I got the following email from Karsten for developing icons for Swing
based application. I guess
Tango can be used for anything. So you can create your own icons for
items that you don’t find
"The Eclipse project provides two icon sets,
an older one before Eclipse 3.1 M6 and the
current one. I personally use the older one,
because it “works” better with Win2K and OS X.
Both Eclipse icon sets are primarily pixel-based,
don’t scale, but are quite easy to extend even
for developers, which often lack design experience.
Another great icon set is at tango-project.org.
You can download the 0.7.2 tango-icon-theme,
that already has many frequently used icons.
Tango provides all image resources and has info
about how to create new Tango-style icons.
Since you have the sources, you can produce SVGs
and so can scale your icons with the resolution,
which becomes more and more important."
