Welcome to the Dark Side – Introducing the New Obsidian skin

Last modified date

Release 12 Blog - Release Contents Part 1


We are announcing today our sleek, new Obsidian skin that will be part of the SmartClient/Smart GWT 12.0 release. Like the ‘Tahoe’ skin that was released earlier this year, we designed this skin using your feedback asking for current design trends towards a flatter, square look and feel. Obsidian is our new dark skin with a design that is both sophisticated and modern for your applications built with SmartClient and Smart GWT. 

Have a sneak peek at the new skin below. You can also find our full Showcase of examples using the new skin here.
