Glad to see the Expert LED in the code already, fast work!
Thanks! Happens if you have some time on the plane from Sharkfest back home ;-)
Having the click action launch the Expert composite is a nice touch.
I'm using it already myself :-)
The current icon versions do look better than before.
It's still a bit "pixel like", the reason seems that xpm doesn't support alpha channels. Maybe I can motivate myself to implement using png instead of xpm, as the png looks better.
In Linux at least it looks like they could be a few pixels taller, but
this may depend on the font selection for the status bar?
Unsure, I've resized it to 14*14 pixels, maybe that looks ok now?
It also looks
somewhat squeezed between the left of the bar and the first text field
(File information). It might look better spaced if it was centered in a
square space
On Win32 it looks good, could you provide a small screenshot of that bottom left area with the recent icon(s)?
Does GTK2 support SVG in the UI directly?
Not that I know of. But IIRC this is discussed for GTK V3
This would address any scaling
Unfortunately not in all cases. Scaling a complex SVG content down to 16*16 pixels or even lower resolutions can blurr the content completely. For openstreetmap.org I've drawn lot's of map icons in SVG, and it wasn't uncommon that they were useless when scaled down to 16*16 - so I also had to draw a simplified SVG for low resolutions.
