GNOME tweak tool design refresh

Status: Completed


The GNOME tweak tool provides access to 'tweaks' - settings and changes that fall outside the scope of the control-center, which are still used widely enough to deserve a UI. In the 3.10 cycle, the tweak tool received a complete redesign, which is being implemented as a GSoC project.

The wireframes for the new design are here:
