Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The completely new theme for Ubuntu 8.04 has been deferred to the following release. The original plan was to have a fresh theme for every long-term-support release, starting with Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron. Now it has been decided to put off the redesign until Ubuntu 8.10. Many theme concepts can be found in the Ubuntu Artwork wiki.

Doesn't it make more sense to release a new theme outside of a LTS? That way any possible minor issues that crop up or just minor needed improvements can be applied to the next release (up to and including the LTS).

It makes sense to change the theme in the release after each LTS.

That being said, I am looking forward to the theme update, and I'm sorry to see that I may have to wait a little longer to have it.
