SVG Icons: BlueSphere-0.2.4 released

Nov.15, 2002
* bugfix release of BlueSphere SVG Icon theme
* Recommended Toolbar icons size is 32x32 or 48x48 (yes, 48x48 size for Actions is avilable in BlueSphere icon theme)
* 22x22 icons are usable, but sometimes need extra work.
* 0.3.x releases would be targeted at these issues.

I awould appreciate help/comments on enhancing
BlueSphere icon theme.
In particular, I'd like to hear what needs to be chnaged for upcoming GNOME 2.2/GTK 2.2 release.
As there is a new common Icon Theme format for GNOME and KDE, I'd like to create one, reusable icon theme, which would be shared between those two desktops.
