    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time,

The news is GNOME is in the process of a big app icon redesign which includes tools to help make them easier. According to Jakob Steiner, A GNOME designer, there have been some problems with the old ways which he outlines here.

Elementary OS' own Cassidy James Blaede comments further.

One of the main changes is, Instead of half a dozen rendered PNGs, there will now ship a single color SVG and a symbolic SVG. I'm all for less bloat and ease of use but I hope the new icons don't become too generic.

The new Pop Icon theme is intended to allow us to carry Pop branding with the core OS applications but to blend well with the upstream GNOME icons too.
