Summary

Add some spit and polish to the GNOME Do symbol interface by adding some shadows, curves, and glossiness.

Release Note

This interface is essential for our first release.

Rationale

The current symbol interface is bland and looks flat, especially when drawn on screens without transparency. By making some small stylistic changes (or large ones) we can dramatically improve the friendliness and sexiness of the symbol interface.

Use Cases

Assumptions

Design

First, see Apple's high-resolution 'Spaces' icon.

Second, see GNOME Do's symbol interface as of 09/26/2007.

Third, see the Spaces icon/Do symbol interface mockup.

Finally, implement this interface.

Implementation

Either modify existing interface code with new drawing code, or create a new window class.

UI Changes

See above.

Code Changes

See implementation.

Migration

N/A.

Test/Demo Plan

New interface should be 100% feature compatible with existing symbol interface.
