They are somewhat better, but still not as good as the old ones :)

The database and the calc is now pretty nice (the base should probably be more
"outlined"), but the draw icon is ununderstandable, the impress icon to small,
and the writer/math icon to small. I have pretty good eyesigth, but i had to
bend closer to the screen and stare at them for a while before i understood.

There should be some clear, distinctive shape in them - we humans recognize
things faster based on their shape than on their colours - especially when we
can neither distinguish the colours or the shape :)

I must admit i liked the OO 1 icons better - they where not fancy at all, but
they where clear and understandable. All that is needed, is adding some kind of
likely-styled database icon to the set - what about simply the wireframe "disk"
icon that is present in the first version of the iconset, without all the stuff
around it to distract? There must be somebody at RH/Gnome who can make such an
icon (please don't ask me, my drawings look like a *skilled* 6 year olds :) )
