Hi Samer,

now after the 4.1 release I would like to move this forward and
integrate the new icons as soon as possible in trunk. This will give us
enough time to review the new icons in real life, to fine tune the icons
where necessary and to do proper testing.

Do you have already an idea when you can provide the svg files, yes svg
is best to have the source files in place for later use or minor
changes. In general I would like to suggest that we provide the src
files for any images that other have the chance later to work them. The
experience have shown that otherwise it is hard or impossible to do
minor changes.

I looking forward to the first dev build where we have the new icons in
