Agreed. The new visually refreshed icons and tabs are too washed out. The colors in the mock-ups are more saturated and defined and generally look better.

One of the first things I noticed about RC1 was how poorly separated the active tab was from inactive tabs. The mock-ups don't seem to have that issue. Hopefully the theme will be refined before it goes final.
