    I dont know if this was the right place to put this. Considering it could be a preview to you all that have never seen this before?, Could be a request if any one would like custom labels for there themes that have kate or caterpillar, Then i guess it could be a release.

    The theme i used for a test is Black Neon Agua, not made by me.
    This is confirmed working on 1.2 caterpillar and 1.3 kate. Not been able to test this on 1.1

    I happen to like the customized label colors. It really helps to finish off a theme on the summerboard i think.

    I have also figured out how to change the font color for both the dock text and the icon text.

    Actually a wow that cool would have been neat. But its cool. i like it so heres the tricks.

    its pretty much if you know how to edit the plist file. If you open up the info.plist file in the devteam folder in Library i believe, you will find a section on the file that says labels, and background labels, fonts and so on... from there you have to add the webcolor code. ill attach my sample.

    After you make this, place it in Var/Mobile/Library/Summerboard/Themes/ and whatever theme Folder you want to have the custom labels and so on. So inside the theme folder it should say, Dock, Icons, Statusbar, wallpaper and the info.plist file.

    This is nice because you can have custom labels for every theme.

    Hope this helps. You can also change the font size, style of font, and tweak the calendar icon., For different themes.
