Why was Walnut for Thunderbird created?
Walnut started life first a 'wood' theme for Mozilla somewhere around M10 (even before Firefox, Seamonkey, etc), which is now 9.5 years ago! By then the 'wood' idea came from my first attempts at creating a skin for Winamp.
The overall idea behind Walnut is to provide a convincing 'wood' look and feel, for all parts of the application, but with quality widgets using consistent and clear styling. One of the design rules is to always give consistent feedback on the use of widgets, by always providing a clear hover state and active state.
What's next for Walnut for Thunderbird
Main development focuses on supporting extensions, fixing issues (if any!), and keeping up to date with Thunderbird development, including support for current nightlies.
