New Icons aren't an improvement
I'm running inkscape on ubuntu - built yesterday from SVN.
The new icons are NOT an improvement. What was wrong with the old ones? I know there's been a lot of discussion and issue with the icon code, but I understood this to be to make it possible to change the theme easily - not throw out the existing icons.
the new icon for the tweak tool is possibly better, but the new node icons are terrible. It's very difficult to see the difference between the symmetric and auto-smooth icon - and as such it doesn't communicate that difference at all. Knowing that one is a square and the other is a circle doesn't really help the user understand the difference.
The align and distribute icons are not as clear either.
just... well..... yuck yuck yuck.
Is there a reason for the change? Is this to enhance usability? based on what guidelines? Or just because someone designed some new icons and felt like it?
I understand I can probably change this back for myself by swapping out some icon file somewhere - but for the average user who doesn't know that I really don't think this is an improvement. In fact I really believe it decreases usability and discoverability.
Also - what happened to the KB shortcuts in the tool tips?
