New Set of Sun Ray Status Icons
By mprove on Aug 25, 2009
Do you notice the difference? No? Good. Good design is when you do not notice it. You probably haven't recognized that the prompt icon has changed compared to the icon that was used for nearly a decade.
The former icon still had the original Sun purple on a beveled button (the latter a usability issue in its own, because there is nothing to click). And even though the Sun Ray 1 is still on duty at many sites, it has long been replaced by a couple of successor models. Hence the icon of the tilted thin client device is not appropriate anymore.
The new set of status icons will be part of the upcoming SRSS 4.2 release. The entire set is presented and explained at SRSS Troubleshooting Wiki.
Thanks to Jörg for the good cooperation, and welcome to the blogosphere.
