Ubuntu developer Iain Lane managed to port the Ambiance theme to the latest GTK+ 3.20 technologies, and he also updated some of the GNOME components Ubuntu is using, such as the Nautilus file manager, and Baobab disk usage analyzer tool, along with the GTK+ port of Mozilla Firefox 47.0 for Ubuntu 16.10.
These were available for users who had the courage to test them in a PPA only for the upcoming Yakkety Yak release (see installations instructions below), but bugs were present, and not everything worked as expected. Iain Lane has updated his initial statement, informing that he has also managed to fully port the Radiance theme to GTK+ 3.20 and that everything will land in the main Ubuntu 16.10 repos soon.
