Hello! It's been a while since we submitted themes here—last time we did was with [personal profile] rise a year ago—so we took the time to made some color variants on the gradient themes we submitted before. (Most of these are dark themes, because a lot of people really loved Barren Winter Trees.)

We did do some basic testing with Color Oracle to be sure that they don't disintegrate into unusable blobs for people with deuteranopia, protanopia, or tritanopia, and we checked the contrast to make sure the text is readable/accessible. But, of course, further testing is always a good idea!

Hello again! Since there were some delays regarding our CLA (apologies to everyone regarding that), I made some minor adjustments to the Gradients themes' s2 color assignments under the hood, and those changes should hopefully fix some minor display problems in webkit browsers and make user customization a little easier. It also had the side effect of making legible Dark Layouts much easier to manage, so I made one!

Unlike French Gradients and Cool Gradients, it also has a custom sans serif font stack defined. That's because I received some good feedback on the original custom css about how it looks with sans serif fonts, and I happen to love that particular font stack with dark color schemes. (Optima!♥) It's all defined using s2, of course, so it should be simple to change if a user prefers another look.

As with French Gradients and Cool Gradients, testing and feedback are extremely welcome! The IE9 problems are still unresolved, as is the issue with the gradients not appearing properly (or AT ALL) in Opera 11.

Hello! First time submitting themes here, though we should still have a valid CLA from May, 2010, when we submitted some v-gift art.

These are basically the same theme with different temperatures—Cool Gradients is just French Gradients with the red and blue channels swapped. It seems stable after conversion, but I think it needs some crossbrowser testing and code-checking before we can be sure that it's 100% ready to go.

The gradient in the original layout was an image, but to allow for color customization by users, it's been completely converted to CSS3 linear gradients which use s2 color variables.
