New Chakra edition/update, and this means an artwork update. The artwork set, called "Dharma" and launched in "Claire" is now evolved. Now, I will try to explain the new look and feel of next Chakra's adventure in this Linux world.
In "Claire" the artwork set was inspired in Claire Lotion decease. For this, the artwork in that edition was more "feminity" and "espiritual", with nature and animals photos, bright colors and the orange color as protagonist: the color of buddhist tibetans, fresh and full of life and positivity (like "the life after life").
Now, in "Benz" the style was redefined to the new idea: engineering, technology, progress, "masculinity" and german designs style. The colors now are more cold, with the green and blue as protagonists... but with the "mystic" touch of Chakra, of course!
-RIGHT CLICK AND "VIEW IMAGE" TO SEE THE ORIGINAL SIZES-
No huge and deep changes, only details, good details. The KDM and the KSplash-QML now have a renewed background, with new light and shadow effects, more minimalist. The KSplash-QML now looks a fade-in effect and the spinner is new, with more natural movement and more web inspired.
In the desktop, Caledonia 1.3 will be available, with many changes!

The windows will be decorated with Caledonia colors (color scheme) and a new shadow effect (no the blue light as default KDE and other distros!)
Now the Kickoff/KMenu have a new icon. Is the Chakra's flat icon renewed. For me, the original icon made by Jan Mette is always an inspiration. For "Benz", I restored the icon to give new and fresh touch, consistent with new artwork and color palette.
In the ISOs, the Live mode, Chakra now uses GFXBoot as bootloader menu. For this, Chakra now have a gorgeous welcome splash, that introduces to a menu bootloader, consistent with the GRUB theme.
For Tribe, we'll have many changes. Thanks to Manu Tortosa (and all packagers and developers, of course) we have a visual and exaple keyboard in the new keyboard type selection. And, in time and locate screen, we have a new map, with satellite view, very professional, colored and useful (no more darkness in this!).
We have new 10 Tribe images too. Accord to the new style for "Benz", and with more image quality (more and more quality than "Claire" screens!).
And we have many translations in many Chakra parts, plasmoids, software and more (thanks for all translators!).

Since Malcer did not use any thumbnails, for the pictures showing only in half, right click and select "view image" to view the full version.
As always, great work mate!
We need your help to improve: Get involved
Chakra looks great. With Tribe wanna install everything from scratch, just for the pleasure of enjoying the new
Language Choice section doesn't have Chinese?
The screenshots are already outdated, all languages show now in their original font set, including Chinese.
Make it clear what you are reporting, by including the output of 'uname -a'
Reinstalling Chakra is not normal. On -Syu --force it is. --force, not even once.
Congratulations on the new Chakra theme, it looks awesome.
In soviet Russia, hamsters eat you.
