Rated 3 out of 5 stars
To be honest, I don't quite like the new version. The italic style of the description text in the search bar (and the Awesomebar as well) is ugly. It was one of the most annoying things of the Strata theme and what I appreciate about Phoenity Aura is its classic style.
Too bad I do not seem to be able to change it on my own.
Italic text fix
