New Sense UI Theme
[ElCondor], one of our news writers and member of our forums has developed a new look for Sense. This new theme brings a refreshingly original and calm, look and design.
The theme is white with black, it brings the complete look to every single tab in Sense. The release only includes 192X builds of Sense 2.5, but 12XX should be released soon.
