Extreme Makeover - R12 Edition

Launch of a new release heralds a makeover of the various components. Release 12 is not an exception to the rule. While we countdown to the official launch, some glimpses of the extreme makeover already previewed at Oracle Openworld 2006 would be discussed on this blog. The sky blue color user interface developed for the new version was code named "Project Swan" and that's the first makeover that's evident. The font used on the interface is now Tahoma 9pt. There are gradient backgrounds for header, footer and sub-tabs. Button style and icons have also undergone some changes.
