Great job!

Can you make version with swapped active and inactive window frame color (like in mare-m theme)?
It would be really great!

The mare-m work is very nice. Yours too.
Could you make a "no-picture" version of the startmenu ?
Also a little bit more differnce between focus and no focused windows would be nice.

Great work by the way.

Thank you. If more people request a start-menu without the user picture, I'll look into it.

Making the inactive window frame white looks ugly, but maybe I could make the close button colour lighter in the next update.
