Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala icon theme available for download

Humanity Icons
Canonical is launching a new icon set called Humanity for Ubuntu 9.10. The new operating system should be available to download in a couple of weeks, but if you can't wait that long and don't want to download a pre-release alpha version of Ubuntu 9.10 you can download the Humanity icon set and use it on earlier versions of Ubuntu.

You can also install the icon set by opening a terminal and typing (without quotes): "sudo apt-get install humanity-icon-theme".

The new set includes icons for actions, animations, applications, devices, categories, and a whole slew of other areas.

The entire icon set weighs in at 1.4MB and each icon is saved in Scalable Vector format which means the icons should look good in a variety of resolutions. You can read more about the new icons at the Ubuntu Wiki.
