I made some fixes and changes to add more polish to the Solar wallpapers for F10 yesterday. Thanks to Martin Sourada for doing all the packaging work; they should be landing soon.
I think it’s important to file bugs on anything you see in the artwork that doesn’t look quite right so the art team can try to address it. That is what made these fixes possible; for the folks working on the artwork they may find themselves staring at it too long so bug reports from folks with a fresher perspective are really helpful. While I have seen a lot of negativity directed towards the art team in the past couple of weeks, including some extreme hostility, I have also seen very few bug reports (Yep, I think that’s all of them.) These bug reports were very good though because they were very specific about what was wrong and what should be fixed vs. vague statements that the artwork is not up to par without any specific criticism that could be used to make it better, which I don’t think helps anybody.
I am hoping in F11 we can get the artwork into the Beta release. With each release we’ve been getting them in earlier and earlier in the cycle; I think getting them in by Beta is really our ultimate goal though, because we really need these bug reports.
Anyhow here is a preview of what the new iterations of Solar will look like.
