Hi all !
I just committed a usable version of the Plymouth theme for soft Waves into SVN.
Some reasonable amount testing was done including LUKS passphrase handling so it should be suitable for general use.
More visual improvements and tweaks will probably follow in the future, but I’d say most of the work is done.
I’d also like to handle plymouth theme selection via alternatives if time before the freeze permits. It will be the last missing piece to be able to switch all theme elements globally (grub, login, wallpaper, lockscreen…) with the new desktop-theme alternative I’ve put in place for Stretch. Near-Yay ! :-)
So if someone feels like pushing it to unstable, that will be most welcome.
And as usual, comments are also welcome !
