New Creme Coffee skin for Swing applications

Just before the feature freeze of Substance 4.1, i added a new Coffee Cream skin that is based on the existing Creme skin and the Ubuntu’ish brown active theme. If you want to take it for a spin, click on the WebStart button below and change the skin to Coffee Cream from the “Skins” menu:

To use it in your application, you have the following three options:

  • -Dswing.defaultlaf=org.jvnet.substance.skin.SubstanceCremeCoffeeLookAndFeel
  • UIManager.setLookAndFeel(new SubstanceCremeCoffeeLookAndFeel())
  • UIManager.setLookAndFeel("org.jvnet.substance.skin.SubstanceCremeCoffeeLookAndFeel");

Here are a few screenshots that show this new skin. A small frame with a tabbed pane and a few different controls:
