Jesse made the right comment for the 1px border around the whole Dock. I'm fine the updated look now.

I updated the image so it's 48x48 now.

Also, I think Quentin meant just having a 1px border around the whole dock, not each individual icon. But yes, I agree with Yen-Ju, for now let's not spend too much time tweaking the Dock considering we may not even end up using it.

I put up Etoile logo for now. But that image is 47x48, not standard 48x48. So it looks a little bit off. I use standard window background color. So if you want a darker color for border, it would be better to have a something like darkWindowBackgroundColor so that it will still match regardless theme. But I am not sure about the 1px border. First, many similar implementation have no border. Second, 1px border means 2px line between icons, which is a little bit think. And final, I am not sure AZDock will stay for the long run. It may be merged into other UI components. So I prefer not to fine-tune such things until the UI is settled. By the way, if you want to play, [AZDockView -drawRect:] is where it draws everything.

I would suggest to replace GNUstep icon which looks somewhat out of context by Étoilé icon that can be found here <http://svn.gna.org/viewcvs/etoile/trunk/Etoile/Services/Private/MenuServer/Resources/Etoile.tiff>

Also a 1px gray border around AZDock would make it look better. I think this gray should be picked a bit darker than the one used as AZDock background color. May be Jesse can suggest the proper gray we can pick?… in Étoilé color palette?
