Yeah, it's alive :). Finally i've decided to release a new version of Polyester. it contains only some minor bugfixes, in particular the long-annoying bug with kcompmgr should be gone (sometimes the windows weren't completely painted).
As usual here you can download it and here it's the changelog:
-corrected a build problem with automake 2.6+
-better management of the menu stripe width
-another hack for gtk-qt: the menu stripe is always off (yeah, it's a broken solution but it was managed too bad...)
-when both toolbar separators and menubar emphasis with border are turned on don't draw an extra line under the menubar
-when the focus policy is set to "focus follows mouse" the bad flickering should be done (need some testing)
-corrected a bug that caused the windows not being completely painted when kcompmgr is activated
