   Hi Geert,
   just some explanation why I chose those colors. They go well with the
   colors of the account lists :)
   The website looks like it's quite "old" from a design perspective.
   Therefore, I thought a new design would inspire some to overhaul the
   web design, too. As I understand the current situation right, there
   will be a new major release of GnuCash quite soon. This was the reason
   why I took the chance to start something new without overdesigning too
   Btw. I'm also working on a new iconset. Any idea where I find the other
   icons which aren't in the "pixmap" folder? Looks like GnuCash mixes OS
   icons with native ones!?
   Kind Regards.

   You more or less express my opinion as well. A new splash screen would
   be nice, but this one is not what I would choose.

   Tom, I find the splash screen well done in itself. However I'm missing
   some integration with the rest of the GnuCash brand style. The first
   thing that struck me for example is the choice of colours: mostly
   beige/yellow. However look at the GnuCash website for example: it uses
   various shades of purple/lilac.

   I would have gone into more detail, but your splash screen seems to
   have been removed in the meantime so I can't go back to refine my
