you all have a bazillion questions I've not thought of so ask away and I'll do my best to answer them all.

-----

So long, and thanks for all the fish!

No more binary files! \O/

About 6 months ago one of our contributors +Bilal Elmoussaoui pointed out that our base theme still contained some outdated PNGs carried over from the GNOME icon theme. We wanted to change that, so we did!

Since then a group of 6 devs, mostly from the community, have been working super hard to irradiate these files and replace them with much higher quality SVGs. Just a few moments ago the last one was removed!

This is a pretty great achievement and a big thanks go out to all the contributors who've worked on this issue, and continue to work on other issues & requests within Numix Project. You have our love!

Just a quick PSA: if you're using a +Numix Project icon theme on +elementary Luna we recommend that you upgrade to Freya as soon as possible, especially now 0.3.1 has been released.

We have a few bugs which only affect those of you still on Luna and we can't fix them without breaking stuff elsewhere. While we're still happy to cover minor things (we pride ourselves on our themes completeness) major things like this will now be marked as WONTFIX.

So yeah, get yourself on Freya! I know having to do a fresh install is a bit of a faff but it's a brilliant release and really worth the effort.
After just a few months, we’re excited to announce a major upgrade for elementary OS Freya! This new version 0.3.1 closes about 200 reports and brings new features, tons of fixes, better hardware...

+Uri Herrera Yeah I think they used the Breeze icons as a starting point. We're working on bringing Numix up to parity with Breeze so that our KDE users get a more complete experience :)

In other words: Yeah, Luna was great and still is in some way, but embrace the now and upgrade already girls and boys, Freya is off the hook!

What sort of stuff do you need help with, I'm more of a coder/packager than designer.

We haven't posted a big news post for a whlie so thought I'd take the time to explain a major fix which landed yesterday in the Base and Circle icon themes.

This is the issue of panel icons showing up where panel icons shouldn't be and app icons showing up where app icons shouldn't be. The former issue was heavily noticable in GNOME and Cinnamon and the latter was noticable in all DEs which involved a tray section (XFCE, Unity, Pantheon, etc). These two issues were at loggerheads with each other - we couldn't fix one without aggravating the other.

For over 10 months now we've been looking for a solution to this. Now, after over 500 messages back and forth, contributions from Numix devs but most importantly community contributors, we now have a solution. Over the last week it has been merged and tested and we're now confident that it's ready for public consumption.

There are two major drawbacks I think you should all be aware of though.

1. You now have to have both Circle and Base installed in the same directory. This means having them both in /usr/share/themes/ or both in ~/.local/share/themes/ - if you install via the PPA, AUR, or corp this does not apply to you since this will be done automatically.

2. We can no longer support programs that use the same name for their app icon and their status icon. This is a case of the upstream developer not following naming standards and should be reported to them not us. Up to now we've just allowed them and made do with the bugs it causes but no more!

Despite those 2 small drawbacks we're pretty happy with this. It means that we can concentrate on expanding and improving the theme rather than having to spend time fix bugs that actually caused by our theme.

Next on our todo list:
* Implement HiDPI support thanks to help from elementary
* Update Square to reflect all these awesome changes
* Get the GTK SASS rewrite ready for release.

That's all for now. If you have been, thanks for reading!
