As you know part of the scope for 3.3 was a revised admin bar that would reduce duplication in the admin header The header of your site is typically the first thing people will experience. The masthead or header art located across the top of your page is part of the look and feel of your website. It can influence a visitor’s opinion about your content and you/ your organization’s brand. It may also look different on different screen sizes.. The first draft of it has been posted to Trac Trac is the place where contributors create issues for bugs or feature requests much like GitHub.https://core.trac.wordpress.org/..
It needs a color refresh, some optimization, some decisions about which links going where, etc, but is the starting point we are using. Would like to get it back toward the lighter gray we used in the header before, but with some border maybe so it doesn’t look like browser chrome. Fiddling with the links and stuff will happen on Trac, but if anyone wants to mock up some color variations, we have until Sunday.
