      Release Notes: This version contains another major code reorganization, along with some ensuing cleanup. It adds an apply button and removes the tabs, putting everything on a single window. It no longer resets the custom font when changing themes, ensures all apps pick up the custom font when using a "gtk-font-name" setting, and parses the gtkrc for existing settings at startup.

        Re: Thank you!

        My pleasure!

        And watch out, itís about to become even better. :) (I have icon theme support planned soon-ish, and Iím looking into what other gtk+ settings might be useful to expose in the UI.)

        Thank you!
        I am KDE user, and your program is very handy for me. I do not like gtk-qt, it's buggy and scrambles some uis. With gtk-chtheme I can tune my gtk application to be just nice. Thank you.

        Thank you
        This app simply rocks - i do not use-have gnome and trying new themes involved editing manually the file ~/.gtkrc-2.0 or resorting to gtk-theme-switch2 which is pathetic and problematic.Your application saves me a lot of trouble now.It works perfectly.Thanks again.

        It's a really great tool.

        If you change your dektop style often and you hate the annoying UI of gtk-theme-switch2, then this is for you.
