Yeah, I tend to regrab the pattern with each OS X release.
If Apple keeps fading the stripes, it'll eventually return to Platinum. :)

Expectations have indeed been lowered by sloppy developers, but I see
other people's laziness as our competitive advantage: apply nothing
more than the discipline we learn from Day 1 designing for Mac OS,
reading the HIG and applying as appropriate, when we move our apps to
Windows the integrate better with Microsoft's work than some of our
competitors who've been there for years.
But of course cross-platform HIG adherence will only be pervasive in the
Rev community to the degree the tool makes it easy. If folks have to
jump through hoops just to adopt conventions, must of their work will
look out of synch with modern conventions, reflecting badly on RunRev.
So for the benefit of RunRev Ltd and all of us, for your voting pleasure:
