I don't remember such a discussion, and honestly I don't mind the theme
used, all screenshots just needs to use the same  Also they should show
an unconfigured/default Geany.  Apart that I don't want them to be taken
under Windows or MacOS, but that's all.

So I'd vote for you (Enrico) adding the missing captures/updating the
necessary ones using the same theme as usual, but that's only because
it'd be probably less work than re-doing all captures with another theme.

If anybody thinks another theme is better (like my own, hehe), feel free
to speak (now, or shut up forever -- just jokin').  But if we choose to
change the theme, I think it's better to use any kind of "vanilla" one
(Clearlooks or whatever) so it feels more natural to most people: I
don't think it's really sensible to change from a custom theme that
don't please everybody to another custom theme that won't please everybody.

My 2¢,
