Yeap, the creator of Faenza Icons, it seems that he will soon release his new work. Also more good news follow, Gnome might release a service to let us install themes online similar to extensions ..and if not, we will :)

He was off for long time, however many people forked and continue his work. Well, today tiheum let us a comment:
Actually, some new versions of Faenza and Faience (both icons and GS/GTK themes) are on the way since a few weeks, as I have a little more spare time to spend for them ;)
I hope to release them soon and you will like the new Faience Gnome-Shell theme (which is very different from the initial one, but more consistent with the GTK3 theme I develop).
A brand new Faience Theme? Am I the only one that I got excited about it? :)
install themes online
I believe that the online extension installer is the best part Gnome 3 -no matter the issues! Just for the story, Jasper St. Pierre is the creator of this and he basically hacks pretty much everything around Gnome 3; Jasper also is a very helpful guy in Bugzilla and Gnome Mailing Lists.
Anyway, the point is that in Gnome some people are thinking to make a respectively to extensions service for Gnome themes. But even if they won’t, we will sooner or later release our theme service, which will be something like that.
Themes in Gnome are hard to discover and harder to install them, why don’t make it easier?
