Package: release.debian.org
Severity: normal
User: release.debian.org at packages.debian.org
Usertags: unblock

Please unblock package mate-themes

+  * New upstream release. (Closes: #775261).

-> I know that in the current phase of the release cycle a new upstream
release is really a no-go. I would not dare this for any other package if
it wasn't the mate-themes package. I really wouldn't!!! But please please
please, do consider an unblock for this one.

MATE upstream has done an excellent job for getting many more GTK3.14
related issues fixed in various MATE themes. It would be a real pain not
having them in Debian jessie (esp. CSD application support in all themes,
but also the PopOver support in the very often used BlackMate and
GreenLaguna theme).

The full set of changes as documented by upstream can be seen belowed:

+    -> This upstream release addresses (like the last release) several issues
+       related to the last-minute upload of GTK3.14 to Debian testing/unstable.
+  * From the recent upstream ChangeLog:
+    - TraditionalOKTest is installable with normal configure flags
+    - add transition effect to buttons and menuitems for Menta themes GTK3
+    - add transition effect to buttons and menuitems for BlackMate and GreenLaguna GTK3
+    - add support for CSD applications in BlackMate and GreenLaguna
+    - improve handling of CSD applications in other themes
+    - add support for popovers in GreenLaguna, BlackMate, ContrastHigh and ContrastHighInverse themes
+    - improve popovers support in Traditional themes
+    - serveral other improvements

Please consider unblocking mate-themes 1.9.3-1. THANKS!!!

If there are any questions, please get back to me via mail or if needed
via #debian-mate on OFTC IRC (we can copy+paste the backlog to this
unblock request, if needed).
