      Description

      Futon's progress spinner icon found in /share/couchdb/www/image/spinner.gif (used when uploading files and perhaps elsewhere) suffers from the glitch described at http://www.panic.com/blog/2010/10/spinner-rage/, where the fifth frame of the animation flashes more darkly than the others.

      The Panic post on this issue provides a fixed version of the spinner, but it is a Photoshop file:
      http://panic.com/blog/wp-content/files/16x16%20Spinner.psd.zip

      This simply needs to be re-exported by someone with a copy of Adobe's software. (I have a LazyTwitter out on this, otherwise next week I can pester the designers at work for a favor.)

        Fixed in trunk. Getting ready to back port to 1.1.x and 1.0.x as soon as I remember the commands.

        The new spinner looks good on white backgrounds, but unfortunately not on the grey ones in Futon. Is there a matte or background color setting you can export with a darker tone under the semi-transparent parts, while still keeping the fully transparent pixels clear?

        I'm uploading three files:
        spinner33-main_page.gif is matched to the main page top bar color.
        spinner6b-upload_dialog.gif is matched to the #6B6B6B bar in the upload dialog (its color is #666 but also 50% transparent).
        spinner55-compromise.gif has been exported on a #555555 matte, and looks average in both dialogs.

        Ideally each page would use the "right" GIF, but you could also just replace images/spinner.gif with spinner55-compromise.gif for an okayish presentation (it will look a bit fuzzy in the main page and have a slight dark fringe in the upload dialog).

        For future reference: What I did was download the Photoshop CS5 30-day trial, add an "invert" filter layer to the Panic PSD to make it whiter instead of blacker, and then set the matte color while saving via the Save for Web dialog.
